  1. Flavorwire analyzes all of the MM season posters and asks: How Much Do ‘Mad Men’s’ Enigmatic Posters Really Reveal?

  2. Here’s one I imagine everyone will be interested in – new Weiner LippTV interview!

  3. Whoops! I only meant that to be a link – sorry! Didn’t realise it would embed.

  4. Please let this be the season JH finally gets his much deserved, long overdue Emmy!

    • Thanks. It’s the first link above, but the more eyes, the more better.

      • Sorry, short attention span, just read the first few words. But as you said, the more eyes the better. I really liked that MW made it clear that the sun was setting behind Don and that he was looking into his rear view mirror.

  5. Weiner has also just done a talk at the Berlinale. Easy to find on Youtube (I’m not risking embedding again!).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
