Pick-Up Artists: Mystery Vs. Don Draper

Over the weekend, on “Saturday Night Live”, Don Draper, er, Jon Hamm, did a hilarious sketch with dating advice based on his irresistible “Mad Men” character’s mad skills. But he’s not the only one with advice on how to lure women to your love shack. ”The Pick Up Artist” is back on VH1 and Season 2 features yet another flock of dudes, including a 45-year-old virgin, who worship the game playin’ guru with guyliner. While women go weak in the knees for Draper’s charms, men seem to think Mystery has the answer to getting into panties. So, let’s compare their tricks of the trade and see how they score!

Don Draper’s Guide To Picking Up Women

Last night, my boyfriend, I mean, Jon Hamm (Don Draper on “Mad Men”) hosted “Saturday Night Live” — he was actually very, very funny! He IS perfect. Sigh. Anyway, in the skit above, Don Draper delivers his “Guide To Picking Up Women”. Quite honestly, this would work on me. Full transcript, after the jump. Keep reading »

Mad Men: Don Draper’s Lost Weekend In Palm Springs

Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” gave viewers a much needed change of scenery — Don Draper and Pete Campbell flew out of Los Angeles to meet with various airline executives in pursuit of new business. But while Pete devoted his time to the task at hand, Draper took off for Palm Springs with a mysterious 21-year-old woman and band of pretentious, bohemian, and decidedly wealthy nomad friends. Don seemed to be incredibly intrigued by the laissez faire attitude of his latest conquest (yes, they did sleep together — so much for Don remaining faithful to his marriage) probably because she lives the kind of responsibility-free life that he kinda, sorta craves. It was fun to see the way L.A. was in the early ’60s, the bright sunshine of the poolside atmosphere a welcome change from the greyness of the Sterling Cooper offices. Also, Don Draper looks hot in sunglasses. Next week, it definitely seems like Don is going on a bit of a mission, taking time off from work to pursue something, or someone — there’s been a lot of questions surrounding what Don’s life was like as Dick Whitman. Might there be a love child out there? Keep reading »

Mad Men: Don Draper, You Are So BUSTED

I missed Peggy this week. Our favorite glass ceiling breaker took much of this week’s episode of Mad Men off and the episode, instead, focused on new assistant Jane, Don Draper’s new car (to replace the one he crashed when he was drunk driving with Bobbie Barrett), and Cooper’s new Mark Rothko painting. Needless to say, it was an odd episode. Read on to find out about Jane’s complete and total insubordination and Jimmy Barrett’s big reveal to Betty Draper… Keep reading »

    Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

    Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling Cooper works on putting together a new ad campaign for Playtex, centered around every woman have a Jackie (Kennedy) side and a Marilyn (Monroe) side — for the record, according to the boys, Peggy is all Gertrude Stein — Don is in way too deep with Bobbie Barrett. Don is not immune to viewing women through these two lenses as well — while he’s happy to have Bobbie as his whore on the side, when Betty buys a chic new bikini to wear at the pool, Don is quick to demean her as “desperate”. Both sides of Amelia wanted to smack the s–t out of him for that one. Keep reading »

    Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

    Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we learned Pete’s spunk was just as potent as ever. Oh, and Peggy is our hero. Keep reading »

    Crushes As Foreplay

    Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing in those bulbs, telling me all about going to school in Dublin and spending the summer in New York, I felt enormously guilty. My fiancé wasn’t home and this attractive, foreign, younger man was doing menial labor in my apartment, steps away from my bedroom. It felt kind of like cheating, even though it was far from it in actuality, and cheating in actuality is something I would never, ever, ever do. Keep reading »

    How Do We Still Love You, Don Draper?

    The same week John Edwards admitted to cheating on his wife with Rielle Hunter, Mad Men‘s Don Draper lost his (short) battle NOT to cheat on his wife. The comparisons are easy, if shallow — both dashing, charming, well-manicured, with wives that ooze kindness, morality, loyalty, and selfless struggle. While John Edwards does not have the luxury of his affair being fictional, Don Draper, nevertheless, remains at the top of our “Most Boinkable on TV” list. But how is it that we still have such a girl-boner for a character who not only cheats on wife, but also just had one of the more sinister moments we’ve seen on TV? Keep reading »
