Like "Trust Me", this show is a behind the scenes look at the drama that goes on inside advertising agencies during those critical pitches. Speaking as someone who's familiar with the industry, I have to say that it's quite novel to look at the processes behind the work in these agencies, especially when one considers that some of them are or have been heavy-hitters. It's quite enlightening to see that even these so-called rockstars can get it wrong from time to time.
For those folks who've never been exposed to the inner workings of advertising, it may seem a little daunting and even somewhat crazy. That said, the human interest and personality dynamics stories that take place around the advertising action do much to add an extra dimension to the show. Of course, there's the "play-along" element too and you'll find yourself thinking along with the agencies about the ideas for the campaigns.
It won't make you think deeper about the plethora of ads you see but due to the very fact that the subject is about the volatile world of the commercial creative, there's always a facepalm or a WTF moment in every episode. I totally recommend giving it a shot if you get the chance (and pick up Trust Me too).… Expand
