TV Review: Mad Men 4.5: The Chrysanthemum and the Sword

Posted: August 23, 2010 at 2:06 pm   /   Local, Television Reviews

A team of three is beginning to become very plainly clear to be the real heart and minds behind SCDP and one of those three doesn’t even have their name on the sign. Don, Lane, and Pete are clearly the movers and shakers of the firm and if anyone doubted Pete before they can not […]

TV Review: Mad Men 4.4: The Rejected

Posted: August 16, 2010 at 4:23 am   /   Local, Television Reviews

Longing was the word of the night in the world of Mad Men, except if your name was Pete Campbell.  From Don longing to get off the phone with Lucky Strike in the opening scene, Allison looking through that two way mirror, or Peggy’s entire arc for the episode that simplest of human emotions was […]

TV Reveiw: Mad Men 4.3: The Good News

Posted: August 9, 2010 at 3:11 am   /   Local, Television Reviews

I think a better title for this episode would have been, “Don and Lane’s Excellent New Years Adventure.”  That segment last night was hands down the funniest seven minutes or so of Mad Men in this viewer’s opinion and was a brilliant addition to an already terrific season of Mad Men. But we will get […]

TV Review: Mad Men 4.2: Christmas Comes But Once a Year

Posted: August 2, 2010 at 2:29 pm   /   Local, Television Reviews

Its Christmas time at SCDP and the office party keeps getting smaller.  Having added no new accounts in the last month, the penny pinching is getting tighter as Lane has reduced the party to “a bottle of gin and a log of Velveeta.”  Don is also not enjoying his first Christmas apart from the family […]

TV Review: Mad Men Season 4.1: Public Relations (Season Premiere)

Posted: July 27, 2010 at 4:36 pm   /   Local, Television Reviews

“Who is Don Draper?” A man who won’t meddle with the meddlers apparently, as the Season 4 premiere of “Mad Men” showed us. The show picks up almost a year after the coup of Sterling Cooper, and the formation of the new Sterling Cooper Draper & Price. With their swanky new table-less offices, full of […]

Golden Globe Predictions 2010 – Television

Posted: January 17, 2010 at 2:42 pm   /   Local, Movie News, Opinion

I won’t be going as deep into Television nominees as I did in film. I’ve seen about 99% of the film, and probably less than half of the TV nominees. So, I’ll just stick with my predictions based on buzz. Best Television Series – Drama Big Love (HBO) House (FOX) Dexter (Showtime) Mad Men (AMC) […]

Mad Men Episode 3.1 Review

Posted: August 18, 2009 at 12:09 am   /   Local, Television Reviews

The third season of Mad Men began last night and the results were just what we want from a series premiere in the middle of the show’s run. (Spoilers here in for the episode) I will say I find it rather interesting that the show reset some of the characters back their more original selves […]

So, Emmy Nominations are out and 30 Rock leads the pack with 22 nominations. The comedy series which is by no means a ratings leader is critically successful and gets a lot of viewers in coveted ad demos (as well as NBC’s other successful Thursday comedy The Office). Mad Men also picked up an almost […]
