Mad Men love


Who's psyched for Sunday?!! Will you be watching? Above is a hilarious video montage of Don Draper saying "What" and being awesome. (Watch it, you'll laugh out loud.)

Plus, a few posts to get you in the mood:
* Cool behind-the-scenes photos.
* Mad Men for kids.
* A guide to (the many) Mad Men romances.
* Jon Hamm and Elizabeth Moss chat about the Don/Peggy dynamic.
* Don Draper disapproves.
* How to drink like a Mad Man.
* An interview with Mad Men's "prop master."
* Three Mad Men cocktails.
* The ultimate Mad Men playlist.
* A Jon Hamm interview with Playboy (because we really do read Playboy for the articles:)

(Thanks to Shoko for scouting help)

I love Mad Men and John Hamm TOO much. I cannot wait. That video did make me laugh out loud. SO happy that other people share my obsession with this show.

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG sooo stoked about Sunday! Been waiting far too long. Have been watching repeats all week to refresh my addled brain.

I'm not sure I should admit this but I've never watched it. I know I know. I even sell vintage jewelry and clothes, I should be watching for the style if nothing else!
This video was clever and did make me laugh. Perhaps it's time to jump on the MM bandwagon. I am a Jon Hamm fan after all.

lauren said...

boyfriend and i cannot wait for the MM return!!! woo hoo! :) *

Becca - {extra}ordinary wonders said...

I can't wait! Love the other posts you've found - great for gearing up for the new season.

nicole @ I am a Honey Bee said...

I can't wait!!!! I am so excited for it. 2 whole hours of Mad Men on Sunday! plus the cocktails. perfection

Desiree Jacobs said...

This is a pop culture super weekend and I am LOVING it!!! Hunger Games + Mad Men--- I can't handle the excitement!

kate said...

Oh, that picture is such a nice way to start out my morning - or at least now that the kiddo is tucked away to school, my child-free blog catch up morning. I am so excited for Sunday night!

Smith And Ratliff said...

I met Jon a few weeks ago and and did my impression, which was just "What?"

Anonymous said...

Can't wait either!

Erin said...

I'm so excited and ready for it to come back! It's been way too long. I need my Roger Sterling fix :)

Michelle said...

Have you seen the 8-bit video game for MADMEN? It's pretty fun for those who grew up on original Mario!

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG. Yes yes so psyched!

Mich said...

I saw this and my initial thought and reaction was "Hello Lover; oh how I've missed you". It never fails that I'm reduced to blushes, giggles, and "oh you!"s whenever I see a devistatingly handsome photograph of Jon Hamm (especially as Don Draper). Well, aren't all photographs of Jon particularly handsome?

I'm so giddy with anticipation for Sunday; I can barely handle it.

Thanks for pumping up the wait with great Mad Men sources :)

Have you ever listened to Marc Maron's WTF podcast? He interviews mostly comedians, but he did Jon Hamm a few months ago and it's really, really interesting. I love him (even if he did go to Mizzou). If you like podcasts I'd definitely check out Marc (just fast forward through his initial ramblings to get to the interview parts.)

Also, I miss my college guy friends' houses with Playboy lying all around the living room. It honestly does have the best writing!

Jes said...

i have it ready to be recorded. even though i plan on watching it while it airs. i'm just really prepared!

Miss Gee said...

If there´s a way to bake the man of my dreams - he would look like Jon Hamm.

Sarah Carlson said...

Great montage! I hate to say it, but I've never watched a whole episode...somehow I always catch on to shows years after being released! I'm looking forward to getting farther into the series on Netflix this weekend!

k8te said...

Ashton said...

Come on, Sunday! I've only seen the first three seasons, so other than reading about the fourth season's episodes, I'll be slightly out of the loop. I am still so excited, though! I cannot wait to get home and check out all these links, too! Thanks so much for the compilation xD

Lana said...

This is a great blog about Mad Men. Not just about the show, but some of the back story on what was going on at the time that an episode (the events they talk about, books they're reading, and so on). Hasn't been updated since last season, but hopefully they'll start again next week!

dolores @ Humble Ablog said...

Hehe. My husband and I tend to pepper in don draper's "what" in our everyday conversation. It always causes us to stop and chuckle...even in the middle of a silly tiff.

Can't wait for Sunday night!

mom-b said...

Joanna,
MadMen will be on anderson's daytime talkshow today at 3est (NBC I think). They will also feature a family with Eosinophilic Disease (which my son has). Love your blog. Hope some of your readers will be able to catch Mad Men on Anderson and be able to learn a little about this crappy diesase that is becoming so common in our children. xoxo

Serda said...

OMG. I was thinking the same thing. You have to check out this "What Would Don Draper Do" guide to life situations... plus Don Draper as an old dude. :)

Can't wait. I'm so psyched. XOXO

Hanneke @ Oh beautiful world said...

New episodes?! Woohoo!!

A Fine Balance said...

Catherine Masi said...

Dear god, this is a great round-up. And I can kick myself for not having cable at times like this. So I'll wait the year until I can buy the season or rent it on netflix... (I'll have to convince myself that it's all in the anticipation!)

Naomi said...

Have you seen Sesame Street's take on Mad Men? Too funny! YouTube it!
