“Mad Men” Celebrates Christmas In August

Thanksgiving Day has passed and the “Mad Men” characters will celebrate Christmas in episode two of the fourth season. I’m not sure who Don Draper, Peggy Olson, and the rest are listening to, but it sure seems important and slightly laughable. [AMC] Keep reading »

And Now “Mad Men” Nail Polish

Mad Men” costume designer Janie Bryant wins my award for multitasking and branding this year. Not only is she extraordinary at outfitting the cast in ’60s-era fashions and designing a QVC line based on “Mad Men,” but she’s also adding nail polish to her growing to-do list. Bryant has partnered with Nailtini, a brand based in California, to create four limited-edition nail lacquers based on the hit show. She says she was inspired by the fabrics of the era, velvet, satins, and lamé — the stuff a glamorous cocktail dress is made of. The colors will be Bourbon Satin, a brown; French 75, a gold; Deauville, a platinum; and Stinger, an iridescence. The lacquers will retail for $14 each at CVS’ Beauty 360 and Duane Reade’s Look stores. All we need now are “Mad Men”-inspired foods and all of our senses will be touched by the show. “Mad Men” fever is now an epidemic! [WWD] Keep reading »

All About Matt Long, The Newest Ad Man On “Mad Men”

Was anyone else wondering about Joey Baird, Sterling Cooper Draper Price’s latest hire? You know, the cute, new copywriter doing all of that “John and Marsha” business with Peggy Olson? I did a little stalking research on the newest employee, uh, actor. After the jump, what we know about Matt Long of “Mad Men” so far. Keep reading »

“Mad Men” Trivia: Who The Heck Are John And Marsha?


Mad Men” is back with a freaking vengeance. I am going to skip over Don’s rough sex with a prostitute (amazing!), Sally Draper’s ‘tude toward her new step-dad (love her!), and Joan Holloway’s bodacious bod (HAWT!), and focus on all that “John and Marsha” business between Peggy Olson and new employee Joey. (How cute is he, by the way?) Was anyone else as lost as I was? I thought I was prepared for 1964 pop culture references since I had done my research, but alas I was as ignorant as ever. After the jump, “John and Marsha” explained. Keep reading »

What’s Up With The Rough Sex On “Mad Men” And “True Blood”?

Sure, “True Blood” and “Mad Men” don’t have a whole lot in common—”True Blood” is a fast-paced vampire dystopia that manages to be as sexy as it is gory, while “Mad Men” is a hyper-real slow burn about advertising dudes in the 1960s. And yet, these two shows are starting to be linked in my mind because they now air back-to-back on Sunday nights. But maybe these shows have more in common than meets the eye? Last night, there was a sex scene in “Mad Men” that reminded me a whole lot of that freaky Bill Compton moment on “True Blood” a few weeks ago. I’ll explain what I mean after the jump, for folks who haven’t had a chance to watch yet. Keep reading »

If “Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson Vlogged In 1964


Our girl Sara Benincasa does a lot of awesome impressions, but her Peggy Olson is so dead-on, it’s almost like the overachiever transported herself to 2010. In anticipation of tonight’s season four premiere of “Mad Men,” “Peggy” plopped herself down in front of her 1964 laptop and recorded a vlog on just what’s been going down at Sterling Cooper Draper Price since we last saw them. It seems everyone in the office is very preoccupied with little Sally Draper’s lisp … [YouTube] Keep reading »
