"Mad Men" Totally Rips Off Our Concept
So, I'm just now catching up on the whole "Mad Men"
craze, and watched an episode last night. I'm fascinated by it as it has shadows of David Lynch in its writing and directing and of course, it's about an advertising agency.
SO... about half way through my pre-DVR edit, a scene comes up where a certain "Mrs. Barrett" enters Draper's (main character - creative director at the agency). She is impetuous and flirt y. Blonde and wealthy. She announces she wants her "own tv show"... Draper asks her about it and she tells him the concept and
then announces the name of it... "Grin & Barrett"
... "I made it up myself."ORLY?
