When Did Peggy Olson Become “Mad Men”‘s Resident A-Hole?

Sigh. Well, I suppose in some ways, it was bound to happen. At the end of “Mad Men”‘s last season, Peggy Olson took a seat in Don Draper’s recently vacated chair (him having been given a leave of absence), gazing upon her new office in a pose that recalled his from season one. The implication wa…

Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” Is My New Summer Jam

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.

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 i…

For The Love Of Pete Campbell, What Happened To Vincent Kartheiser’s Hairline?

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…

Watch Another Vague “Mad Men” Teaser!

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,…

Here’s What “Mad Men” Would Be Like If All The Cigarettes Were Replaced By Party Blowers

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…

“Mad Men”‘s Kiernan Shipka Is A Riot Grrrl

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?

If you made it through “Game Of Thrones” last night and still had the emotional stamina to watch “Mad Men,” you were at least rewarded with an amazing Joan Holloway episode.

7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore.

5 Things I Learned From Last Night’s “Mad Men” Episode

With the merging companies, there is trouble, tension and transition everywhere. Merging clients and jobs, dealing with logistics of job security and office space — the office is in turmoil, and so is everyone’s life around it.

Separated At Birth? Sarah Polley & Elisabeth Moss

Yesterday, I looked at the picture on the left, of actress/director Sarah Polley, and thought, It’s Peggy from “Mad Men.” So then I looked up pictures of Elisabeth Moss, who plays Peggy. And while they may not look exactly alike, they do sort of resemble each other, don’t you think?

What “Mad Men” Characters Would Look Like Today

Remember at the beginning of season two of “Mad Men” when Don went to visit the doctor for an insurance physical? The doctor told him that he “lives too hard” and then told him to take it easy. So what did Don do next? Tucked down a full, high-cholesterol breakfast like a man.
