Reportedly, some […]Read On »

I thought following on the heels of last week’s episode of MAD MEN, that there would be a HUGE finale that would leave fans reeling, but honestly it felt more like a normal episode with not a lot of huge revelations taking place. “The Phantom” just seems like it […]Read On »

MAD MEN has its fifth-season finale tonight on AMC. Created by Matt Weiner, the series about the careers and personal lives of Madison Avenue advertising executives has won Emmys and viewer loyalty One of the other things MAD MEN has done is made a sex symbol and fashion icon of Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Holloway Harris. Over the seasons, Joan has risen from being a secretary to, this season, a partner in the firm. Hendricks, born in Tennessee and raised in Idaho, acquired a cult following for her role as the many-named con woman Saffron on FIREFLY and was […]Read On »

The Top Ten WOW Moments of MAD MEN Season Five

The fifth season of MAD MEN has been interesting. There have been lots of changes and losses and even some gains. The series still manages to keep me completely entertained and ready for the next episode as soon as the current one is ending. Since there have been so many random WOW moments this season (and the finale hits Sunday night), ASSIGNMENT X decided it was time to look back at the best (and in some cases most disturbing moments) of Season 5. 10. Megan gets a musical introduction Making sure to show that Megan (Jessica Pare) is not just […]Read On »

Just when you think things couldn’t go darker in the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, we have “Commissions and Fees”. There is only one episode left of the season and I really have absolutely NO idea […]Read On »

AMC’s series MAD MEN, now in its fifth season Sundays at 9 PM, has some things in common with its character Peggy Olson, played by Elisabeth Moss. When MAD MEN, created by Matthew Weiner, began its run in 2007, no one knew that it would turn out to be an award-winning juggernaut. Likewise, when Moss’ Peggy joined the Madison Avenue advertising firm then known as Sterling-Cooper in 1960, no one foresaw that she would become the company’s first female copywriter and one of the strongest people there. Moss has been nominated for the Supporting Actress in a Drama Series three […]Read On »

This can happen in subtle ways, or it can be something that strikes the audience over the head. “The Other Woman” is one of the best episodes  this season. The degradation of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Campbell has been inching its […]Read On »

Stars: John Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, Jared Harris, John Slattery, January Jones, Jessica Pare, Robert Morse, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Kiernan Shipka Writer: Victor Levin & Matthew Wiener, Series created by Matthew Wiener Director: Michael Uppendahl       Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: May 20, 2012 “Christmas Waltz” is such an odd episode of MAD MEN to me. It feels like little bits and pieces of various characters’ stories without any kind of a central through line to tie them together as well as some episodes in the past. There are so many significant moments in this […]Read On »

Betty has had a long journey from being the innocent wife that most of us felt sorry for in the first season of the series. Her character was perfectly justified in wanting a divorce from […]Read On »
