Marian Bantjes new work looks pretty awesome. The above is burnt wood.

Big Brother US S10E07 (CBS)

Keesha feels that Angie is responsible for getting Steven out.

Big Brother US S10E06 (CBS)

Steven tells Dan that he tried to keep both of them here, but it didn’t work out. He tells Dan as much. Dan hopes that during the course of Steven’s campaigning, he will dig himself a hole.

Steven has a talk with Ollie, April, Keesha and Libra. He makes a last ditch appeal to them. He offers an alliance to them. Will it be enough?

Big Brother UK S09D54 (Channel 4)

Yesterday, Stu took power as HOH. The runners up Mikey, Rex, and Mo joined him in heaven. The other HM are in hell.

Big Brother UK S09D53 (Channel 4)

Darnell is in the diary room. He’s going on about how this was a big accomplishment for him. What a dick! He says that he will be different person.

Rex says that he would never take public transport. Mikey says that he’s always on public transport. Mikey is the archetypical angry blind person, who swears a lot. It’s pretty funny.

Mad Men For Those Who Think Young S02E01 (AMC)

Mad Men is a American TV show on the cable network AMC. It was created by Matthew Weiner, best known for working on The Sopranos.

Mad Men follows the life of Don Draper, a self-made ad-man in Manhattan. He’s recently been made partner, after Roger Sterling, another partner, had a heart-attack. He’s got two children and a wife named Betty. Don is a womanizer, albeit not as blatant as a few other guys at the office. He always sees a girl on the side. The first half of the last season, he was seeing a girl name Midge. Later on, he became involved with Rachel Menken.

Don always tries to be discreet, but this actually caused some trouble. Rachel left at the end of last season on a cruise.

Don is an enigmatic man. He’s a man with no past. That’s because he was originally Dick Widman, the bastard child of a farmer and a prostitute. His mother died in childbirth and he went on to live a loveless life with his father, who died when he was 10.

Dick joined the army and took a new name when his lieutenant was killed. He reinvented himself since then.

Peggy Olsen is another main character. She started out as a secretary but has recently been made a junior copywriter with her own office. It’s almost unheard of in this office, which is dominated by men. Peggy had a bastard child last season, thanks to Pete, a junior exec at Sterling-Cooper, who has become jealous of her raw talent.

The show takes place in the 1960s. Misogyny, racism, sexism and other social issues are prevalent here. Mad Men doesn’t hide them. They actually are in your face, so it’s hard to forget that America used to be like that in the past. Everybody smokes and drinks in this show. It’s incredible that they manage to work as much drunk.

I managed to watch the episodes over the last few days. It was pretty entertaining.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

Mad Men The Wheel S01E13 (AMC)

Mad Men is a American TV show on the cable network AMC. It was created by Matthew Weiner, best known for working on The Sopranos.

For some reason I stopped watching the show after the 5th episode. Since the show has been renewed for a second season, and that second season premiered last Sunday, I felt obligated to watch the entire run. Well actually, I had planned on doing so. There are a couple of shows like that  I haven’t yet had the time to watch, like the last season of the 4400, second season of Big Love.

This episode starts slowly, but towards the end, the shit truly hits the fan. Roger has health problems and it pushes Don into Rachel’s arms once again. Midge is no longer in the picture, and he can’t find solace in the arms of his wife.

Cooper has to act fast so that they don’t lose any clients. He calls Joan to the office in the middle of the night.
