    'True Blood' Recap: Loyalty Reigns | ARTICLE

    'Mad Men' Recap: Truth in Advertising | ARTICLE

    I have a question for Matthew Weiner and his co-writer, Semi Chellas. Were they inspired by the movie Crazy People for this week's Mad Men episode, "The Other Woman"? If so, then they were able to take...

  • 'Mad Men' Recap: Ugly Betty

    'Mad Men' Recap: Ugly Betty | ARTICLE

    'Mad Men' Recap: Full House | ARTICLE

    Last week we established that Megan wants to enjoy her work. Now, thanks to a little fatherly insight, it appears that perhaps Mrs. Draper's aspirations lie beyond the advertising realm. What those aspirations are, exactly, remains unknown...
