preparing for mad men

August 28, 2010

Have You Been Caught Masturbating? Do Tell.: The blogosphere is still buzzing about Sally’s self-pleasuring scene, including Jezebel, where Sadie Stein asks her readers for some TMI: “While we’re hoping your stories of being caught in the act don’t rate quite to Draper-level of trauma, we’re guessing there are some classics out there — and we want to hear them. So share your tales of masturbatory angst! Let us heal through group therapy!”

Not Even Christina Hendricks Is Safe From Photoshop: Jezebel was also grimly amused with some altered photos of Christina Hendricks after she posed for London Fog, one of the companies featured in a “Mad Men” episode.

How Joan Holloway Gives Me Confidence: From earlier this summer, The Frisky’s Wendy Atterberry admits that it “wasn’t until … I finally rented the first season of the show that I really understood what a compliment it was to be compared to the incomparable Joan Holloway. She’s a vixen! A sex symbol!”

Were lives really messier in the “Mad Men” era?: On Salon.com, Mary Elizabeth Williams amusingly frets that Americans today “care about the ice caps and our cholesterol levels and attend sexual harassment seminars and recycle now, right? We must be atoning for somebody’s crimes. Wasn’t it easier somehow when we didn’t have to give a crap?”

Why We Need Betty: Linda Stasi, TV critic for the New York Post, wants more Betty Draper in Season 4. As Stasi explains, “(Betty’s) shallow narcissism, it turns out, gave every scene a very scary, very unpredictable aspect. Ms. Jones as Mrs. Draper was a perfectly perfect female specimen who was always just one mussed hair away from becoming a monster.”
