Welcome to another recap of Mad Men. This week, it's all about newness, and weirdness, and drunkenness, and margarine. Peggy returns to the hallowed halls of the former Sterling Cooper Draper Campbell, Ted Chaough reveals himself to be both an amusingly bacon-focused drunk and an ace small-plane pilot, and Bob Benson finally makes himself useful. In other news, that poor Kennedy boy gets shot. Join us, won't you?
So, finally, we reach the faboulus finale of RuPaul's Drag Race, season 5. Of course, it has been padded more than a drag queen's hips. In the finale, we get brief renunions, and briefer briefs. Did your pick win?
Welcome back to our weekly recap of Mad Men. This one had everything we love about the show—gripping office drama, hilarious fantasy sequences, righteously angry women, and Pete Campbell incurring bodily harm. Kelsey couldn't join us this week thanks to a wedding in Arizona, but we've got plenty to say regardless. So grab a drink—sorry, Bert, we don't have any spirits of elderflower—and settle in.
We're down to the final three competitors in this season of RuPaul's Drag Race. Each of the trio has the crown and cash directly in their crosshairs, yet this week had to compete in challenges as rigorous as they were random. Will the winner be Alaska the all-around pro, Jinkx the jester, or Roxxxy the... um... hair choreographer? Read my illustrated recap of the show's best moments below!
Sorry for the late recap, folks — some of us needed a little longer to process all the condiment-laced drama of this episode. And others of us had tickets to a Prince show and had to wait until Monday to take this episode in. But we all had thoughts. Read on for our musings on loyalty, competition, secrets—and, of course, ketchup.
The fierce four remaining queens fought tooth and nail to pin down the elusive crown on this week's episode of RuPaul's Drag Race. Everybody's working past their last nerve to make it to the finish line. Candy clothes and punchy puppets took center stage in this delicoius and brutal episode of RuPaul's Drag Race. Here's my illustrated recap!
Has it already been a week since the new season of Mad Men began? It has, and in last night's Jon Hamm–directed episode, the diffuse setups of the season premiere are focused on work, love, and war—and sometimes more than one at a time. Read on for our three-person recap of last night's show.
It's that time again! Mad Men is back for another stylish, symbol-packed season, and your faithful recappers Kelsey, Andi, and Annalee are here to break it down and hash it out. For those of you new to our Mad Men recaps, be forewarned that these aren't linear summaries, but rather discussions of the key plot points and most compelling questions of each episode—and yes, you can be sure there are some spoilers, so proceed accordingly.
Last night's season premiere was a two-hour mood-setting piece that took us from Oahu at Christmas to the sunken living room of the Draper's New York pad on New Year's Eve. We know that 1968 is a big year, filled with civil-rights protests, the assassinations of both RFK and MLK, and the advent of the Nixon administration. But right now, all our friends in the world of Sterling Cooper Draper Price know is that it's a time when fondue pots are on sale at Bloomingdale's and everything smells like reefer.
