That’s right, it’s only Wednesday. HOW? Power through your midweek blues/exhaustion/neurosis with this impeccable mashup of Peggy Olson’s “Mad Men” ascension set to the tune of Drake’s “Stared From The Bottom.” I can do this, you can do this. WE CAN DO THIS. [The Cut]…

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…

Peggy Olson, You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

“Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson has really transformed from shy secretary in the next cubicle to a saucy little minx! She drinks, smokes weed, hangs out with lesbians, and strips naked to get the job done — and we love her for it. [Nerve]…

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 bee…

Peggy Olsen’s New Hair Is … Eww

Over the years, we’ve liked the way Peggy Olson’s style has progressed. Until now. Here is an image of her from the upcoming season, and it’s even more disappointing than the season’s teaser poster. Um, who attacked the girl with hairspray? And why so drab? Homegirl does not look good, which is a shame because…

Quote Of The Day: Elisabeth Moss On Playing Peggy Olson

““I love playing Peggy [Olson]. Finding the balance between playing her, finding new things, and not losing her, and constantly finding enough new stuff to keep her remaining herself … Playing her is an exercise in remaining simple, despite the fact that she is becoming more complicated. [She’s] not out to hurt anyone, she’s just…

(Another) Quote Of The Day: Pete Campbell Is Kinda Deep In Real Life

” Is Pete in love with Peggy? How in love with her is he? Why is he in love with her? Is it really just his ego? I mean, how many times have you been in love with a woman until she loves you back? And then you realize it had nothing to do with…

Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling…

Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we…
