Reply polly draper says: July 29, 2012 at 1:42 pm Lyle, Thank you for posting this clip. It really summarizes Season 5 in an interesting perspective that I’ve only come to appreciate as I’m reviewing the season. I have also had problems with “the submit a news item” widget with Chrome as my browser. What browser are you using? Reply Lyle says: July 29, 2012 at 2:49 pm Thanks Polly, you’re correct the Submit a News widget works perfectly in Safari but not in Firefox. Admin pls note. Thanks for the compliment. I produced this trailer and intentionally toyed with public perspectives of Mad Men for its darkest, most ambitious season yet. At this stage anyone who has not seen MM probably willfully ignores it, and for newcomers it’s been easy to write the show off as a form of contemporary nostalgia: the critique or indictment of chauvinistic aspects of its period were always there on some level, but often overshadowed by the way MM glamorizes and eroticizes its own world. Not so after this season. This is now clearly a show about broken, selfish people doing broken, selfish things. Its characters were always complex and deeply flawed, now more than ever trapped inside their own concerns and desires and unable to see who another person really is. Combined with the rise of subversion in the marketplace, it’s almost a meditation on narcissism. Like ‘The Sopranos’ before it, MM makes a pretty convincing case the rise of individualism causes most of our problems. Considering its success as now the most honored television drama of all time, we should be heartened by its indictment of our culture’s non-priorities: Buying things will NOT make us feel better.

Reply Deborah Lipp says: July 30, 2012 at 8:46 am Everyone’s OS and browser is different. Not every version of Firefox has problems. This is a 3rd party FREE plugin, so my ability to fix it or get tech support is limited. Reply Peggy Joan says: August 5, 2012 at 9:31 pm Old Mac running Tiger with old Safari here, but the Submit News widget worked just fine for me until now. Something must have changed. I can’t see the 5-item news feed in the right sidebar either.

Reply Polly Draper says: September 19, 2012 at 11:48 am The Nerve Awards for Love & Sex on Television: The winner for the sexiest scene… Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks flirt, Mad Men Mad Men featured a lot of sex this year, and much of it — Joan selling herself to land a big account, little Sally being traumatized by the sight of Roger getting a blowjob, poor Lane trying his best to leer — was the TV equivalent of a cold shower. The biggest turn-on the show served up was actually a scene in which everybody kept their clothes on: Don and Joan flirting affectionately in a bar. They banter and confide like the old hands they are; he cheers her up after she’s been served with divorce papers, and postpones going home to the hot young wife he can only connect with through messed-up bouts of angry carpet sex. They don’t get together, but if they ever did, the screen would probably explode. http://www.nerve.com/entertainment/tv/the-nerve-awards-for-love-sex-on-television Reply Julie Marsh says: December 2, 2012 at 6:10 am Hey! Can’t seem to post a news item, but I wanted to get the news out to the Mad Men fans that there is a RARE opportunity to bid on an in person, VIP TOUR of the Mad Men set for 2 in Los Angeles AND help a great cause at the same time! The item is at auction to benefit Canyon Coop Preschool in Hollywood, CA. We also have lots of other hot TV and Film swag to check out (Girls, Game of Thrones, Law & Order SVU, Clooney signed basketball, Matt Groening-signed stuff, and MORE), but this is personally my favorite item. Bidding on the Mad Men set tour starts at $2500 and the auction ends on December 10.
