I hate segmented seasons enough when they are a couple months apart.

This is absurd.

And the only reason it's happening is that Matt Weiner wanted an additional episode, 14 instead of 13, to wrap up the story, and AMC was too goddam cheap for that.  Apparently, making 7, shutting down production, then making 7 more is cheaper.

Worse.

All 14 are in the can. Or the SD Card.

Weiner and AMC want 2015 Emmys. I kid you not.

Correction (after figuring out the timeline):

They want *2016* Emmys.

Didn't watch a single episode this season because the scheduling is absurd.

I'll either catch up before the final run, or pick up the DVDs secondhand after the series is over, so AMC doesn't make any money off of me for their stupidity in dragging the series out a year longer than they should have.

I came here to express split season hate but I see that's already covered.

It'll be the  2015 Emmys.  This season will be eligible for the Emmys in August.  Next season will be eligible for the Emmys in September of 2015.

Don's an expensive piece of horseflesh!!
 
2014-05-25 10:37:54 PM  
No, not Cooper. He's gone before we even get to the back half of the season?
 
2014-05-25 11:01:05 PM  
Its been running on fumes for at least 2 seasons. And because its not HBO, I don't have to pay for it.

/I'd never pay a taxible cent for HBO, AMC, FX, or any other network. Why would I, when I have so many of you guys who happily keep doing so?
 
2014-05-25 11:11:59 PM  
That was awesome!
 
2014-05-25 11:22:40 PM  
I called the Cooper thing last week. I'm very proud of myself for raising my correct prediction rate for this show to .01%.
 
2014-05-25 11:38:27 PM  
Bert is dead?

Oh no!

Cutler is a cold cold basturd!
 
2014-05-26 12:13:09 AM  
Nice send off for Robert Morse.
 
2014-05-26 02:18:57 AM  
Snape killed Cooper.

That and AMC doesn't have much in the arsenal to replace it. Breaking Bad is gone, and when Mad Men wraps up, AMC has lost their 2 flagship shows. Walking Dead is probably going to end pretty soon as well. While Hell on Wheels and Turn are interesting, they don't have the same impact. And Better Call Saul is a shaky bet at best, considering that, judging from the casting decisions, it's trading mostly on Breaking Bad nostalgia.

AMC needs to come up with something quick, or they'll go back to being the station that just shows Road House every other night.

Walking Dead could probably run for another 10 years if they wanted it to.

Shame they're ending Mad Men.  If Matt Wiener had been more consistent with his schedule and AMC and he hadn't wasted a year negotiating contracts, we probably could have gotten an extra season or two in by now. That being said, who really wants to see 1970s Pete or Harry.

The musical send off for Bert with the gals in miniskirts and thigh highs was probably just the right point in time to go.

I think a new Fark meme was born last night.

And the thing I found myself wondering about was how things will will play out between Don and Peggy from here on out.  If Don had known that Roger was working out a deal that would save his job at the firm, would he have let her take over?  Probably not.  But he did, and now Peggy truly knows now that she can do anything Don can.

Also, it was fun watching asshole Lou get slapped down by Jim.  Yeah,  STFU and go draw your shiatty Beetle Bailey-wannabe comic strip, Lou.

Stealing that meme for triple bonus hockey.

Last night was -- surprisingly good. Halfway mark of 1969, wrapped up storylines. Weiner may actually know where to end the series.

And you are all right. Emmys in September. Question is if the episodes have been done or will be done. Bottom line is 8 years with 7-year contracts.

Bert's sendoff was perfect. And shame on those who didn't get the shoutout reference.

Sally didn't go to Woodstock, so that prediction shiat the bed.

Poor Harry. In the end, he was a pawn in game of life. And he would have sided with Don over Cutler.

If the first episode is any indication, 'Halt and Catch Fire' is going to be awesome.

Turn is fantastic. I really hope it sticks.
