    • Thanks for the link to an interesting review. …Not even chemistry?? The chemistry must be respected.

  1. In the “what will they think of next” department…..”Las Vegas Prepares to Welcome Mad Men Slots”

  2. Elizabeth Moss on David Letterman — Don and Peggy play baseball in Central Park and how Mad Men ends, according to Elizabeth Moss

  3. The press photos and interviews for the end of Mad Men are just appearing…see Jon Hamm recollect his audition for Don Draper.

  4. “Peggy and Don playing ball in Central Park and no one noticed”
    That’s so great, and so New York.

    juat a quick comment on current events, am i the only one who knows that Brian Williams will never be back because MAD MEN taught us what a “six month leave” really means.

  5. i am an idiot. i submitted random thoughts in my head before doing the one thing i wanted to do; which was to quickly inform Basket Cases about an AMC contest asking fans to recreate scenes from the MAD MEN pilot.
    i read about it in Rolling Stone but i bet AMC will have something on it as well. Clocks ticking on submissions, so please excuse the curtness.

  6. After Mad Men: Kiernan Shipka in “One & Two” reviewed at the Berlin Film Festival
