Top Definition
Dramatic use of faux symbolism in which a show writer drops so many "symbols" that turn out to be red herrings that the characters themselves show disgust. The phrase itself references Season 5 of the popular American TV show "Mad Men" in which window symbolism was heavily employed throughout the season, ultimately culminating with a nude Roger Sterling literally mooning the audience in front of a large Manhattan apartment window.

Whereas Chekhov's gun dictates that objects, actors and actions should be used cleverly and for a reason, Weiner's window dictates that none of that matters. What does matter is the show writer's smugness and lack of empathy for the show's loyal fanbase.

An important distinctionbbetween Bay's helicopter and Weiner's window is that a work employing the former technique will actually be entertaining while the latter will not.
TV Critic 1: "Did you notice that color of Don Draper's vase is bright orange? It could symbolize 60s changing morality, the Beatles arriving at Shea Stadium, or sex."

TV Critic 2: "Or it could just be another fucking Weiner's window. I hate this fucking show. Let's watch Breaking Bad."
