Colbert Interviews Weiner, Asks The 'Mad Men' Questions We're All Thinking

Colbert voices all of our criticisms of 'Mad Men'. As we wrap up the front half of the final season of Mad Men, it's time to clear the air, and Colbert does exactly that when he sits down with series creator and showrunner Mathew Weiner. He touches on the following during the brief interview:
  • Why is the season split in the frustrating Breaking Bad fashion?
  • Why is everything so sad in the show?
  • Does Mathew Weiner fear 70's fashion?
And oh, so much more. So take a look, mourn the loss, then curse the creator (Weiner, not God) for drawing this out far longer than he should have.

Watch Matthew Weiner Go On And On For Like Six Hours

If you start now you can be done by the weekend. The Archive of American Television is not messing around. They've released a 6-hour interview with Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner, in which he goes into great detail about the show, his life, his philosophy on art, etc. I'm guessing he also has time to talk about whether he's a boxers or a briefs man, who killed JFK, abortion, and which of the Herculoids are his favorites. Anyway, I did watch a couple random bits of this, and it does seem kind of interesting. Maybe if I ever have a couple weeks free I'll watch the whole thing. The video here is just the first hour, and you can watch the rest here. There's some interesting stuff about the development of "Mad Men," like the hilarious revelation that January Jones (who plays Don Draper's wife Betty) auditioned for the role of Peggy. If you've never seen "Mad Men," trust me, that's interesting.


The 'Mad Men' Series Finale Teaser Once Again Gives Us Nothing To Work With

Why would they change things up now? Mad Men has had historically unhelpful teasers at the end of its show. Matthew Weiner is required to do them by AMC, but doesn't wish to give anything away, so the result is a chain of non sequiturs and inane dialog from the upcoming episode. This time around, in anticipation of the last Mad Men ever, we don't even get that. What we get in this extended, minute-long clip is a series of looks back at the time we've already spent with these rotten people. We don't know where the show is going in its last hour, but this clip does offer a slightly sentimental take on where its been. Take a look.


Don Draper Arrives In First Teaser For 'Mad Men's' Final Season

This gives us so much, yet so little. The first teaser for the final season of Mad Men is here and gives us very little. Or maybe it's a lot. That's the beauty of Mad Men. It's got symbolism out the butt. Here we see Don Draper stepping off a plane and putting a hat on his head in slow motion. Where is he arriving? Did he follow Megan to California? Did he return to his hometown to confront the ghost of Dick Whitman? Does he realize his hat got switched with another guy's and go back on the plane to try to swap it out because of cooties? The symbolism is there, people. Look closer to find out.


‘Ghostbusters Return’ To Wreak Hell On the Mourning

Chubby Skinny Kids give a look at what the next generation of 'Ghostbusters' might be like. The youth today have no respect for the dead. There's a lot of back and forth whether the Ghostbusters sequel we don't need will ever get made. If you believe Bill Murray, it won't happen. If you believe Dan Aykroyd, it will happen and aliens exist and they are angry about 9/11. While those two work things out, we have this video from sketch group Chubby Skinny Kids to tide us over. It presupposes what the next generation of 'Busters might be like. The youth today have no respect for the dead. (Funny Or Die)

Matthew McCounaughey To Frustrate Us With Two More Lincoln Ads On New Year's Day

He could show up at my door, carry me to the dealership, and I still wouldn't buy a Lincoln. Matthew McConaughey's first Lincoln ads caused a bit of a blip on the pop culture radar, getting spoofed by South Park, SNL, and all your friends who do really shitty Matthew McConaughey impressions. Operating under the assumption that no press is bad press, Lincoln's dropping two more ads on us. On New Year's Day. When they know we'll be too hungover to get up and change the channel. A sample quote from one of the new ads: "You gotta find that balance where taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself." "This steering wheel is a flat circle." (I made the second one up, but the first one is real.) The top video is ridiculous conventionally, but the second one (below) is a head scratcher. He's clearly waiting in a diner to buy either a handgun or cocaine when he gets a revelation. HOW IS LINCOLN RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT?


Made Man's 'Men Of The Moment': Vince Gilligan

Spend twenty minutes with the man! Keep an eye on this Gilligan kid. He's got a promising career in television. Made Man recently sat down with the drama juggernaut to talk about success, the future, and, of course, Breaking Bad. It's interesting to revisit the show a) because it's awesome, and b) because it's been long enough since the maelstrom of coverage that we get a slightly different perspective. Granted, it's only been like a couple months, but it FEELS like a long time. Whatever. It's Breaking Bad-related. Just watch it.
