Mad Men Happy Hour – 709 – “New Business”

We’re not sure what to think about Mad Men episode 709, “New Business”, and maybe that’s an intentional choice by the Weiner himself, who co-wrote the episode… We discuss the mysteries of missing teeth, phantom cab rides, Pete’s improbably use of “Jiminy Christmas!”, Stan’s amateur pornography, and Peggy’s refusal to take a walk on the wild side. All this, tons of your great feedback, and much more!

Mad Men Happy Hour – Season 7b Preview!

Who’s hooking up, who’s left standing, what kind of man will Don/Dick ultimately be in the final assessment? All this and more as we gear up to give the series the send off it deserves. See you Sunday night!
