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.

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.
