Mad Men: The Pryce of Success

We saw Campbell's life slowly unravel until it didn't seem like a stretch to think about him using that much alluded to shotgun. But instead we saw the end to a different man -- and his downfall, to me, was a little rushed; which is why I think I'm so disturbed by it.

Was this a great hour of "Mad Men"? I don't know about that, but Lane's story connected with me on an emotional level like almost nothing else I've seen this season.

Just when you get complacent with the status quo, Weiner purposefully pulls the rug out from under you. It might not always be elegantly done, but it's usually effective.

My Mad Men-Inspired 'Prosti-Talk' -- With My Mom

After this week's Mad Men, where my lovely Joan gets put in a compromising position and makes a morally questionable choice for the sake of financial security for her and her infant son, I started thinking about what I'd do in that situation.

The Women Have the Balls: My Thoughts on the Latest Episode of Mad Men

Here's the thing: Maybe Joan did something immoral sleeping with Herb but I don't care. The men at this firm spent the first four seasons whoring themselves around for much less than what she got for one disgusting screw. In the context of this show, that's nothing.

What's With This Season Of 'Mad Men'?

Maureen Ryan | Posted 05.29.2012 | TV
Maureen Ryan

I'm going to be fine with it when the current season of "Mad Men" ends. There's a grim, pervasively bleak quality to Season 5 that actually exceeds Season 4's descent into Don's private hell.

Thanks, Betty, For The Worst Episodes Of 'Mad Men'

Maureen Ryan | Posted 05.14.2012 | TV
Maureen Ryan

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.

Whereas "Lady Lazarus" seems to celebrate the death of the body and thus the end of suffering, "Tomorrow Never Knows" focuses on the potential for embracing the potential for new beginnings. And that's what this week was all about.

Emptiness, missed connections, lies and not getting what you want -- those were the recurring ideas, but overriding all that was the sense that someone was going to die or something terrible was going to happen.
