Unlike fiction, which you create before you go into production, with reality you kind of create it after everything is produced. The drama and the storytelling is really done in post.
What happens on 'Mad Men' in terms of the acting and the writing and the directing, it's superior. And yes, it has tremendous cache and buzz because it's become iconic, but it also deserves all the kudos and the awards as well, because it's a beautiful show to look at.

Comments on: "Kurt Sutter Quotes: What happens on 'Mad Men' in terms of the acting and the writing..."
The trap in Hamlet is he’s the most passive of Shakespeare’s characters. He’s not a Richard III, not out there taking a lot of action. It’s a lot of asides and soliloquies where he’s wrapped in angst, and that’s not a very interesting character.
Never in the history of ‘The Shield’ was the word ‘LAPD’ ever mentioned. We would mention districts, like Wilshire and Hollenbeck and Marina, but Farmington was a fictitious district, and we never actually uttered the word ‘LAPD.’ So that was sort of the deal we made with them.
I’ve made a career writing about fictitious anti-heroes. To create these worlds, I’ve spent a lot of time with active members on both sides of the law. And if I had to pick the most interesting of the two, the choice is obvious – we all love the guys in black.
I’m drawn to the classic antihero, the guy who’s probably made a bunch of mistakes and really has the capacity to go either way. That’s the most interesting type of character for me to watch, to see what decisions they’ll make. There’s a lot of gray area there for a writer to explore.
