Sunday Night TV
We’ve stopped going out on Sunday night, since whatever HBO and AMC has lined up for us is inherently more interesting than our lives. But now that our season favorites are winding to a close, we wanted to commemorate some of our favorite strong women on the weekend line-up. Sure, they might be as cruel, heartless, and well-dressed as Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman, but they’re just so much fun!
In a season four episode of Mad Men, Don Draper won a CLIO Award for his work on the Glo-Coat campaign. Alcohol-fueled misbehavior and office tensions ensued. The Observer was eager to relive those moments at the Museum of Natural History, where the “Oscars of advertising” were given out last night.
Some people from a popular TV show about a better time in economic history opened the New York Stock Exchange today. Cross-promotion, or just grim irony?
We were wondering what else could explain for these stiff, uncomfortable, dead-eyed shots of the cast of AMC’s most award-winning-est show. Is it just that Jon Hamm and co. have been out of the game so long that the press for season five has taken them all by surprise?
