SHOW YOUR DISDAIN FOR PETE CAMPBELL!
SEPTEMBER 24, 2010

Last week, we saw the demise of Don's beloved secretary, Miss Blankenship. She was a delicate flower who will surely will be missed. Here is a recap of the staff's reaction to her demise.

TALKED ABOUT SCENE: DON BUMPS INTO BETTY
SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

One of the most talked about scenes from Sunday night's "The Summer Man" was when Don bumped into Betty while he was on a dinner date. Henry was less than amused to see his new wife so affected by this run-in.

INSIDE EPISODE 4.08 "THE SUMMER MAN"
SEPTEMBER 15, 2010

Check out a behind-the-scenes look at Mad Men's most recent episode. Funny enough, AMC accidentally posted this before the episode aired and folks over at the show were none too happy. Matthew Weiner is not a fan of spoilers!

ACTRESS WANTS MAD MEN HEALTH WARNING
AUGUST 23, 2010

Mad Men Blog - Mad Men Fan SiteDesperate Housewives actress Kathryn Joosten has reached out to Mad Men producers because she wants a health warning to air before each episode! Joosten, a former smoker and lung cancer survivor, thinks the show glamorizes smoking.

She told E! Online:

I think they should at least have a disclaimer at the front of the show saying smoking is relevant to the time and place with the subject matter we're dealing with and it is not recommended because it causes cancer.

What do you think about this idea?

JANUARY JONES IS EMMA FROST
AUGUST 18, 2010

Emma Frost

January Jones is about to trade in her retro Mad Men costumes for something much more revealing. She has been cast in the upcoming "X-Men: First Class" and will be playing Emma Frost (above). Also known as the White Queen, Emma Frost is a telepathic mutant.

"X-Men: First Class" is a prequel to the recent X-Men films and also stars James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon and Michael Fassbender.

NEW INTERVIEW WITH KIERNAN SHIPKA
AUGUST 10, 2010

Mad Men Blog - Mad Men Fan SiteKiernan Shipka, who plays little Sally Draper, was recently interviewed by Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan. I was pretty tickled by how mature she sounded and frankly, just amused by the idea of someone that young doing press for a mature show.

For example, she says things like, "Every script is so surprising. It's absolutely great to get such great material." Heh.

Read the rest of the interview here.

COMMERCIALS CUSTOM MADE FOR MAD MEN
AUGUST 6, 2010

Dove Mad Men Ad

You might have noticed a Mad Men-style Dove commercial that has been airing during the show this season. In fact, a few of us mentioned on the discussion board that we thought it was part of the show at first glance. Here it is:


It's no coincidence that it has a Mad Men feel, as it was custom made for the show. Unilever, the company that produces Dove, has signed an exclusive agreement with the program. It will produce similar commercials for the following brands: Breyers, Hellmann’s, Klondike, Suave and Vaseline.

Each commercial will take place at the imaginary 1964 ad agency featured in the Dove commercial.

1964 COMMERCIALS
JULY 30, 2010

We caught a glimpse of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's critically acclaimed commercial last week on Mad Men. (You know, the one where the kid pretends to be in a Wild West jail?) Here's are a few real-life 1964 commercials. How do you think they stack up against the Mad Men ad?

MAD MEN RATINGS ARE UP!
JULY 28, 2010

Great news! Mad Men has long been known as one of the best shows on television, albeit with fairly low ratings. Well, maybe America has finally decided to turn off the reality shows and turn on their brains because Mad Men premiered on Sunday with record viewership.

2.9 million people tuned in for "Public Relations," making it the most watched season premiere in the show's history. True, that would be considered a small audience for a major network show, but it's quite good for basic cable. Season three averaged 1.8 million viewers and season two averaged 1.52 million. Slowly but surely, people are catching on!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN SEASON FOUR?
JUNE 30, 2010

According to Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, season four will be a fresh start for the series. Expect to see some major changes as Don Draper adjusts to single life and his new ad agency!

"I wanted to have a continuity of these characters and things that are happening to them ... and don't pretend like that they didn't happen," Weiner says. "At the same time, be prepared for the fact that [for] a lot of the things that happened, you're going to have to watch and see how they worked out."

SALLY DRAPER LOVES TRIX
JUNE 25, 2010

If you have kids in the house (or just happen to enjoy Spongebob) then you've probably noticed a familiar face in a new Trix commercial. It's little Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper! This spot is aired at least 5 million times a day on Nickelodeon.


The Trix bunny seems to be a more loving caregiver than Betty, no?

MAD MEN WINS BAFTA AWARD

JUNE 7, 2010

Mad Men Blog - Mad Men Fan SiteThe 63rd annual British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTAs) were held last weekend and "Mad Men" took away the prize for Best International Show. It was nominated against "Nurse Jackie," "Family Guy" and "True Blood." That's an eclectic group of shows, huh?

"Mad Men" is huge in the UK right now. I wonder what they thought about the British buyout (and subsequent selling) of Sterling Cooper?

SEASON 4 SET PHOTOS

MAY 10, 2010

Some behind-the-scenes photos have leaked of season four. Looks like Don has settled into suburban life once again... is he really divorced from Betty? Oh, and the woman ducking down in his backseat is reportedly a member of the production team and not a secret love interest. Presumably, he doesn't have to hide ladies anymore.

NEW CAST MEMBERS ADDED TO SEASON 4!

APRIL 6, 2010

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Matthew Weiner has revealed that several new recurring cast members will be added to "Mad Men" this season. Although he doesn't let on too much about who they are, these are their base descriptions:

  • A handsome/creative male. (Rival for Don?)
  • A voluptuous, curvy, brunette (Rival for Joan / Love Interest for Don?).
  • A nice guy with a lack of a personality. (Punching bag for everyone?)
Shooting for the fourth season of "Mad Men" begins on April 12. So, perhaps they can get these episodes in the can as soon as possible and bring them to us. Stat!

MAD MEN ACTRESSES HOPING FOR EMMY

APRIL 5, 2010

[Untitled]

Last year, Elisabeth Moss was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series. However, January Jones did not get a nomination. This year, producers decided to make her odds a little better by submitting Jones in the Lead Actress category and Moss in the Supporting Actress category. Let's hope this works out for them both this time!
