  1. I don't think Don wrote it. I think it was just a snarky coda to the series. Looked at that way, it's not too bad. If Don did write it though... yuck. Cynical isn't the word.

     

     

    Yeah I didn't get that Don wrote or imagined the Coke ad during mediation I think the dude was just real happy and at peace with himself for the first time in years.

     

    That's how I interpreted the ending.  I know it's some Joseph Campbell shit and some might think it's outdated, but to have to protagonist of your story undergo this journey of self discovery, only to return the the same old life, is ridiculous and unsatisfying. 

  2. He was also generic action guy in The Chronicles of Riddick. It wasn't until Star Trek that I realized he had charisma, and then Almost Human(damn you Fox) showed that he was an amazing talent and should be in better roles.

     

    He was so great in Almost Human and yes, fuck Fox for interfering, airing it out of order, switching timeslots and then cancelling when it couldn't "find an audience."

  3. Listless, dull episode.  The perfect end to a listless, dull final season.  Maybe Weiner was getting all meta, like the aimlessness of this season was a reflection on Don's own aimlessness.  All the symbolism was just so fucking heavy handed and amateurish. 

     

    I didn't interpret the ending as Don going back to advertising and using his hippie experience to write the famous Coke jingle but it appears I'm in the minority.  If that's indeed the intended ending, that's awful.  Guy has a breakthrough about how he's wasted his entire life, only to return to that same empty life and make millions because the very place where he had that breakthrough also gave him a surefire idea?  Hippies give Don the only moment of actual truth in his life and then he uses it in an ad?  That's cynical as fuck.

     

    "I've learned so much and really grown....oh well, back to the soulless business of selling shit to people who don't need it.  I'll call the escort service so the hookers are waiting for me when I get back."

  4. Like, I look on this board...it doesn't seem terribly different from any other group of guys in their 20s/30s/40s that watch other sports or anything else. 

     

     

    This board is not representative of the majority of wrestling fans.  Go read the comments on any wrestling newz site and you'll begin to understand that the majority of fans are fucking morons and that these network ad people are 100% correct.  If you're not the typical wrestling fan, congratulations are in order.  But you can't say, "well I'm not a dumb hick, so these network execs are wrong about wrestling fans!"

     

    Seriously, these people live and die by demographics.  It's their job.  They're not underestimating wrestling fans.  "Intelligent" wrestling fans are a very tiny minority.  If these ad execs think the audience for Physchic Bigfoot, Hillbilly Hand Fishin' etc is more attractive to advertisers than wrestling fans are, then odds are they're correct.

  5. Gym pet peeve: do not fucking ask me how many sets I have left.  You can ask if you can work in, but essentially saying "when are you going to be done with that so I can use it?" is some bullshit.

     

    The best part is that when this happened, I was fucking around and doing something different on chest day...doing as many reps as I could, taking 10 pounds off the bar, doing as many reps as I could with that, then just going like that until I felt like not doing any more.  So when I guy asked, I just shrugged and said, "I don't know." 

     

    Fuck em.

  6. Was checking the channel guide for El Rey yesterday and it had a pirate movie listed twice that day.  It was apparently from 1948 and starred Gene Kelly and Judy Garland.  Didn't see the first airing of it, but the one at 11pm was definitely not related to pirates.  Or from 1948.  I have Comcast.  Did anybody else get this because it was confusing to see that listed.

     

    I have Comcast and saw that listed as well, but I'm in Maryland also -- Montgomery County.  I thought it was weird that a Judy Garland movie was on El Rey.

     

    Comcast frequently fucks up listings in my area.  Twice I've seen Halloween and Friday the 13th listed with descriptions of the original films, only to find the remakes airing when I turned them on.

  7. Yep, Dario just chillin' in the office, absolutely unconcerned, even a bit amused, was fucking awesome.  I believe he actually got up to freshen his drink. 

     

    No way will the window be boarded up.  Dario doesn't roll like that.

  8.  

    I think that a lot of that was on Cesaro.  Cesaro seemed to be trying out a lot of new offense and some of it just looked like he didn't have it timed out right. 

     

    He did the Chris Hero "flip over the top rope and then kick the guy in the chest" spot and it was definitely mistimed and awkward.
