Shocking Developments In A Revelatory Finale

As it so often has in the past, "Mad Men" took my expectations and subverted them as it expanded my idea of what the show could do or be. I'm still picking my jaw up off the floor.

Why We're Hating Don Draper

Mike Hogan | Posted 08.18.2013 | TV
Mike Hogan

Don Draper doesn't kill people. He doesn't cook or deal drugs. He doesn't oversee an organized-crime syndicate. Hell, he doesn't even use the F-word. But there's no question he's a bastard. He lies. He cheats. He undermines his colleagues in ways both overt and underhanded. And yet, in spite of it all, there has always been something about Don that makes us love him anyway. We know what a scoundrel he is, but we just can't quit him.

Mad Men: A Return To Form?

William Bradley | Posted 08.03.2013 | TV
William Bradley

The latest episode in this most uneven of Mad Men seasons, "A Tale of Two Cities," was actually a good one. Coming just a week after the least viewed episode since 2009, and just as I was thinking it might be time for a pithy 400 or 500 words on the show jumping the shark, it was a welcome arrival.

Mad Men: Change Partners

What happens on the advertising front isn't about advertising, with the exception of, er, margarine. It's about a sense of uncertainty about the precipitously merged new agency, which is still unnamed, and about personal relationships.
