Love it. One of the best scenes ever written and produced. As good as anything that Paddy Chayefsky wrote in Network.
Zzzzzzzzzz. I wasn’t aware Alan Poul was an EP here. That might explain the Six Feet Under-esque promo before. While that type of style worked for SFU, it appears pretentious here. Of course, at least I have an opinion of that promo; this one I barely kept my eyes open.
Recently my advertising agency ended a long relationship with Lucky Strike cigarettes, and I’m relieved.
For over 25 years we devoted ourselves to peddling a product for which good work is irrelevant, because people can’t stop themselves from buying it. A product that never improves, that causes illness, and makes people unhappy. But there was money in it. A lot of money. In fact, our entire business depended on it. We knew it wasn’t good for us, but we couldn’t stop.
And then, when Lucky Strike moved their business elsewhere, I realized, here was my chance to be someone who could sleep at night, because I know what I’m selling doesn’t kill my customers.
So as of today, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce will no longer take tobacco accounts. We know it’s going to be hard. If you’re interested in cigarette work, here’s a list of agencies that do it well: BBDO, Leo Burnett, McCann Erickson, Cutler Gleason & Chaough, and Benton & Bowles.
As for us, we welcome all other business because we’re certain that our best work is still ahead of us.

Technically this is a promo for a teaser for the second season premiere.
I hope Al Jazeera America is using HBOs The Newsroom as a template for the kind of news programming they will do.
Well this tells us absolutely nothing except what happened in the first season. Dumb. And Jane Fonda needs to lay off the surgery. Homegirl looks more plastic than Pamela Anderson’s chest.
Is this the HBO show that was so good that they had to reboot it? The network wanted this P.O.S. to be a hit so bad that they renewed during the opening credits of the pilot episode. Like last year this’ll be one of the HBO shows that no one will be watching but everyone (In the media) will be talking about.
“as good as anything Patty Chayefsky wrote in Network”
Even if The Newsroom was well-written this would be a stupidly hyperbolic thing to say, but the fact that you’re saying it about this show is embarrassing.
This program is perhaps the first series for some time that keeps you at the edge of your seat. In plain words. .it is excellent,well casted and very well produced. I hope that there will be many more seasons to come. Thank you for noteworthy entertianment.
