In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
I did enjoy this episode. A lot. I have loved Parky forever and I adore David Tennant so it was pure bliss to sit back and watch the interview. David looked so gorgeous, it was a pity he wasn't edible, covered in chocolate and crunchy caramel biscuit-y bits! I thought he was very smoothly the Performer On Show, with a set of almost- prepared answers that he delivered engagingly, with his usual 200% actor's flair and conviction. Nothing was said that was not already common knowledge to the die-hard DT fan, and the ITV format for the show - 4 guests? WHY??
seemed to constrain Parky as well, who imo seemed well below par,
even a tiny bit tetchy with the vocal DT fans in the audience. So while I loved the episode and enjoyed it, I don't think MP gave it best shot, for which I blame the more commercial format of the show; and DT imo had elected not to engage in a Tell All expose, which, given the out-of-control celeb culture in the UK and elsewhere, is probably extremely sane of him.
