Mad Men: The End of the Season

It’s impossible to gauge the effect of change without seeing its impact. Which is another way of saying I’ve been busy, so I’m jamming impressions of the last three episodes of Mad Men into one jammed post. — This season ended by telescoping in on Don. We knew how he was reacting to the social changes around him — he was turning off Beatles records and trying to convince the Rolling Stones to appear in one of his commercials. If social networks existed in the 1966 of Mad Men, Don would be saying things like, “Why is Ginsburg always on The Facebook?” Don lost Peggy, mostly of his own doing, when she...

Mad Men: Tea Leaves OR Oh Shit, Betty’s Back...

Now we know why Betty wasn’t on camera for the season premiere. They needed to find a wide angle lens. *ba dum bum* (And before I get a bunch of angry comments from people who can’t believe my insensitivity about women’s body image issues, let me be clear. IT. WAS....

Mad Men: A Little Kiss

For anyone who says that America doesn’t have a fine sense of irony — I’m looking at you, England — consider Mad Men. In an age of video streamery and digital recording magickery, which turn commercial breaks into fast forward moments, we held our collective...
