I was looking at my original post about Mad Men Episode 6.04: To Have and to Hold, and found this: There’s also something in this episode about secrets getting out, which does not bode well for Don and Sylvia. Joan’s secret liaison with Herb Rennet is known to Harry. Ironically, Ken, who is so angry [...]
Jon Hamm on playing the period: I certainly don’t know that world either. Neither does Matt; it’s a different time. But again, it’s not required to have lived through any of this to be affected by it. I think that, again, alienation or dissatisfaction or wondering where your place is in the world or in [...]
For me, it’s such a full-circle collision of realities. This style of art was a presence when I was a kid. There are things on Mad Men that look familiar, but none that YANK me to a time and place like this one–and then to have it in combination with the Mad Men imagery. The [...]
And you know what that means…. Jon Hamm on why Basket of Kisses is awesomesauce: You know, it’s interesting, and we talked about this briefly when you visited, but I’ve been reading your site since its sort of foundation….and it’s really amazing that it is; sort of the depth that you guys go to and [...]
We’re not splitting up. That can’t happen. In one bleak, yet sexy, opening segment of The Walking Dead Episode 413: Alone, we learn more about Bob then a whole shelf of falling alcohol ever taught us. And in that brief period, something happened I thought could not happen: I felt sympathy for Bob.
When the end comes, which will be a safer place to be? “It’s complicated,” or “we’re just friends”? On Scandal, as always, it depends on who you are.
In the aftermath of their friends’ murder, Elizabeth and Peter Jennings aren’t the only ones freaking out. The hotel-room massacre of Emmett, Leanne, and Amelia has everybody asking questions. Those closest to the answers, Elizabeth and Peter themselves, don’t want to be part of the mystery anymore.
This is hilarious. It’s for sale on Etsy by Cross Stitch Heroes, so click through.
I watched. It’s been awhile but I thought, well sure, it’s true I haven’t seen a movie all year, but this promises to be a good show. We’ve got Ellen; we’ve got the Minelli/Luft/Garland crew, Bette Midler, Idina Menzel—this will surely be a gay gala! We got off to a wonderful start. Ellen’s so FUNNY, [...]
This is the last episode in a season that has packed tons of drama. It’s time for a par-TAY. We deserve it. And, thankfully, the episode begins with Rose’s coming-out ball. Will she reenact Diana Ross’ famous disco hit? Will the Dowager Countess and Isobel be her back-up singers? I can see them now, spinning [...]
In Mad Men Episode 6.09: The Better Half, Betty flirts with a politician in the hall or waiting area outside of a fundraising dinner. She’s a married woman, flirting while explicitly mentioning her children. Stewart Dell: I want to be alone with you all night. Betty Francis: Mr. Dell, I have three children. Stew: I [...]
