The major news story of the day is,of course, that the fake Mad Men Twitterers have returned.
There's no question that Don Draper is the alpha male - and who wouldn't go for him?- but I confess that I am torn between my equal attraction for the good (but flawed) Harry Crane and the bad Jimmy Barrett.It's the male version of the madonna-whore conundrum. Who will be by favorite?
This is just like when I had to choose between Paul (the Cute Beatle) and John (the Intellectual Beatle). I tired to remove myself from the stress of trying to decide by selecting George (the Quiet Beatle), but after a while, I gave it up and in the end I could not deny my attraction to the dark John.
So, Harry Crane. So contained, so sincere, so lovable. But Jimmy Barrett is a character evocative of the Rat Pack at its worst. It's dangerous to even be in a room with him, let alone to declare his power over you. It's most likely that this is a short -term role, but hey - why, not have a little thrill while it lasts?
I like 'em dark, moody,unpredictable and a little bit dangerous.
