Oh, AMC…cruel AMC…making us wait 17 interminable months for the season 5 premiere of ‘Mad Men’!
How did we get through the last year and a half without Don’s smoldering (philandering?) gaze? Without Roger’s smirk and Joan’s ability to fix anything, and everything, even as her own life quietly crumbles? And who of us hasn’t wondered what will become of Betty, who, despite having moved on to a Don-less existence, remains unhappy. (We get it, Bet! We’re unhappy without Don, too!)
Sadly, we were forced to ruminate on Don’s past conquests and to speculate about what’s next for the ad (wo)men of Manhattan…but no more.
This Sunday heralds the glorious return of Season 5…and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it.
We realize that around here, we have a tendency to become fixated on things we love. Full-on obsessed, even. (Have you noticed how much we love our dogs here at Sir A? Case in point…) But in this instance, we’re not the only ones celebrating a case of Mad Men Mania (Mad Menia?). In fact, those of you east-coasters can now take your own Mad Men Cocktails and Walking Tour the next time you’re in Manhattan.
Looking to leave your string of pearls and a-line skirts at home, but still want a taste of Mad Menia? Perhaps some Mad Men-inspired jewelry will do the trick. Buy your guy some cufflinks, while you’re at it…but remind him that the lipstick-on-the-collar act is only ever entertaining on a Sunday night at 9pm!
Can’t wait until Sunday for your Sterling Cooper Draper Price-fixe? Create your own character for the next boardroom meeting.
As for us…we’ll no doubt be shaken and stirred on Sunday night. But you’ll pardon us if we go MIA until Monday morning, won’t you?
We like our ‘Men’ straight up.
