Mad Men, “The Monolith,” Recap the Recappers [TV]

Perhaps we weren’t the only Mad Men fanatics who assumed the comparison read better in Matthew Weiner’s looseleaf notebook, that once filmed, the juxtaposition between IBM’s monolith of yore and the increasing presence and obsolescence of technology in our lives didn’t quite translate.

Seems like Chevy Impala should be re-thinking [...] Read More

I think The Following is pure performance art. Consider Kevin Bacon’s playful, “footloose” (heh) entrance into The Tonight Show the other night. (Let’s Daaance!). It’s almost enough to make you forget Bacon is the star of a bloody 24-ripoff with interest only in shocking you with gruesome phony death. That’s gotta be it. Kevin Bacon [...] Read More
