I wrote a REALLY long piece of my UOs for S5 Don/Peggy. I just decided to make it it's own post. I'll come back (probably much later) with my other Mad Men S5 Unpopular Opinions.

Sometimes they drag the secretaries in for focus groups to try things and I was discovered. Like Esther Blodgett.Collapse )</i>

OK- continuing the UO Mad Men/The West Wing Unpopular Opinions series- but I need to put more thought into my West Wing S3 UOs. (Hmm, the choices I use for the LJ cut tend to be...ahem, Sterling's Gold. Sounds about right for my taste in sound bites.)

Let me put it in account terms: Are you aware of the number of hand jobs I’m going to have to give?Collapse )

For this post, I'm putting my Mad Men Season 2 and West Wing Season 2 unpopular opinions in the same post- but divided them with different cuts (with quotes thematic to the OPPOSITE show but both from S2 to amuse myself).

That"s what it is. Right after admitting that we are powerless over alcohol and a higher power can restore us to sanity. That"s where you come in.Collapse )

Every scientist, engineer, general, is trying to figure out a way to put a man on the moon or blow up Moscow, whichever one costs moreCollapse )

This is my latest vid about Megan & Don.  It is not my usual fare – it is a straight up shippy vid. No angst, no sorrow, no tragedy. Just happy, shippy Don & Megan.  I needed to make this video to “cleanse” (LOL) from Season 1 & 2 because I’d actually like to still like Don.  I cannot stand him in those seasons – he is such a dick (hubby and I just finished up Season 2). I needed to make this video so I could “remember” the good times with Megan. J I love the Don that loves Megan.  He’s still angsty – I love dark and tortured men – but he lets Megan support him to some extent – and he tries with her.  Unlike Betty - who he totally shuts out. He is so emotionally unavailable to her it is unbelievable. Been there.  Done that.  It’s just too freakin’ painful to watch.  Probably why my last vid (a Don/Betty one) was so hard to do.  Don knows how to be a good husband.  He just isn’t.  Ugh.

In this video Don is in rare form:  He is actually happy.  Yes, a lot of sexy, smiling scenes of Don. J You could argue that he’s not really happy.  But I choose to believe that he is or at least thinks he is with Megan.

I chose the “bubble gum pop” song “The Right Stuff” by the New Kids on the Block (don’t kill me!) because to me it just fits them so much.  And hey, it’s a shippy vid!  So it’s okay, right?

Initially I was so pissed at Don for dropping Dr. Faye Miller to MARRY Megan.  It was a serious WTF moment!!! I figured he did it because he was scared at how close Faye was getting to him and panicked, making a compulsive mistake - just choosing Megan because she happened to be good with his kids.  But then I do believe Don actually fell in love with Megan (for real) after the Heinz pitch.  He fell in love with her brain – he loved the way her mind worked.  And then they were SO good together. Sigh. I tried to showcase that in this vid.

Why are men so hot doing "Men's Work?"  Here Don wows the ladies with his faucet-fixing skills.

I wrote this fic exploring Megan & Don's questionable beginning through the beginning of the end of their relationship.  Links below:

Here's yet another wallpaper I made for Mad Men.  I feel like I just can't stop making these right now.  :-)

This one is Betty's father taking Don to task.  I wish my father had said something along these lines to my ex-husband.  I know he was thinking it.

I'm travelling today so I thought this scene was appropriate to work with while I was on the plane.  Roger’s finest moment – and my favorite quote of the entire show. It’s so Roger . . . and so Don.
