How Badly Do You Want These “Mad Men” Barbies?

"Mad Men" may be almost done for the season, but fret not! Here's a whole mess of "Mad Men"-inspired Barbie dolls to keep you entertained. No, Mattel hasn't suddenly sanctioned LSD and sex out of wedlock. Artist Michael Williams of MyLifeInPlastic.com dressed each and every one of these old Barbie and Ken dolls (plus a Skipper…

Christina Hendricks On Joan’s Rapey Ex-Husband

"Well, everyone knew [Joan's husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can't rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. ... It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking…

Okay, before you tell me I am totally reaching with this one, hear me out. The other day, after watching this week's episodes of "Mad Men" and "Girls," I was trolling Tumblr when I came across a post by Jenny Deluxe (who happens to write for The New York Times, so she obvs has a…

Debate This: Joan Holloway’s Choice To “Sleep Her Way To The Top” On “Mad Men”

Sunday night's episode of "Mad Men" was a climactic one, and possibly the best episode of the season. Peggy, fed up with being taken for granted by Don, landed a new job at a rival firm and resigned by Sterling Cooper Draper Price. Meanwhile, SCDP's deal with Jaguar seemingly hinges on Joan sleeping with a…

Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Pete Campbell & “Game Of Thrones”‘ Theon Greyjoy Are Kind Of The Same Person

I love Sunday night television. "Game of Thrones" with a "Mad Men" chaser, nothing is more satisfying! But in the last few weeks, I've noticed something. Theon Greyjoy on "Game of Thrones" is basically the Pete Campbell of Westeros. Think about it. Both are so pathetic you might feel sorry for them, if they weren't…

Watch All The Awesome Sunday Night TV In One 2-Minute Clip

Between "Game of Thrones," "Mad Men," "Girls," "Veep" and all the rest, it's impossible to watch all the good TV that airs on Sunday night. (I'd also include "Long Island Medium" in that, but nobody asked.) That's why the folks at Jest.com made this television mash-up which incorporates characters from all your fave Sunday night…

The Rise Of Weight Watchers In The 1960’s

This week on "Mad Men"'s "Dark Shadows" episode, Weight Watchers serves as a type of therapy for Betty Francis, who can definitely use it. Boredom, jealousy, and insecurity dominate Betty's life as a 1960s housewife on her second marriage, and she's turned to bags of Bugles to pass the time. Now determined to lose the…

“Mad Men” Creator Sheds Light On Don Draper’s S&M Sex Drive

"Don's relationship — and [the] women in his life's relationship[s] — between power and sex is very closely linked. And I think it's part of the human experience. I think it's an animal thing. Powerful men in particular seem to want to be controlled sexually. ... I think what you're seeing is that they do…

Girl Talk: In Defense Of Peggy Olsen’s Anonymous Hand Job

It happened so quickly, and it was so dark, that it was hard to tell what Peggy Olsen was doing in that movie theater. I texted a friend.  "Did Peggy just give a hand job to her boyfriend or a random man?" "It's hard to tell the way it was shot, but consensus says random,"…

“Mad Men”‘s Roger Sterling Drops Acid With “My So-Called Life”‘s Patty Chase

Last night's episode of "Mad Men" was weirdly awesome. Peggy gave a handjob in a dark movie theater (GIF after the jump!), Don tried to force Megan to enjoy Howard Johnson's orange sherbet (GIF after the jump!), and, as shown in the clip above, Roger Sterling dropped acid. And Patty Chase, the mom from "My…

Fat Betty Draper Gets Her Own Song

Normally I'd be peeved by a song about how fat a lady TV character has gotten. But I prefer to see this  "Fat Betty" song by SOUTH Music & Sound Design in another light: an ode to those of us who love our ice cream. Blam-a-blam! (Also, spoiler alert, if you are way behind o…

Teyonah Parris On Playing “Mad Men”‘s First Black Employee

"I know that this show hasn’t had an African-American in the office and I know that comes with a lot of responsibility as to how I portray this woman, but I can’t think about that. I can only go in and do what I think this woman would do. I try not to think, 'Oh,…

Evening Quickies: Why Do We Care So Much About Fat Betty?

Why do people care so much about that Betty Draper Francis has gotten fat in order to conceal actress January Jones' pregnancy on "Mad Men"? I know it's a shocking look for Betty, but people on the interwebs are really freaking out about it. [Personally, I just enjoy a fat suit. -- Editor] [Huffington Post] Darren Cri…

Zou Bisou Bisou: 10 Things To Know About “Mad Men”‘s Jessica Paré

Like most "Mad Men" fans, I was not sure about Don Draper boning, then abruptly marrying, his new secretary, Megan. I wasn't surprised he got under Megan's skirt so quickly, of course. But given Don record of getting the golden ticket and then discarding women, I puzzled over why he saw Megan as a keeper.

Watch Megan’s Rendition Of “Zou Bisou Bisou” On “Mad Men”

I'm not so into recapping shows, but let me just say this of last night's "Mad Men" season five premiere: I liked it! And what's more, I liked Megan, Don's former secretary and the new Mrs. Draper. Don's still f**ked in the head, of course, but Megan has a certain way with him that I…

John Slattery Has A Bobby Draper Problem

"Coincidentally, that kid doesn’t play Bobby Draper any more. Not because of what he said, but because … well, for other reasons. They’ve had about five Bobby Drapers and they can’t seem to find one who doesn’t look straight into the lens." --"Mad Men"'s amazing John Slattery on the proliferation of Bobby Drapers on the…

Where Are The Black Folks On “Mad Men”? Matt Weiner Explains

Forget for a second that every guest on "Charlie Rose," a PBS news program for wonks, looks like they're struggling to stay awake. The cast of "Mad Men" appeared last night with guest host Gayle King and she pressed the show's creator, Matt Weiner, with a good question: where are the black folks? "As you…
