The Draper/McNulty/White Conundrum


The elements of your personality that make you good at your job make you bad at everything else.

Every compelling cable show of the past ten years has pretty much been a study on the sociopathy of the modern man, and all the other stuff, from meth to serial killing to mobbin’ to advertising, has been interchangeable symbols and metaphors.
