It’s the final season of “Mad Men”. Ever! This means we only have one more season of looking at Don Draper. Frankly, this depresses me. To get through this scary time, let’s pay tribute to some of the very best Don Draper looks from seasons passed on College Candy…
Okay, okay, I get it, California, you want me to move back. I’m in! I’m game! And even if I wasn’t, the “Mad Men” premiere would have convinced me. It did not escape my notice that everyone at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Etc. Etc. Etc. is miserable except Pete Campbell, who has found a new zest for life after moving to Los Angeles. Seriously, I never thought I would say this, but California Pete is my spirit animal. “The city’s flat and ugly, and the air is brown, but I love the vibrations,” basically sums up the feelings coursing through me as I write this post from a hotel bed in Glendale. I’m also listening to Lana Del Rey’s new single, “West Coast,” which, if it wasn’t 45 years too late, would totally be Pete’s summer jam. Instead, it’s mine. Listen above!
At long last, the final season of “Mad Men” is upon us. It’s been almost a year since we last saw the ad men (and women) at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Cutler, Gleason and Chaough, but that’s quite a mouthful), and we hope tonight’s premiere provides answers to all of questions left unanswered in the last season’s finale.
Like, what will Don Draper do now that he’s on forced sabbatical from the agency? Will Sally ever get recover from walking in on her father schtupping Mrs. Rosen? Is Bob Benson really gay? Or a spy? Or both? How far back has Pete Campbell’s hairline receded? (Oh, wait. We know the answer to that one.)
So, ignore that last question. Concerning everything else: FANS NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS! AND BEFORE PETE’S WIDOW’S PEAK GETS ANY MORE TERRIFYING!
After watching the first season of “The Writer’s Room” on Netflix, I think I’m more than qualified to present the following hypothetical plot points and storylines for the Season 7 finale, airing this Sunday, April 13 at 10/9c on AMC. Some are probably more plausible than others, but I the show is known for its twists; so, really, anything’s possible, right?
Beware: Spoilers ahead. Try not to trip. Keep reading »
The seventh and final season of “Mad Men” starts tonight at 10/9C on AMC. The cast and writers have been tight-lipped about what’ll happen this season, but it’s fun to guess. Will our predictions earn us a BINGO? Let’s play!
Vincent Kartheiser, who plays “Mad Men”‘s smarmy Pete Campbell, showed up the show’s season seven premiere with an interesting new look. Talk about committing to his craft! I’m assuming, of course, that Vincent shaved a receding hairline into his scalp (which appears to be growing out) for a role — perhaps Pete is starting to lose his hair? Maybe Vincent is playing a Hare Krishna in an upcoming film? I don’t know, but I am mesmerized. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the latest teaser for “Mad Men”‘s seventh and final season doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what to expect. After all, this is the show that teases each upcoming episode with a series of unrelated soundbites taken out of any discernible context. But whatever! Everyone — Don, Betty, Peggy, Megan, Roger, THE WHOLE GANG — is at the airport, flying in the brightest, craziest, tackiest styles of the era. (Cool daisy pin, Peggy.) Are they going or coming? Is this a metaphor? April 13 can’t get here soon enough. [NYMag.com]
“Of course I’m a feminist … if you’re not for the equal treatment of men and women, then you’re a fascist.”
Yup, what Jessica Paré said. See, I knew there was a reason I loved Canadians. (Also, those earrings are insane.) [Fashion Magazine]
What is Photoshop for other than to create nonsense? At least this nonsense is for a good cause. To mark Thursday’s Great American Smoke Out, a national day to quit smoking, Ellen DeGeneres took some “Mad Men” clips, removed all references to smoking and replaced them with party blowers. Don Draper would have been a hell of a lot less mercurial with party blowers! Slightly more annoying, though. [Ellen TV]
Well, this photo sure does fill me with joy. Kiernan Shipka — best known as Sally Draper on “Mad Men” — may only be 13 years old, and thus not alive when riot grrrl was in its hey day, but its influence lives on. I wonder what she’s listening to on her iPod. Bikini Kill? L7? Hole? Bratmobile? Soooo many badass possibilities. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Update: Want Kiernan’s Riot Grrrl T-shirt for yourself? I found it!
