No one makes engaging drama about the people who built the first British railways, do they? No, we just get documentaries about it on BBC4 presented by men in cardigans. Did the British railway pioneers spend half their time shooting folk, throwing back sippin' whisky and frequenting mobile brothels? Probably not, and anyway, no one wants to see them do it.
The bastards at Terminus have beaten him so bad, his moustache has slipped off his upper lip and into his mouth. Animals.
This picture was shared by the official Mad Men Facebook page earlier today. Some of Don Draper's achievements as a father include:
- marrying his children's mother and parenting them through their formative years under a false identity
- sleeping with his daughter's teacher
- getting caught by his daughter in bed with his neighbour
- growing so bored at his daughter's birthday party that he gets drunk, goes out to pick up her cake and drives around with it for hours rather than going home.
Still, he did buy Sally some Beatles tickets. Happy Draper Day!
"I grew up in a knocking shop and I poison everything I love, but you're the only one who understands me, Natalie Napkin," says Don in the first episode's cold opening. Twenty minutes in, he starts cheating on it with a balloon whisk.
No, I've got nothing else; I just like that pun. Mad Men season seven is back on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday 16 April.
Otherwise his feet would be burning. Ignore the fact that it's the car boot and not the bonnet, and take a moment to consider how many levels this joke works on. I counted six.
We did a quick look round the internet the other day and realised that practically no one is writing anything about Breaking Bad. Way to drop the ball, other websites: it's a pretty big deal, you know! Lucky you've got us around to discuss the face off it. (Spoilers all over the place, obviously.)
I haven't seen Low Winter Sun yet, but if this is anything to go by, it looks like pretty intense stuff. Witness Mark Strong, a tough cop hardened by a life seeing horror after horror on the streets of Detroit, giving a man a wet willie till he coughs up the information he wants. Next week: Mark nicks a guy's He-Man lunchbox and throws it on the roof of the science block to teach him a lesson.

Trailer here. Spoiler alert: they're still in the bloody prison, and Grouty wants Egg to distract Mr Barrowclough so Ives can smuggle a load of butter out of the kitchen.

With only eight episodes to go, I have no idea whatsoever how Breaking Bad's going to finish this year, and even less how I'm going to fill the empty shell of a life it'll leave behind for me. Maybe I'll try and recreate key scenes in the shed.
