Our old friend Marcel the Shell with shoes on is back! And he’s got a bunch of new things to tell us, about how he travels (by bug), where he sleeps (in a slice of bread) and what he’d like his nickname to be (Ace, of course). Marcel happily illuminates life on the small side of things: “Guess why the bus isn’t running?” he queries. “Because the bus is a caterpillar and it threw up!” [YouTube]

“I do know how the whole show ends … It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn’t mean Don’s gonna die. What I’m looking for, and how I hope to end the show, is like … It’s 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now. I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you. It’s a very tall order, but I always talk about ‘Abbey Road.’ What’s the song at the end of ‘Abbey Road?’ It’s called ‘The End.’ There is a culmination of an experience of people working at their highest level. And all I want to do is not wear out the welcome. I was 35 when I wrote the ‘Mad Men’ pilot, 42 when I got to make it, and I’ll be 50 when it goes off the air. So that’s what you’re gonna get. Do I know everything that’s gonna happen? No, I don’t. But I just want it to be entertaining, and I want people to remember it fondly and not think it ended in a fart.”

Matthew Weiner on the denouement of “Mad Men“‘s final season. Maybe I misinterpreted his quote, but it sounds like we’re going to get to see Don Draper, present day, in the nursing home and find out what became of him and all the other characters. I’ll bet he’ll still be a hot, whiskey drinking womanizer at age 84. I need it now! [Grantland]

11 Lady TV Characters That Don’t Make Us Want To Die Inside

We’ve already discussed how there are too few women writing for TV and movies, and how that makes it challenging to find worthwhile women to watch. Even when there are women on television, they’re often the kind of cloying and annoying characters that make too many compromises, or are possessed with stereotypical flaws that allow them to be palatable to viewers at home (Liz Lemon, I’m looking at you). Or worse, they serve as simply foils or disposable love interests for the show’s male protagonists.

So it’s refreshing when there’s actually a smart, well-written, complex female character on a show. Here are 11 of our favorites (plus an honorable mention). But listen, we can’t watch all the TV (we’ve tried, trust us, we’ve tried). So we’re looking to you to tell us what lady characters don’t make you want to wretch. Tell us in the comments.

This French Bulldog pup is more excited than anything about his new BFF, a New York City police horse. The horse is all, “Whatever, aren’t you a tiny, weird, jumpy thing.” But it’s still cute to see this dog and horse touch noses and such. [YouTube]

Hot Links: Better Names For Bella’s Baby & Why Women (Supposedly) Don’t Like Nice Guys

  • The name of Bella’s baby in “Breaking Dawn” is “Renesmee,” a mashup of Bella’s mom’s name (Renee) and Edward’s “mom”‘s name (Esme). It is also stupid and really awkward to actually say. So here are 20 better baby names, not that there’s any changing it at this point. [The Stir]
  • This is my worst nightmare: a 17-year-old dog named Basie went missing from her owner’s backyard, so the family searched high and low and posted fliers all around their neighborhood. The next day, they found out Basie had been found, mistaken for a stray, brought to an animal hospital, and euthanized two hours later. How on earth this happened, I don’t know, but I am going home to hug the crap out of my dog Lucca. So sad. [The Stir]

Little Girl Gives Her Doberman A Pawdicure

Who says a bad ass dog like a doberman can’t also get his nails did? Sometimes pups need a little pampering! (Or at least that’s what Lucca tells me every time she demands a massage.) And I concur with Jessica at The Gloss who sees a deeper message in this photo currently making the rounds on the internet. “This is a big f*k you to people who like to insist that certain breeds of dogs are naturally inclined to be vicious,” she writes. “Dobermans were the pit bulls of the 1990s, and yet here’s one exhibiting more patience with a child than a lot of adult humans would have.” So true. The smudges on my most recent mani are evidence of that. [The Gloss]
