Ladies and gentleman, may we present the Queen of the Boob Tube (rimshot). The earth-shatterningly lovely Christina Hendricks has won our hearts by playing the icy-but-awesome Joan Holloway (occasionally Harris) on AMC’s Mad Men. The role has lead to three Emmy nominations, numerous movie roles, and her status as a burgeoning icon. Esquire magazine has named her the Sexiest Woman in the World, and we’re not ones to disagree!
After the wild antics of last week, the most recent episode of Mad Men took a much darker turn when it dealt with the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Between the race riots, general fear and loss of hope, this installment was so depressing that by the end we were longing for the good old days of straight up aimless existential despair. Needless to say, most of the characters were too bummed out to engage in their usual sex, drugs and rock shenanigans, but we tried our best to bring you the best (or worst) from Don and the gang.
This week on Mad Men, we got to see the cast deal with the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. It was very historic and emotionally-charged. But look on the bright side! Betty came back —FINALLY— and was just as ornery as always. Don got to see his kids and Peggy had apartment/baby talk with her BF!! Sit back and relax because here are the Top 10 moments from Mad Men the Summer of Love couldn’t even see coming.
Here we go!
Having a starring role on a successful TV show can be a double-edged sword. While it’s great to be popular (and the steady work can’t hurt), many actors find it hard to escape the long shadow cast by their most famous role. Once the series ends, it can be a slippery slope towards type-casting, and then finally a permanent stay in a town called “Has-Been”.
This week I was hoping to get my Betty Drapes fix but, sadly, I did not. Instead, I got force-fed Heinz Ketchup and Don’s cheating AGAIN. Trust me, I love putting ketchup on a lot of things, but too much can just ruin a meal. We only get one scene with Peggy, but you definitely get a big whiff of her newly found attitude and balls. So without further ado, here are the top ten moments from Mad Men you’ll trade a pack of cigs for!
After a whole lotta teasin’, the wild late sixties finally happened on Mad Men! Last night’s episode was choc full o’ pot smoking, crazy colorful parties, free love, wife swapping, and, of course, Serge Gainsbourg. This got pretty hot and heavy, but luckily we were on hand to make sense of it all. Thank you for coming to this week’s edition of Mad Men‘s Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll Index. Hang on to your hats, folks: It’s about to get groovy.
Like always, there was a lot of smoking, drinking and sex this week on Mad Men. On top of that, there was North Korea dinner chat, awkward brothel scenes, and Heinz ketchup got all over everything. We missed #BettyWhatTheHell, but hopefully next week we’ll catch up with her shenanigans. Here are the Top 10 moments from Mad Men the Women’s Movement is trying to forget about. Here we go!
Mad Men has moved from the placid buttoned down early ’60s to the wild swirling loud LATE ’6os. Big difference, y’all. Hair is getting a little longer, blazers a little more colorful, and offensive sexist comments a little less offensive and sexist. But those aren’t the only changes to the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce family. Now that the series is firmly planted in the Age of Aquarius, we’ve decided to recap the series through the only topics that matter: Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll! Beware of spoilers and read on!
Mad Men is known for being all buttoned down, black and white, class and sass. But in Sunday night’s Season 6 premiere we rang in the year 1968, which means we are smack dab in the heart of the The Sixties. You know: The colors, the drugs, the free love, the awesome music…and the unfortunate facial hair. So in honor of Don Draper’s arrival into this new era, we’ve decided to recap the show based on three critera: Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll!
Toward the end of last season of Mad Men, we were left with an image of two dogs making sweet, sweet love as Peggy watched from her window, mortified.
These are the kind of moments I cherish from this show. With that said, Sunday night’s premiere did NOT disappoint. It brought MANY awkward, WTF, and #BettyWhatTheHell moments that I hope you will cherish too.
