I did it! I have completely updated and restored Season 7 of Mad Men to the site.
This includes:

  • Full recaps for every episode, linked from the main S7 Episode Guide.
  • Quotes from each episode.
  • Cultural references from each episode.
  • Episode music. (Note that I usually don’t include the David Carbonara original pieces here.)
  • And the quote generator in the sidebar is also up-to-date!

Matthew Weiner on the Set of Mad Men/Museum of Moving Image

On Friday, March 20, 2015, the Lipp sisters attended an amazing event; a talk by Matthew Weiner at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. And we do mean amazing. We’ve seen Matt speak often, and he’s always among the world’s most engrossing speakers, but this was special.

The evening started with Roberta’s walkabout of the fabulous Mad Men exhibit. We promise more details about this in the near future, but for now all she can say is, go if you’re able because it’s cool as fuck.

When Matt spoke, he was loose, almost giddy. At one point he said “I don’t know why I’m saying this. I’m completely sober.” He joked, he was sarcastic, he played. At least twice he said that he could tell us now, since the show was over….(and then whatever that was), and at another point he spoke of feeling free. That was it, really. This was the loose, relaxed, let-it-all-out Matthew Weiner, and that was a delight. He also let loose on the trivia and tidbits, plus tons of spoilers, (KIDDING!) so read on! Continue reading »

Blog Note: Recap Delays

Feb 23, 2015

I was watching the Oscars. Downton Abbey will be up tomorrow. I’m hoping Better Call Saul will not be affected, and will also be up tomorrow. But it’s a lot of TV for one little bitty blogger to recap.

Blog Note: Downton Abbey

Jan 12, 2015

Hey Basketcases! Our beloved Marly is not available for Downton Abbey recaps this season because of a brain-consuming project. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn about this until after I watched the Season 5 premiere and deleted it from my DVR. But as of episode 2, I’ll take over Downton recap duties. I am probably not as […]

Hey Basketcases! We’re switching things up around here. After three years of writing Homeland recaps, Basketwriter Anne B. just can’t go on without Brody. Meanwhile, our Walking Dead recaps have suffered from some inconsistency, with three different regular writers (Arthur, Peg, and me) in just four seasons. From here on out, Anne B. is in […]
