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?

“Mad Men” Recap: Joan Holloway Leans In

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.

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.

In last night's episode of "Mad Men," Megan Draper's saucy French-speaking minx of a mother was back in town, and she had some advice for Megan, whose distance from husband Don was all but obvious. "He may think you belong more to other people than he does to you," Marie…

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. There are…

“Mad Men” Recap: Joan Holloway Is The Queen Bee & Don Draper Is Officially Dead To Me

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…

“Mad Men”‘s Betty Draper Francis Dirty Talks About Rape And It Gets Weird

"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 wa…
