The first half of Mad Men’s swan song has hit its last note. “Waterloo” saw battle in every direction and to the victor went the spoils. As mankind took its first steps on the moon, Sterling Cooper & Partners again fought to free itself from tyranny. We just hope the right Napoleon was ousted once and for all.
On last night's episode of Mad Men, the women were the stars. “The Strategy” was the same as always, but with Peggy and Joan in positions of power. With everything set, can these last moments live up to a thunderous conclusion?
There are only two episodes left of Mad Men this year and after last night you’re going to regret it. “The Runaways” are three, and though they all run in different directions, without them we'd be lost. Don Draper is on his way, but who knows where he’ll land.
The future is coming to Mad Men but not everyone’s ready for change. “The Monolith” grapples with Sterling Cooper & Partner’s new computer, and the transformation of an office and a man. With Roger on a farm struggling with a newly free spirit, the '70s are crashing down on our old world men. The Players: Director: Scott Hornbacher Writer: Erin...
This week on Mad Men the motto is ask and you shall receive. “Field Trip” fulfilled our heart's desires, but not in the way we wanted. Don managed to roll with the punches,but not everyone else did.
It’s Valentine’s Day On Mad Men and something’s in the air. “A Day’s Work” unfolds on February 14, 1969. Love isn’t in the air for everyone but drama is definitely on the agenda.
The season premiere of Mad Men kicked off in January 1969. “Time Zones” is set just two months after the sixth season finale, around the inauguration of Richard Nixon. Don, Peggy, Joan and Roger steal the night and our hearts.
By Odin’s beard, the Anchorman sequel is finally hitting Blu-ray and DVD! And in three cuts, with one a super-sized gluttonous version. Oh, and 47 Ronin is coming out too, along with some catalog cuts from Universal.
John Slattery (Mad Men) offers up God's Pocket, his feature directorial debut, to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. This family/crime drama seems like it could be inspired by (or the basis for) any number of Tom Waits songs. That is to say, unkind to its characters, bleak in its worldview, but ultimately a unique and colorful tale. The...
The final episode of Mad Men’s sixth season has come and gone, leaving a crater in its wake. “In Care of” introduced a shocking new future for SC&P and many of its inhabitants. But the way ahead for Don is what grabbed everyone’s attention.
No one does a penultimate episode like Mad Men. “The Quality of Mercy” was loaded with intrigue, and there was more than one conflict to concern yourself with. As Don and company barrel toward the sixth season finale ask yourself: Is anyone on this show capable of mercy?
On Mad Men, “Favors” proves that once a child’s innocence is lost, it can never be retrieved. The consequences of last night’s revelations will resonate throughout season six. Little Sally Draper is a kid no more.
Last night, Mad Men continued to impress from both sides of the country. “A Tale of Two Cities” brought change for more than a few members of the new agency. Underneath that there was a dark realization that's been plaguing everyone for some time. It seems the future is creeping closer, and one of our beloveds will be unable to escape.
Last night Mad Men went to camp. “The Better Half” had Don distracted with his family, and his newly thin ex-wife. That allowed for Peggy to take center stage, but her choices may have left her without any options.
Last night, Mad Men returned to the world of shared drug use. “The Crash” saw a motley crew from the still unnamed agency indulge in illegal medical enhancement. Through the rose colored glasses of influence, our dark heroes enchanted us with their stories.
Merging isn't without its problems on Mad Men. "Man With a Plan" focuses on the currently nameless agency, along with all the trouble it creates. With John Slattery in the director's chair, the episode held a certain air, but it wasn't enough to hide a slowly creeping oversight.
If you thought last week's episode slowed momentum, you were wrong. Mad Men's barely giving you time to catch your breath. "For Immediate Release" changed the face of the business we love, in more ways than one.
Last night's Mad Men dealt with a historical loss—the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "The Flood" left everyone grasping for understanding much like those who really suffered through the tragedy. While people were reeling, one or two developments still managed to break through.
Mad Men continues to impress this week. “To Have and To Hold” resonates in more ways than one. As Don grapples with the price of his wife’s success, a light is shone on Joan’s current state.
Mad Men is back in its element. “Collaborators” saw Don and Peggy warring with their staff and clientele. But that was the least of Don’s problems. The weight of his past and present is weighing on him. He’s not the only tortured soul as Joan and Pete battle life’s drama as well.
