AMC has released a large photo gallery of Mad Men Season 7 (Part 2). Now, I ask that none of you go nuts. These photos are gorgeous, but I invite you to remember that when the promotional gallery for Season 6 was released, you all went bonkers trying to figure out what the party was. The party, I remind you, was a staged event at which promo photos were taken. Of actors. It never occurred during Season 6. Likewise, I am not inspired by this garden party. It’s just a photo shoot, in my opinion, albeit a gorgeous one, tinged with regret.

Last week, Starz posted the announcement that the opening scene of Outlander’s mid-season return would air immediately before the Black Sails season 2 premiere on Saturday the 24th. The tactic electrified the salivating fan base, which is suffering the effects of “Droughtlander.” Here it is: This is a “teaser” clip if ever there was one. Some Highland scenery, some […]

This is what Peggy said to Stan in Mad Men episode 7.01, Time Zones: Well, I’m tired of fighting for everything to be better. You’re all a bunch of hacks who are perfectly happy with shit. Nobody cares about anything. No one wants things to be better? I got it. I’ll just stand out here, […]

Friday Light Nights Bingewatch: Mad Men has ruined everything

This will be quite a TV mash-up. I watch remarkably few television shows. I’m so ADD, it’s hard for me to devote myself to really watching something. I keep the TV on a lot, and half fluff-watch HGTV and (here come da judgey) QVC and Buffy repeats and (forgive me because of how very bad […]
