I can hardly wait for the series finale. Fans may predict what's planned, but as former heavyweight fighter Mike Tyson had said, "Everybody has a plan until they get hit." And I expect we Mad Men fans will definitely get hit.
Don Draper has been shedding quite a few things this season. So it makes sense that he ends the penultimate episode in the epic novel for television that is Mad Men sitting alone on a bus stop in Oklahoma, heading west.
For those of us wishing for a happy ending finale next week or at least an easy landing, it looks as if it is not to be, featuring a funeral finale, minus Don, most likely.
As we celebrate our collective love of sharks, we should also take a moment to reflect on the many threats that sharks face. Sharks are in trouble -- and while we've made a lot of progress protecting them, we still need your help.
Keeping up with the Joneses is supposedly as American as July 4 and apple pie. But it wasn't something I ever worried about, especially since: a) I'...
We've quietly been collecting our evidence, and feel pretty confident in questioning the origins of the following "people."
Sure, we've all decided on our favorite looks from the Emmy's. Some of us even had opinions before the stars set foot out of their cars. Like me with Lena Dunham. I always know she's going to look mildly disheveled. Is that fair? No. Is it true? Yes.
If "Mad Men" turns out to be the story of Peggy's ascension and Don's quiet decline, I'd have no problem with that. Peg's got her eyes on the future. And I trust her to make the most of it.
Since the release of Jaws in 1975, we've been wading into the water a bit more tentatively. But it is the sharks that need to worry. They've been around for almost half a billion years, but they could go extinct on the West Coast in the coming decades.
America likes action, and so does the world. The superhero phenomenon is an interesting development that may coincide with rampant coach potato-ism and screen-orientation. Especially as the feats are pretty much all CGI.
Even the Devil drinks a Sno Ball and even Mad Men can get hit in the face. "Dark Shadows" just wasn't on its usual high level of awesomeness.
Any episode that prominently features Betty is a lesser episode of "Mad Men." She just isn't as interesting as the show thinks she is, and when she turns up, "Mad Men's" ability to tell stories about bitterness and dissatisfaction becomes noticeably unsubtle.
Have you noticed lately that some celebrity moms are taking mothering to a new level?
The roar of generational change got ever louder in this week's Mad Men, so much so that Roger Sterling plaintively wondered when things will go back to normal.
This week's episode, "Tea Leaves," deals with the passing of time. The constant fear of death and change are both about the fear of being replaced, of the younger honchos taking over as time moves forward.
Betty is someone who has always gotten by on her looks, and without those, who is she? No wonder she sits on the couch eating Bugles, because figuring out that question is incredibly hard.
