Mad Men S5 Reflections: Joan – Long Live the Queen

joan-holloway

Without a doubt, Joan Holloway/Harris is the undisputed queen of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Mad Men theme finds lyrics

Screen shot 2010-10-13 at 9.58.43 AM

Lovely! We loved the song “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2 that plays during the opening credits of “Mad Men.” We wanted to put lyrics to it and realized that “Nature Boy” made famous by Nat King Cole, and written by eden ahbez, was the perfect fit. This was filmed in one take (this one, specifically, […]

Review (commentary): Mad Men “Waldorf Stories”

croppedepisode-6-don-joan-roger

(Spoilers sprinkled in, be warned) Another week, another Mad Men. Don Draper is sure digging himself into some big holes in his “Life.” (get it?)

Again… continually blown away by this show. Roger’s outburst in the meeting with Honda was everything Mad Men is all about. The brilliant steps in plot and surprises with characters keep pushing this show along. Sally’s misconduct lands her with a children’s psychologist which we see that Betty is in much more need of than Sally. Roger’s past […]
