Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.
I'm probably the only one on the internet who is watching AMC's Mad Men, but I'm here to tell you it's pretty great -- sorta like Sopranos for the advertising world. Some videos.
I'll second that.

It's too bad the show's on AMC because it deserves wider viewership. I didn't even know that I had AMC until I went looking for this show...what a backwater that channel is!

Are the episodes online anywhere?

You are not the only person on the net watching Mad Men--hating on its historical accuracy or lack thereof is a pastime on many TV sites.

it is a good show. and at least they make an effort at historical accuracy, and they pick up on smart things to highlight, like the VW "Lemon" add.
matt, you can download them from itunes. it's definitely worth the $4 for the first two episodes.

Hmm... My favorite advertising based movie is still "Roger Dodger".

I'm watching it and really enjoying it - this Thursday's epsiode was especialy strong ... Double Mad Men
