The announcement of Fargo, the series caused consternation - why besmirch the legacy of a much-loved Coen brothers classic? And on the surface, it seems like a pointless exercise - same nebbishy lead, same supporting cast of criminal misfits, same frozen location. Another bleakly comic, snow-sunk Midwestern gothic. But the antic morality at the centre of the Coens' original film is more or less absent. Instead, we're dealing with something closer to the reigning spirit of today's TV drama - violence, nihilism, and a whole lot of anti-heroic behavior. This might be because the TV format provides fewer opportunities for the Coen's trademark narrative non-sequiturs, as every seemingly superfluous detail is a possible lead for a future twist.
Since this is only Season 1, we don't really have to worry about that stuff just yet. It's enough to just sit back and marvel at the well-wrought drama of each episode. The characters are compellingly drawn, on the thrilling border between verisimilitude and caricature, especially Billy Bob Thornton's Lorne Malvo. ("There are no saints in the animal kingdom," he says, "just breakfast and dinner.") In fact, the most pertinent Coen comparison isn't with Fargo - it's with No Country For Old Men, their 2007 Cormac McCarthy adaptation. We wait on tenterhooks for a second season that's set to rival Breaking Bad.
In the first half of its final season, Mad Men’s future finally arrives. It’s been the show’s guiding tension since the very first episode – when will the 1960s hit? And not just the rock music, drugs and tie-dyes, the familiar countercultural wallpaper of representations of that era; the 1960s was also the decade of One-Dimensional Man and ‘The Medium Is The Message,’ the birth pangs of both today’s corporate advertising culture and its discontents.
Thus, in Season 7, a computer finally arrives in the office. Copywriter Michael Ginsberg is threatened by its static, humming efficiency, and loses his marbles in the time-honoured white collar way. Peggy and Don are in competition for the position of alpha personality, a gender dynamic unimaginable in Season 1, and Dawn Chambers, the show’s first major black character, is promoted to personnel director.
Like Leopold Bloom, another ad man, Don Draper is privileged to be perched on a protagonist’s plateau, watching the world below transform itself. But he lacks the crucial self-awareness to follow through, and his appetites degrade, rather than enrich, his experience. By Season 7, even Draper’s mentor Roger Stirling has outstripped him, and the toxic comforts of fat has-beendom are beckoning. It’s up to the second half of Season 7 to show us whether or not he’ll catch up with the world.
