Check out the animated show Bat out of Hell on Kickstarter!

Today in Porn, Mad Men Edition

New York’s Vulture blog, which is almost as big a fan of the show as I am, links to a Bunny-frosted, Mad Men-themed fashion shoot over at Playboy.com. Any excuse to break out those old uniforms for the ladies, eh, boys? But the really interesting point is this: in Sunday’s episode, Pete rifles through a stack of stag mags at the doctor’s office, left there to help him along with his semen sample. Among the titles: Nudi-Fax, International Nudistour Guide, US News & World Report (!), and his eventual selection, Jaybird USA. Notably absent: Playboy.

  1. Matthew,

    Perhaps U.S. News and World Report’s showing up in the stack may be an oblique homage to Mike Judge’s Idiocracy (“US News and Hot Nude Chicks” I believe was it’s name 500 years from now…)

    But that’s just a guess.

  2. JOB’S BACK…

    I missed most of last weeks…Was Peggy still making eyes at the new priest?

  3. I have only seen up to the penultimate episode of the first season, and while the background sociological stuff is interesting, the story is not compelling. It’s exactly what the opening credits show: one man falling into a pit of lies. But he doesn’t have any desire to not fall, he doesn’t see any sign that offers some sort of resistance against the lies. It’s just falling. It gets old. I get it already. Planview, the guy in No Country for Old Men, the Joker — nihilism. I get it already! CALIFORNICATION is so much better!

    Congrats on the new kid!

  4. I am about in agreement with santiago after the mid point of season two.

    Where can they go with Don Draper’s nihilistic narcisism from where he is at this point? At the end of season one it looked as though he had had an epiphany and just maybe was on an upward trajectory, but he is back to and even darker, more evil place now.

    I am finding his story lines hard to watch. I had high hopes for the Peggy story, but even there I can’t figure out where they are headed. At least the stuff in church looked familiar (no prayers out of place).

    I keep watching though, because as hard to watch as it is it is still better than 95% on the cable dial.
