Great analysis as always! I just finished watching an episode of Love from Netflix and I wondered if y'all considered creating videos about that show? I think it would be interesting because the show is wonderful in so many ways. Keep up the great work! 👍😁

I love your analysis. Have you ever considered doing the same for Fargo, all 3 seasons? Best show on TV since Breaking Bad IMO.
Stefan Söder (4 days ago)
Roger Sterling is the best, most interesting and most complex character in TV history!

So what type of company are we going to be?... The kind where everyone has a summerhouse! That's some ish I would have said lmao

I love Roger Sterling. Just hilarious. I only wish there were more of him. I would like a compilation of all of his zingers in the show. I think he's my spirit animal but I dont know what that says about me.😀

The paradox of marketing... you just got done telling us how misguided roger sterling is, and then try to sell us a watch that he would approve of lmao
Maria Regina (8 days ago)
Roger's not the last Sterling. He has a son with Joan. He's not legitimate but he's still obviously Roger's son.

Your analysis overlooks a couple of important facts. Roger suffers a couple of heart attacks early in the series which leads to Don’s being elevated in the business. He’s dealing with his fear of death by way of his outrageous behaviour.
Tim Power (18 days ago)
An amazing performance. He got the best lines of any character in the show. It also knocked his smug, silver spooned ass down a peg at every chance.

It's funny how whenever they say "the world" and "history" they mean European world and European history.

Martha Angulo Ríos (1 month ago)
Amazing analysis! The best so far from Mad Men. This is a show you can watch two or three times in a row and enjoy every episode. The way it portrait the human condition, makes that you can relate with every character in some way or another.

i love this review of the characters of mad men, they arent perfect, but quite complex, and i love the couples on the show, don is the best with betty, roger and joan have amazing chemistry, and ill have to see who peggy ends up with

Never watched mad men.....just couldn't relate and had nothing to offer me as far something I'd want to see
Mike Morgan (2 months ago)
Okkkk……. This is why women never get men. They think we're women. Roger sterling is at the top of his game. He fends off the competition as best he can but doesn't let it get in the way of having a good time. He's happy, not at all morose and pretty easy going. That's all.

Roger was roughly 42-43 years when the series began and roughly 10 years older when it ended. I'm supposed to believe that he is a character "in decline". If so, his decline was definitely premature.
FourthDerivative (2 months ago)
A video about the decline of wealth and privilege, sponsored by a luxury watch brand. Ironic.
In the vein of Kiki and Millennial Starving Artists....can you do one about The Little Mermaid and Millennials going out into the world and achieving their own paths?

Michelle Stewart (2 months ago)
Roger has a certain humility, self-awareness and core of basic goodness... he could easily be abusive, exploitative, etc., but he's not... and even his ex-wife continues to love and care about him (in a self-respecting, healthy way), and vice versa... as does Joan... as does his daughter... and he's clearly a doting grandfather... That really says a lot in his favor. Having known a few people with both inherited and self-attained wealth/power, I consider Roger, while clearly flawed, as valiant and admirable in his own way as our beloved antihero, Don.
ZoSo221 (2 months ago)
Wasn't roger a ww2 pacific vet? So saying he had no hardship or had everything given to him is a bit silly

Cynical and hilarious. I love Roger.

After 15 minutes telling us how meaningless, shallow and unfulfilling Roger's materialism is...you put on an ad for a 'Roger approved' luxury watch? Hilariously cringey irony.

But Roger fathered Joan's little son. Margaret is not his only filial legacy.

I was a little disappointed that Roger was a racist, but l still love the character. He's total old school. He seems to be flailing and it gets closer to 1970.
Alannah Kathleen (2 months ago)
Could you please do an analysis on every woman Don as been with? It would be so interesting to see their significance
bathasleftthecave (2 months ago)
"...and whether privileged does intangible harm to a person. But before we go on... this episode is brought to you by a luxury watch brand" haha. Apart from that ironic chuckle, another great episode of this series.
goodgirl140 (2 months ago)
I love Roger. I always felt he had this effervescent quality about him, that he genuinely revelled in all the money and glamour. But he also realized that it couldn't buy his happiness, so the stresses of the company didn't get to him like other characters trying to claw their way up the ladder.
Taylor Watson (2 months ago)
Sterling didn’t serve in Europe. He was a navy man (most likely an officer given his family connections) in the pacific theatre, fighting the Japanese. He’s references the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa throughout the series.

Roger wasn’t racist. He just didn’t like people
andromedastar (2 months ago)
Oh he definitely was, but it wasn't out of malice. It was the time and circumstances he grew up in and lived in, he really didn't know any better.

We are watch people who were in their 30s in the 60s and 70s. In real time today they would be in their 90s going on a 100. So disappointing.

Roger needed to die out. Like all the rest of the overprivileged, bigoted idiots of his ilk who make the mainstream media irritating and unbearable. 🙄
Luke Dodson (3 months ago)
I think the best physical symbol of Roger's arc is the decor of his office. From the classic wealthy executive look early in the show, to the trippy mod-mess of his midlife crisis, to his office at the end of the show. It's essentially an empty room with a small table facing the window. It's the office of a man who is just fucking over it all.

Roger reminds me of people in my family who were in various wars, like WW2.

Roger Sterling was my fav male character in this show (I just couldn't stand Don) even with all his faults (but in this era it was almost inevitable) he's a classy and pleasant man

BrandBlast (3 months ago)
I've noticed a trend with these analysis videos - every one (that I've watched) which is 4-5; seems to revolve around 'white privilege'. I'd work on that a bit with the coming videos - not everything is reduced down to a figment of one's imagination.
HerrNilssonTheMonkey (1 month ago)
Actually that's the main theme of the show according to the show's creator. But of course you know better.
K W (3 months ago)
Roger and Joan never ended up together because he never actually loved her and didn't come to respect her until much further along in the series. This is made clear when he tells Joan the thing he'll always remember about her is that she was "the best piece of @ss he had ever had." I think Joan actually loved Roger and she thought that he loved her too in his own way and that's why it was such a blow when he left Mona for Jane and not her. Still great piece! I thought you would talk a bit more about Roger's immaturity but it's implied based on what you chose to highlight.

Roger is portrayed as carefree about spending his wealth. In the real world people with so much are stingy and cheap, more so than people of average means.

Watches trying to be "Luxury Watches" via a YouTube video endorsement... on a video about people who would make fun of the watch company's marketing department for doing that. Gold.

Roger Sterling had "affluenza"
Henry TheGreatAmerican (4 months ago)
I didn't really pity him until he finally realizes he has no son with his family name. The STERLING family name will die with Roger. The only real son he had was with Joan, but that kid will not have the last name STERLING. That's why he agreed to leave his fortune with the boy he had with Joan.

You guys should do one on Sally and Megan.

Please do one on Trudie! She is one of my fav characters. I wish she was on​ the show more.

If these guys are supposed to be such masters of the universe, then why are they always drinking crap like Smirnoff and Canadian Club?
