Even though Mad Men has just struggled through a second straight Emmy Awards show with no wins, the show that is co-owner of the record for most Emmy Best Drama wins has some recent changes that should make its final season something to remember.
For most of the big pop culture events, I host a Twitter party to discuss brand marketing in real time. We gather together to talk about how the brands are participating in events like The Super Bowl, The Oscars, and last night ... The Emmy Awards.
The man loved his family, and still does, but were they ever more important to him than trying to be top dog? No.
I think we do know where we are headed as a society and are reluctantly accepting of it. America is marching towards an ever increasing militarism, police who are brutal and proud of it, a continued degradation of the environment, a financial breakdown of both the poorest as well as the majority of middle class families, and our television shows reflect that now.
Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston convinced me last night that the Golden Age of Television is making its way into the Golden Age of Theater. Wow, can he act. I know all the Breaking Bad mega-fans are saying I told you so.
Fraser is so good in Breaking Bad that the Emmy season buzz had her in the running for a well earned guest star Emmy nod.
Time and again, the damaged pride and vanity of the male characters cause them to act without logic and -- at their most destructive -- extreme violence.

It's the most wonderful time of the year for television lovers -- fall TV premieres! Season finales left us on edge wondering how we could make it through summer with the futures of our favorite characters in limbo.
Every time you thought things couldn't get worse, they did. Every time you thought the lowest point had been reached, it hadn't been. There was more. It kept coming.
WE HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!?
Settings and filming locations for popular TV shows pepper the world, and in many cases, you can travel to see where some of the small screen's most memorable moments have taken place.
We've created a few (totally fake, sadly not-for-sale) examples to send your child back to school feeling confident about their identity as well as the integrity of that peanut butter and fluff sandwich that you packed with loving care, and with the intent of surviving an ATV crash into the side of a brick building.

Once he had Jesse in his clutches, Hank became Walter White.
