mad men


Front of the Mad Men DVD I have has a ***** from Metro, attached to the quote: AS NEAR TO GENIUS AS TV GETS. Who lets people like this near a typewriter? It's not quite 'This drags digital radio kicking and screaming into the 21st century', which was another Metro line a few years ago and might be one of my all-time favourite pieces of nonsense, but it's bad.

Or maybe the reviewer really does think telly can't be genius. He shouldn't be reviewing it if that's the case, but I bet it's not the case. I bet he's just an idiot.

(And surely someone at the DVD company noticed. I mean, you want the stars, and Metro is something a lot of people read, but why not just go with 'GENIUS' and the *****?)
