Is it just me, or has this season of “Mad Men” been so depressing? Well written and smart, as always, but just dire. Six seasons in, Don Draper is still the same unfaithful cad that he’s always been, seemingly incapable of evolving. I used to have so much empathy in my heart for Don, but after last night’s episode, I think he might just be among the most interesting but irredeemable characters on TV — which puts him in good company, alongside Tony Soprano, Walter White, and Dexter Morgan. There was plenty of firm biz in this episode (it’s Don vs. Peggy in the battle for Ketchup!), but let’s focus on the juicier stuff… Keep reading »

This post contains spoilers!

Sunday nights are no longer full of Monday dread. I have something to look forward to at the very end of the weekend: a mind-bending episode of “Mad Men.” The show you love, full of characters you hate, and issues you hope to only deal with through barrier of your TV screen: infidelity, corporate hell, violence, and mortality.

For an office drama centered around a 1960s advertising agency, “Mad Men” has tackled very nuanced issues that remain relevant topics in our day and age. Anyone who watches the show knows the terrible way that women are treated: sexual harassment, rape, sexism, domestic violence, infidelity. And as of Sunday, all of the major female characters have experienced pregnancy. Keep reading »

Janie Bryant has a tough job. For the past several years, she’s worked tirelessly as “Mad Men”‘s costume designer, giving the ad execs, wives and mistresses of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and now Holloway) the perfect looks to represent their characters and the different eras of the show. That means switching from the remnants of ’50s fashion in “Mad Men”‘s early seasons to its latest incarnation — the beginnings of the horrible synthetic fabric and polyester pantsuits of the late ’60s and early ’70s. From Don Draper’s perfectly cut gray wool suits or Joan Holloway’s cleavage-bearing biz wear, Bryant’s contributions as costume designer are what make the show feel so authentic.

With taste that impeccable, you just know Bryant and her husband Peter must live in one heck of a great house. And they do. Elle Decor recently caught up with the couple and their poodle Lucie, for a quick but sweet tour of their Los Angeles home. You should definitely check out the whole thing, but in the meantime, we’ve picked a few of our favorite rooms after the jump. Keep reading »

WTF, Betty?

“Mad Men” is back and the Draper family is still as fucked up as ever. I won’t spoil Don’s heap of neuroses (oh, they still exist), but we need to talk about Betty Draper Francis:

During a weird moment last night in bed with her husband Henry, Betty started to dirty talk. Only it was this passive aggressive, creepy, really inappropriate dirty talk about how Henry might want to rape Sally’s 15-year-old friend, Sandy, who was sleeping in the next room. Spoilers after the jump…

Are you a Joan? A Peggy? Or maybe you're a Trudy. Read More »

Dating sucks, even when you’ve got the streetwise wisdom and looks of Joan Holloway.  From Roger Sterling to Greg the rapey doctor to her will-they-or-won’t-they? moments with Don Draper, we’ve watched Joan fight like a lioness on her hunt for love. And, man, has she had to! I know I’ve watched “Mad Men” over the years and been consoled at the thought, Well, if even Joan gets wrapped up in relationship drama … 

Joan gets a lot of one-liners on the show. Some of those zingers are about sex and dating, but others are dating tips that are good for anybody if you read them the right way. Fix yourself a stiff drink and find out what Joanie has to say has to say about your love life!

Elisabeth Moss Plays “F**k, Marry, Kill” With The Men Of Sterling Cooper

  • In the new issue of GQ, “Mad Men”‘s Elisabeth Moss played “Fuck, Marry, Kill” with the men of Sterling Cooper. My guess is that she would kill Pete Campbell, because who wouldn’t if they got the chance, but it’s a toss up as to who she would fuck and who she would marry out of Don and Roger… [The Gloss]

"Mad Men" Season Six Trailer

We’ve paid our respects to Megan Draper’s sky-high new ’60s hairdo. We’ve pondered what Don Draper and Megan are doing on a beach in Hawaii. We’ve stared at pictures of Jon Hamm’s trouser snake struggling to break free. Now all that’s left before “Mad Men” season six’s two-hour April 7th premiere is, you know, an actual trailer. You’re in luck! Except not really, because Matt Weiner is an asshole and he tells us practically nothing about what’s going on … only that Don still isn’t happy.  [Vanity Fair]

My only real criteria for a successful mashup is that the two things being smooshed together are things I really like. So, yeah, “Mad Men” meets “Mean Girls”? Why the hell not! Mean Mad Men is a new Tumblr that combines “Mad Men” screenshots with memorable “Mean Girls” quotes. Somehow, they go together like Lindsay Lohan and an abandoned bag of cocaine or Don Draper and a life full of regret. Check out a few more after the jump! [Mean Mad Men] Keep reading »
