Written by DuanaLast night's Mad Men immediately rewards me for my...faithful viewership? (Blatant Roger-Joan shipping? Ignorance of Don and Dr. Faye?) ...with a 'previously on' that promises all my favourite stuff will come straight to the forefront. Full Story

Written by Duana This episode, like all of the politics in it, made me feel slightly icky, slightly unsettled, and utterly unsatisfied at the end. I’m sure there’s a joke about Don Draper’s current level of sexual prowess in there somewhere but, to really kill the metaphor, I felt this episode was…limp. Full Story

Written by Duana TThis week I watched Mad Men on Sunday night like a normal person – thinking ‘this is how it’s supposed to be done, I won’t have to rush, I can watch and think and get really ready to write about the show first thing in the morning. Full Story

Written by Duana T (By popular demand, Duana’s back with her Mad Men recap. She’ll be offering a lot more in the fall, more details to follow later. And, yes, there will be a forum to discuss and debate it all with her. But for now, it’s her analysis of what happened last episode. Full Story

Mad Men won for Best Drama. Next year, in its final season, hopefully it will be Friday Night Lights. Next year, maybe Kyle Chandler and Jon Hamm can sit next to each other and make our lives. You know what the f-cking pisser is? At press time I can’t find one, NOT ONE, photo of Kyle Chandler. Really? Is that how far down he is on the list? Who’s managing this list. Full Story

Written by Duana TAs noted yesterday, many of you email to request for more Mad Men, but I don’t watch Mad Men til mid-week. Duana however watches it immediately, and could lecture every day about Don Draper, and she’s been kind enough to offer her thoughts on last episode. SPOILER ALERT if you’re the kind of person who’s bothered by that but as I just noted to Duana myself, when she cautioned me about reading her article since I’ve yet to see Sunday’s episode, with Mad Men it’s not so much about what actually happens, it’s more about how they react, verbally, non verbally, way down the road, the unspoken plot that only the great shows do well, the hypocrisies and character inconsistencies that may mean nothing to the action but everything to the story, and so much more. Full Story

It should be a regular feature. I wish. If there are new photos, it will always be a feature, not just on Mondays which during Mad Men’s season, seems to also fit the schedule. Many of you ask me why I don’t post more about Mad Men and, aside from the photo availability etc, it’s also a matter of when I watch it. Full Story
