It's the end! But not really! But it could have been! With a death, a moon landing, a winnning Burger Chef pitch, and a whole lot of closure, "Waterloo" gave us a lot to both satisfy and whet our narrative appetite for the final season's second half, which begins in 2015. Join us as we puzzle out the meanings, moods, and unexpected musical numbers of Mad Men's mid-season finale.
Welcome back to Don and Peggy Are The Absolute BestMad Men. It was an episode where plenty of stuff happened—Pete joined the Mile-High Club, Don headed closer to a divorce, a closeted GM exec was outed in a horrifying if historically accurate manner, and a perfectly good cake was destroyed by Pete's petulance. But "The Strategy" will likely go down in Mad Men history as one of the show's best episodes for its quieter revelations, which cut to the heart of the characters' humanity in ways that exemplify why we keep watching. Read on for our take on the episode.
Welcome back! This week on Mad Men, there were confrontations, recriminations, come-ons, brush-offs, tears, envy, anger, and gumdrops. It was a little exhausting, frankly. Join us as we recap the highs, lows, and unpasteurized tastes of "Field Trip."
Welcome back! It's week two of the Mad Men season seven, and between faulty conference-call equpiment and mistaken flower identity, the halls of SC&P are already getting a wee bit thick with power struggles. As you'll recall, our recaps aren't strictly linear, but rather focus in on key themes, plot points, and character developments. So grab a drink—after marking your bottle on the waterline, of course—and tune in for our thoughts on "A Day's Work."
Wouldn’t it be amazing if the most popular sci-fi on television didn’t involve a ton of misogyny? And had real, complex female characters? I’m looking at you, The Walking Dead. You dropped the ball so early in your first season that it rolled down the hill and I forgot you had a ball in the first place.
