First Mad Men, now this?

Opening an email from my friendly neighborhood Banana Republic chain, I am greeted by this:




Why, it's Claire Fisher and Ted Fairwell, the young lovers we learn in the last episode of Six Feet Under (spoiler alert) will eventually marry and live happily ever after!

I can't quite believe that BR went to the trouble to get Lauren Ambrose and Chris Messina for this ad, given that the series last aired in 2005 and the characters (not to mention the actors) are no where near universally recognizable. But I love them, as I do the Mad Men characters, and I think BR may totally have my number. If I didn't have a big ole pregnant belly right now I'd be totally tempted to use their 20% off offer just because they acknowledged my somewhat obscure TV tastes.

I really miss that Claire Fisher. And Ted, what a guy . . .

I recently went to see Julie and Julia and couldn't figure out why/how I knew the husband character, but I knew I had warm feelings for him! I totally forgot he was on Six Feet Under. Congrats on the pregnancy (I am halfway through myself).

I wouldn't have known who those two were, but I am officially out of the loop. Just today someone asked me if I watched some vampire show on HBO. I don't get any pay channels, but I didnt want to sound self- righteous for once so I just said I don't watch it. Congrats on the future media scholar. Perhaps your top commenters could help you pick a name.
