‘Mad Men’ Season 7 Premiere Recap: “Time Zones”

It’s a classic Mad Men advertising pitch. We open in extreme closeup on a pudgy face telling a story about how the Accutron Watch changes a man, with hear several slogans: “This watch makes you interesting.” “Accutron. It’s not a timepiece. It’s a conversation piece.” … Read More

Your ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Refresher Course

It’s been a full year since the Season 6 premiere of Mad Men aired, so you can be forgiven if you don’t fully remember everything that happened.

If you didn’t have the time to revisit the entire last season to prepare for Sunday’s premiere, here is a brief refresher course on the important plot points from each episode of Mad Men Season 6. … Read More

‘Mad Men’ Season 7 Review: Slouching Towards California

When we last left Mad Men in the heady days of Season 6′s finale, “In Care Of,” things were in flux in the lives of Don Draper and Sterling Cooper & Partners. Peggy lost Ted Chaough to his family and possible redemption in California, gaining power in the process, a victory that came with restrictions. Pete lost his mother and his wife and gained the opportunity of freedom in California. And Don lost SC&P in a flameout for the ages, telling the Hershey account about how he used to buy a Hershey’s bar with the money he got from one of the prostitutes in the whorehouse that he grew up in; and in that loss, he found a freedom, finally taking his children to that house and showing them the truth about his past. Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” played them out, as Sally gave her father a look that said, yes, I understand some things now. … Read More

Jane Campion’s ‘Top of the Lake’: More Than Just a Police Procedural

Top of the Lake is a TV miniseries about a sexually abused 12-year-old girl who subsequently disappears, and the hard-case police detective who is trying to find her. Based on that logline, you’d think you’ve seen it before, and in the most basic, shallow, cosmetic sense, you’d be right: there are tough scenes in interrogation rooms, police strategy meetings with PowerPoint presentations, and plenty of shots of our protagonist gazing at walls covered with pictures of the missing girl. But there is much more to the series than that, which isn’t surprising considering its pedigree — this is the work of Jane Campion, the Oscar-winning writer/director of The Piano and An Angel at My Table. The idea that she would be interested in doing a mere police procedural is silly, and while she doesn’t cheat on the mystery elements, they’re also used as window dressing for themes that are far more compelling. … Read More
