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.
This aired back in the age of blank videotapes being $25 each--after taxes being taken out, over a day's pay for me. So my one $25 videotape was used for time-shifting only. I recorded this to watch later, but couldn't keep it. I regret it to this day. One solid hour of Richard Kiley reciting poetry. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. One of the poems, I recall, was a poem I'd never heard of, Theodore Spencer's "The Circus; or One View of It." I transcribed it before erasing the tape. Kiley so perfectly captured the carousel rhythm of the verses.
I can't imagine something like this being on now. It doesn't have enough "action."
