Here’s a stellar review of Mad Men’s Season 5 finale, and the show as a whole, from TIME’s talented TV critic James Poniewozik.
I’ve never seen a series with an audience so engaged after each viewing. Yeah, people have voted tons for American Idol singers, and they’ve had brief water-cooler discussions on favorite Survivor cast members, but Mad Men has sparked more thoughtful, intelligent takes than any in TV history.
Eligible candidates don’t go back too far. This could only happen in the era of online media, unlimited column “space,” podcasting and the existence of hubs like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr for publishing and sharing personal takes.
I suppose this “Don Draper Seduction Music” playlist on Spotify is useful if I’m trying to get with a 72-year-old.
It didn’t upset me to see this image of Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) at my door today. It’s all so easy for her, as you know.
How awesome is this gallery of black and white photos from the set of Mad Men?
Some quality Mad Men reading after last night’s terrific “Signal 30” episode, directed by cast member John Slattery:
HitFix’s Alan Sepinwall: Down Goes Campbell! Down Goes Campbell!
Grantland’s Molly Lambert: The Unraveling of Pete Campbell
Grantland’s Mark Lisanti: Mad Men Power Rankings
Salon’s Willa Paskin: Mad Men Loses Its Cool
Everyone wants to talk about the fat suit, but let’s not neglect the tiny plane on the pedestal.
This is a great weekly read for any fan of the show.
