I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, where’s my Masters of Sex? Where’s Hell on Wheels? ANYTHING? ANYBODY?

Roberta and I have been working very long hours on a very short deadline for a thrilling writing project, which we will tell you about really soon. Unfortunately, and temporarily, it has taken us away from the blog. You’ll get your TV shows and other stuff OH. SO. SOON.

Sunset on the beach

I’m going away for the weekend. BEACH! BEACH!

Either Hell on Wheels or Masters of Sex, or possibly both, will be a little late.

Happy 50th Birthday, Matt!

Jun 29, 2015

Deb and I agreed that I would write one of my birthday odes. I spent a lot of time with it, thinking about what might rhyme with the likes of Hilltop, Melfi, Ossining, Arlo, and Don Draper. And it just wasn’t happening. Odes aside, the truth is we just adore Matt, and we’re both incredibly […]

YOUR Mad Men Finale Predictions ….

Jun 9, 2015

Hey Basketcases … apologies for the lag in following up on our little “Finale Prediction” game.  We actually had 52 entries (!) in the game, and it’s taken me a little while to sift through them all. Using the International Mad Men Prognostication Scoring System, the average score was 0.0, with a high-score of 0.1. […]

Exclusive! Part 1: Conversation with Kevin Rahm: What do The Instructions Say?

May 14, 2015

Shortly after Kevin Rahm joined the cast of Mad Men, I was lucky enough to have a friend (virtually) introduce us. Since that time it’s been something of a Mutual Admiration Society, peppered with we-really-need-to-do-an-interview-one-of-these-days moments. So I wasn’t shocked when Kevin agreed to do the interview via Skype, and it made for a more […]
