YOUR APPOINTMENTS FOR ALL THINGS MAD MEN
INSIDE EPISODE 4.10: HANDS AND KNEESSEPTEMBER 28, 2010Here, the cast discusses the latest episode of Mad Men, "Hands and Knees." SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSHOW YOUR DISDAIN FOR PETE CAMPBELL!SEPTEMBER 24, 2010Although many of us observed recently that Pete Campbell is much more tolerable in his behavior lately, here is a fun shirt for hardcore Mad Men fans. Yes, it says "Pete Campbell Is NOT My Homeboy" and it's available here from BustedTees. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTR.I.P. MISS BLANKENSHIPSEPTEMBER 21, 2010Last 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. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTTALKED ABOUT SCENE: DON BUMPS INTO BETTYSEPTEMBER 16, 2010One 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. Be sure to discuss the episode with us here! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTINSIDE EPISODE 4.08 "THE SUMMER MAN"SEPTEMBER 15, 2010Check 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!SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN iPhone App! SEPTEMBER 8, 2010Want to mix cocktails just like Don so you can throw throw pathetic, drunken punches at Duck Phillips? Of course you do! Check out the Mad Men Cocktail Culture iPhone app here. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN ON ROLLING STONE AUGUST 31, 2010Look who just made the cover of Rolling Stone! The issue hits newsstands tomorrow and features some great behind-the-scenes photos. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTCONGRATULATIONS, MAD MEN! AUGUST 30, 2010For the third year in a row, Mad Men has won the Emmy award for Best Drama Series. Congrats to the cast and crew. This really is the best show on television! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTACTRESS WANTS MAD MEN HEALTH WARNINGAUGUST 23, 2010Desperate 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? SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTJANUARY JONES IS EMMA FROSTAUGUST 18, 2010January 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. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTNEW INTERVIEW WITH KIERNAN SHIPKAAUGUST 10, 2010 Kiernan 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. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTCOMMERCIALS CUSTOM MADE FOR MAD MEN AUGUST 6, 2010 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.SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTCHRISTINA HENDRICKS IN GQ UK AUGUST 3, 2010 Look who is gracing the cover of GQ UK! The show has really taken off across the pond, even earning a BAFTA recently. For those of us not living in the UK and unable to grab the September issue at newsstands, the interview can be found here.SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTEPISODE 4.02 RECAP AUGUST 2, 2010Did you miss the newest episode of Mad Men, Christmas Comes But Once a Year? Or, perhaps you saw it and just want a refresher. Check out our full recap of the shocking episode here. Also, please join our discussion thread on the episode. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENT1964 COMMERCIALS JULY 30, 2010We 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? SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN RATINGS ARE UP! JULY 28, 2010Great 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! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSEASON PREMIERE RECAP JULY 26, 2010Did you miss the season premiere of Mad Men? If you'd like a refresher of Sunday night's episode, check out our full recap here. Then, join us in the episode discussion thread! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMORE SEASON FOUR PHOTOS JULY 21, 2010More and more promotional shots have been released for season four! The cast and crew have been very tight-lipped about what to expect this Sunday, but these give us a good idea of who will be prominently featured this year. (Bring back Sal!) SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTCATCH UP FOR SEASON FOUR! JULY 13, 2010 Time is running out as we approach the July 25th season premiere of Mad Men. If you want a nice refresher for the new year, check out the season three finale in high definition on AMCTV,COM. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTPROMO PIC OF SEASON FOUR CAST JULY 8, 2010 The first promo pic of the Mad Men cast for the fourth season has been released! Check out the new looks and fashions. There are a few familiar faces missing!SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSNEAK PEEK AT SEASON FOUR FASHIONS JULY 6, 2010SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTWHAT 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."SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSALLY 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?SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMORE SEASON 4 PICS JUNE 22, 2010 More pics of season four have been leaking, including this promotional poster and a look at Peggy's new haircut! What do you think about Peggy's hair? SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTAMC'S SEASON FOUR PROMOSJUNE 17, 2010 If you've been watching AMC lately, then maybe you've been catching the little promos for season four. They are actually just teasers with clips from last season, but July 25 is just around the corner! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSEASON FOUR: FIRST OFFICIAL PIC! JUNE 14, 2010Well, this doesn't tell us too much, but Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first screencap from season four of Mad Men. The Silver Fox looks like he needs a drink! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN WINS BAFTA AWARD JUNE 7, 2010The 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? SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTFAN VIDEO PROMOTES NEW SEASON MAY 31, 2010Mad Men fan Jesse Wroblewski made a great promo for the new show, using kinetic typography. Check out the video below! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSEASON 4 SET PHOTOS MAY 10, 2010Some 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.Tell us your season four predictions here! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSEASON 4 TO PREMIERE ON JULY 25 APRIL 23, 2010Great news, Mad Men fans! We don't have to wait much longer for season 4. It will premiere on July 25, according to AMC. Also, Matthew Weiner has stated that he doesn't plan on letting the show run for longer than six seasons. A lot can happen in the next three seasons, though! What are your predictions for the show? Tell us here! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTNEW CAST MEMBERS ADDED TO SEASON 4! APRIL 6, 2010 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! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN ACTRESSES HOPING FOR EMMY APRIL 5, 2010Last 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! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTSEASON 3 DVD NOW ON SALE MARCH 23, 2010The DVD boxset for "Mad Men" season three is finally on sale! It contains 13 episodes, as well as extras such as a documentary about cigarette advertising. Be sure to pick up a copy! SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENTMAD MEN BARBIE DOLLS! MARCH 11, 2010Amazing! Mattel is actually releasing the above Barbie Dolls in July. So far, the only characters are Joan, Roger, Don and Betty. Fingers crossed we get a killer John Deere tractor, sold separately. Check out the details (including that $75 sticker price -- yikes!) here. SUBMITTED BY AMY_CADD A COMMENT
