Fortunately, Woodstock is still a long ways off. And the Summer of Love is, too (along with San Francisco), though it's just over a year away in the Mad Men universe. But the rumblings of change -- in this case racial change and generational change -- are getting much louder.
Don's always only been able to focus in on one part of his life. It was always work, now it's Megan. Will he let work go the way he's let his personal life go in the past?
On last night's debut of Mad Men Season 5, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is thrown into a bit of a tizzy when his new, hot French Canadian wife Megan (Jessica...
I luxuriated in the season premiere, which, more than anything else, felt like a big, shiny present to fans. Don's surprise birthday bash was brightly colored and amusing and, like the best "Mad Men" moments, full of lots of intersecting layers.
There's a lot about the New York trod by the real Mad Men back in 1966 -- the year in which we assume season five will be set -- that would send even die-hard Mad Men retroheads scurrying back to 2012.
The season premiere allows fans to marinate in the world of the characters for two hours, serving as an appetizer, if you will. They're a nicely calibrated prelude to the main courses to come. I'll drink to that!
If you're hoping for a film that actually challenges norms about what it means to be a grownup or a family, you'll be disappointed.
Hamm's remarks don't seem very careless -- they actually seem pretty thoughtful -- and he didn't say Kardashian isn't successful.
I hoped the boy wouldn't end up with the girl, but rather they would end up with other people. Alone would be fine with me, too. And I hoped that this non-happy ending would send viewers out of the theater smiling, because it really wouldn't be unhappy at all.
Friends with Kids is never as funny as I wanted it to be -- but I'm starting to think that few films can be. It's a smart romantic comedy that should amuse both halves of the couples who see it on date night.
Jon Hamm showed up as the emergency host, which only made me really wish that Jon Hamm was actually hosting. Also, explain to me again why Jon Hamm didn't host this week?
On this day we celebrate Adrienne's life, her accomplishments and the legacy she's left behind. It is in her honor that I started the Adrienne Shelly Foundation with a singular mission: to support women filmmakers.
Created by Finland's small mobile game developer, Rovio Entertainment, Angry Birds is a digital phenomenon. It has been downloaded an estimated 50 million times by people of all ages.
History, deep and multi-faceted, swirls around us, but our culture increasingly focuses on the momentary. That's at least part of the reason why Mad Men's Emmy feat has gone so little remarked upon.
Christina Hendricks has the old-world, but never old, sex appeal of our Marilyn, and is perhaps our first red-headed pin-up since Rita Hayworth. And she has major acting chops.
