  1. Elizabeth Moss reveals what she was really doing during the scene when Don calls Peggy in “Person-to-Person”

  2. Thank you for posting Laura Carney’s piece on the finale. It is the most intelligent, insightful, magnificently researched article ever written about Mad Men. Posted above as Fashion and Grammar gripes. Her work seems to be sadly unnoticed by Mad Men fans. Such a pity. I suggest you sit back and take it in slowly. You will be stunned by how much of the symbolism you missed. I am a faithful viewer and I am always struck by her.
