  1. To help with Mad Men withdrawal, Vanity Fair speculates on “The Male-Grooming Maximalism of Mad Men’s Next Season”

    I can’t decide which I like best — Don Draper wearing a David Bowie, John Lennon or Elton John. Or, maybe it is Henry Francis with a Jimi Hendrix or Roger Sterling with a Frank Zappa or Burt Cooper with an Art Garfunkel.

    I just don’t know how I will survive until the premiere of Mad Men’s last season in Spring 2014!

  2. An insightful look at the Drapers’ apartment by a historian and Mad Men viewer (who also happens to be a relative of mine):

    “Like renderings of other New York City (fictional) apartments, the Draper pad offers a vision of Manhattan that helps shape and define the enactment of the show’s larger morality tale. And it is within the Draper apartment that so much of that drama is played out.”

  3. MAd Men’s “Emmy disaster”. Really? Please.

    The only way not getting nominated would be a “disaster” is if Weiner jumps the shark and starts writing for the Real Houswives crowd in the last season.

    from the site:

    But “Mad Men” has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons this year, as it has taken a critical beating of its own. Veteran TV Guide critic Matt Roush described the season as “terribly disappointing and weirdly heavy-handed” while the Associated Press’ Frazier Moore labelled the first couple of episodes “a disappointment—even annoying.”

    Who the hell are Roush and Moore? I read the Lipps and Sepinwall – they both pretty much loved the show same as always.
