    A fun show, but where, oh where is all this heading?
  2. Trust Me, a TNT series set in a Chicago advertising agency, is clever and likeable.

    Trust Me is a neat spin on this ancient tradition--and in fact, I shall grandly state that it is, in both its lovable and off-putting elements, a workplace drama for our time.

    The show is a modern Mad Men, but without the mystery or the allure. Trust Me all too often feels like going to work.

    This is an hour-long drama trying to cross Mad Men with Aaron Sorkin-style walk-and-talk dialogue. It’s a clever concept that curdles with cutesy self-consciousness.

    The series isn't bad. It just isn't all that good.

    Trust Me shares another characteristic of those series("Nip/Tuck" and "Mad Men": dumb, numbing soullessness. It has the emotional intricacy of a Ritz cracker.

    Best show on TNT. A nice break from all the Cop drama. Better than Mad Men IMHO.

    The series is almost watchable with the glaring exception of Tom Cavanaugh's portrayal of Connor. In a word, he is TERRIBLE, completely unbelievable as the "rebel copywriter." He's too old and too whimpy. A few other characters are pros -e.g. the agency CEO. I tried FFing through Cavanaugh scenes but there are too many. Expand

    There was nothing positive about this show. It was long and drawn out.

    This feels like a show written by ad guys. Not by guys who know how to write long format. There's no reason for me to connect with these characters either, where as in Mad Men, the characters deal with universal truths and struggles. Mad Men is less about advertising and more about the psychology of a man/men and woman/women in the late '50's - early '60's. I hate the characters in Trust Me because there's nothing real about them. Even jerks have something inside that makes them that way. These guys are just acting. And maybe the one thing we hate worse than ad guys are actors pretending to be be ad guys and not coming across as believable. Expand
