Hey, Did You Notice the Whole “Death” Thing Last Night on Mad Men?

(MAJOR SPOILER ALERTS FOR MAD MEN!!! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE SIXTH SEASON PREMIERE YET AND STILL PLAN ON IT, DON’T READ THIS. SERIOUSLY, STOP NOW.) Don Draper has run from a lot of things in the five years we’ve been watching him. He’s run from his wife. Well, now he’s run from two wives. [...]

Mad Men Says Nothing — And Everything

Mad Men does loads of things better than just about any show on television. But something it never seems to get credit for is its consistently excellent use of nothingness — no music, no sound effects, no dialogue — to convey its most emotional moments. Ahead of Sunday’s two-hour season six premiere — on AMC [...]

Roger Sterling Can’t Remember What Happened. Why Should You?

Time to play catch-up since we’ve gone without links for a while. And by the by, it’s just four days until the Mad Men premiere. Did someone say Mad Men? Of course I did! It’s not insane at all for people to wonder whether the viewing public will come back to Mad Men when it [...]

The Trouble with Taking Six Years to Finish a Movie

Monday links, and don’t forget about the live chat on Friday at 11 a.m.! There’s been a Trouble with Cali sighting! There’s been a Trouble with Cali sighting! The movie, shot partly in the Poconos by Gilbert resident Paul Sorvino in 2006, is finally hitting the (kinda) big screen when it premieres at the Sedona [...]

Winter TV to Be Excited For

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record.) Winter used to be a TV wasteland. Networks premiered their best shows in September and used midseason replacements as filler to get them through the year. Not anymore. The winter season now means more good TV shows starting up than ever before, so here [...]

Emmy 2011 Preview

See that little ginger girl whose mom remarried some guy named Oscar a couple years ago? She’s the Emmys. The red-headed stepchild of the Oscars. That’s what makes it so weird that I enjoy the Emmys more than the Oscars. It’s more fast-paced, there always seems to be a major award being handed out and people seem to [...]

Last Chance for KISS Tickets!!!

(SADOWSKI NOTE: Oops! The deadline for KISS ticket entries is actually Thursday. Sorry for the confusion. I changed it in the blog post. My bad.) The immortal Stanley Spadowski is my inspiration today. “You’ve waited til the last minute … well, it’s the LAST MINUTE!!!” Then he twirled his mop around and fell on a [...]

Wonder Why Wonder Woman Costume Was Bad

This is it. This may be the snowstorm that pushes me over the edge. Seriously. I’m just not sure how much more I can take. Snow on the first day of spring is one thing. Snow on Phillies’ opening day is another. Maybe I can distract you from the unholy crap falling from the sky [...]

How Long Does Jon Hamm Put up with This?

Wednesday links: It’s official — Mad Men isn’t coming back til next year. This should surprise exactly no one, it was the worst-kept secret of the last few weeks. The problem with this won’t have anything to do with the quality of the show next season or how the product is delivered overall. The problem [...]

Five Questions We Need Answered at the Golden Globes

You know that fun-loving brother you have that comes to family dinners once a year, proceeds to finish both bottles of wine he brought for everyone and says at least three things that compel at least half of the table to roll their eyes? That’s the Golden Globes. We treat them both the same way. We don’t [...]
