In seriousness though, Doctor Who is really great. Inconsistent and the filler episodes can be really garbage at times but at it's peak it's wonderful.

IMO it was the best season yet, though I could understand Season 4 being better to some. The show was always brilliant from a visual sense, as well as being brilliantly acted, written and all the characters being interesting and provoking. Season 5 though really pushes the series into darker areas and really delves closer into the psyches of a lot of the characters as the world begins to slowly change. Pete's story arc is heartbreaking and gripping, Don's family life and struggle to come to terms with the changing nature of society makes for a great story arc, Penny and Joan both grow and have different takes on the place of a woman in the man's world and its really interesting how both characters have to face largely similar issues but take extraordinarily different paths along the way.

Near enough every character has a story/direction throughout the series and the build into the closing episodes is magnificent with a lot of subtle storytelling devices being implanted in numerous episodes that set up a possible gripping climax. I won't say much more for fear of spoiling anything you wish to find out for yourself. Its essentially got everything you love about Mad Men, but I found they tackled and presented a lot of symbols and ideals terrificly and developed numerous characters over the course of the season to greater heights.

I like season 4 a bit more but its pretty close.

Fuck you Seabs BSG > British shit.

MrMister my guess for Whitney even being on air in the first place is she probably a dirty whore who fucked her way into a TV deal. Just like Lamb Chop, eh WOOLCOCK.

I had to quickly re-read your post as I thought you'd said you'd finished Season 4, otherwise I would have accidentally spoiled something.

I remember when it was airing and we had the discussion thread that everyone was loving the season and thinking it was potentially the best. As I said, it had all the traits that make you love Mad Men but they also had a range of interesting stories which built beautifully and the overall tone was much darker. Vincent Kartheiser also arguably steals the show this season as well ahead of Jon Hamm, though the acting across the board was stellar as per usual.

The finale was also really interesting in how they're going to go with Season 6 btw.

Out of shear lack of creativity, I can't think of anything right off the hoof. Gonna have to chew the cud on that one for awhile. I wouldn't want to ram any dumb puns down your throat.

Btw, you heard about the locally produced Welsh film based on Rambo? Lambo.

Aaaaaaand I'm done.

Season 5 is the best season of it for me. Just amazing for all the reasons WOOLCOCK mentioned.

Prefer 1 and 4 but 5 was absolute class as well. There was a stretch in the middle where they just hammered out hour after hour of masterful television. Much prefer Mad Betty to Megan though and couldn't really get into her scenes or story.
