Belated Mad Men Monday: “Hawt U.N.C.L.E.”

For reading on the show that drove Sally to want to experiment a little with herself, check this post out. In many ways, this felt like an episode that was just moving forward the plot, though, as usual, it was stuffed to the gills with surprises. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed…

Mad Men Monday: Katie Roiphe is wrong again

Honestly, it must be exhausting to be Katie Roiphe, to have to spend so much time ginning up stories where the whole point of them is to be so wrong that it makes people physically uncomfortable. I mean, if I could get paid like she does to be wrong in…

Bamboo Review: Mad Men “Public Relations”

You didn’t think I’d leave you hanging, did you? Not when I’m fairly obsessed with “Mad Men”. I wrote a piece for Alternet before the premiere with some speculation about season four. A lot of what I predicted remains to be seen, but my biggest prediction, which is that the…

Mad Men extravaganza!

I’ve got an article up this week at The American Prospect about “Mad Men”, where I look beyond just the usual talk about the daring approach the show has to gender issues, etc. and I talk about how the writers have a unique—and accurate—view of the 60s. That Don Draper…

Bamboo Reviews: Mad Men, Season Two

Warning: Pure spoilage. We just finished watching the second season of “Mad Men” yesterday, and boy, is that a satisfying show. It’s hard to review an entire season of a show, especially such a complex one, so I’ll make this post more just a collection of observations. Feel more than…
