  1. Exclusive: AMC Puts ‘Mad Men’ Finale Spots On Sale As part of $1M+ Package

    Jon Hamm, Questlove Join Obama’s Campaign to Combat Campus Sexual Assault

  2. Not one mention of the so-called explosion of quality TV by Mr. Scott, of The Wire.
    Maybe because it is not about the mythic death of white male authority (over 400 of the Fortune 500 companies have white male CEO’s, in 2014!!!——————-this is a recording.)
    Or the true reason this show wasn’t mentioned was because most of the action on The Wire occurred in zip codes nobody cares about, or any of the Vogue set would even be aware existed.
    So no musings about delayed adulthood about them. They are invisible.

    Sex and the City, with its ultra clever dialogue is the most influential show of this century, so far?
    Scott has got to be fucking kidding.
    Maybe he’s been hanging with his own set of Peter Pan friends, and indulging in their whacky-tabacky.

    • A.O.-who?? I really miss Pauline Kael and the era of great critics. I guess we’ll have to stand in for them re: Mad Men. LOL
