Matthew Weiner: Mad Men Ending Not Intended to Be Ambiguous

21 May 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

As a writer on the final season of The Sopranos, Matthew Weiner helped oversee the most contentious series finale of all time. The final moments of Weiner's Mad Men has not caused nearly as much consternation, but it has invited some level of speculation about what exactly happened between Don Draper's meditative enlightenment and the creation of Coca-Cola's classic "Hilltop" ad. »

James Gandolfini was approached about appearing in The Human Centipede 3

19 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I'm currently in the midst of re-watching The Sopranos and discovering all over again just what a great talent James Gandolfini was. The actor sadly passed away in 2013 but still had several films in the can including Enough Said and The Drop, but according to The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) director Tom Six, it's possible that the sequel to the body-horror franchise may have been among them. Tom Six mentioned in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he had »

Just how unlucky is 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm at award shows?

19 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jon Hamm has never won an Emmy. When he reaped his seventh consecutive Best Drama Actor bid last year as Don Draper in “Mad Men”, he distinguished himself from a half dozen of the most iconic leading men of the twenty-first century who had scored six nominations each: Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”, “Six Feet Under”), Hugh Laurie (“House”), Martin Sheen (“The West Wing”) and Kiefer Sutherland (“24”). Cranston won the race four times, Gandolfini three times and Sutherland once apiece. Hall, Laurie and Sheen were snubbed year after year like Hamm. -Break- "Mad Men" poll: Which episode should Jon Hamm submit to Emmy judges? But to equate Hamm with Hall, Laurie and Sheen would be to assume that Hamm’s bad awards luck is limited to the Emmys. Yes, he holds the record »

Why 'Mad Men' Needed a Happy Ending

18 May 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about how "Mad Men" began — a scrappy start-up on a no-name network that changed the face of the television industry forever. All of this is true, and quite deserving of the attention considering the series' landmark status, but what's fascinating to dwell on, now that Matthew Weiner's wild ride has ended, isn't how it started, but when.  Read More: The 70 Most Memorable Characters of 'Mad Men,' Ranked Premiering in the summer of 2007, "Mad Men" began an eight-year journey the same year "The Sopranos" ended its six-year run. Despite Matthew Weiner's ties to the iconic HBO series, "Mad Men" wasn't forecasted to be the second coming of the premium cable drama until people realized it already was -- just on basic cable instead. Suddenly there was another antihero on our televisions. Was he cheating on his wife? Yup. Was he a little bigoted? »

Mad Men makes its final pitch: for hope (Warning: spoilers)

18 May 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

None of the characters’ outcomes are actually endings – they’re just the beginning of their next chapters in the world Matthew Weiner gave us

Well, if there’s anything Mad Men taught us, it’s that Matthew Weiner is no David Chase.

And we had reason to worry. Mad Men’s creator came into his own under the tutelage of Chase, writing about a certain Tony Soprano. And like The Sopranos, Mad Men – despite its moments of charm and/or the episode in which everybody takes speed – wasn’t exactly feel-good. In fact, it was bleak. And it was bleak because Don Draper was the bleakest. Frankly, if you had said the finale would end with Don jumping to his death and re-enacting the opening credits, I don’t think anybody would’ve been surprised. But if you had said Don’s last words would be “om” before a Coke commercial plays, »

Mad Men: what does the final scene mean? (Warning: spoilers)

Fans are divided over whether the ending to Mad Men is idealistic or cynical – so what do you think?

Spoiler alert: this article discusses the final episode of Mad Men in detail.

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner was one of the key writers on The Sopranos, whose final scene, a sharp cut to black at Holsten’s diner, is still endlessly debated.

'Mad Men' series finale offers happyish endings from 'Person to Person'

17 May 2015 10:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

History repeats itself, first as a bad Disney inspirational underdog sports movie and then as the series finale for one of the greatest TV dramas ever made. In 2014's "Million Dollar Arm," Jon Hamm plays a soulless sports agent who has lost his way and become a dead-eyed automaton, joylessly banging interchangeable bimbettes, but losing the true joy he once had. Only through importing two Indian baseball players and adopting a few key pieces of their approach to life is Hamm's character able to get his groove back, rediscover enlightenment. Thanks, Disney! In Sunday (May 17) night's "Mad Men" finale, Donald Draper also had lost himself. But through appropriating a different kind of Indian culture, he's able to find enlightenment or cynically rediscover his mojo. No, the transcendental meditation that helps Don Draper realign after a nightmarish few weeks wandering in the desert, isn't really Indian culture, but if we're being »

‘Mad Men’ Finale Review: The Cryptic End of An Era (Spoilers)

17 May 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Before going any further, how did you expect “Mad Men” to end? A revenge killing by an ex-girlfriend? A quiet heart attack at 80? A flash-forward neatly wrapping up where every character landed? Sally Draper on a therapist’s couch, explaining her screwed-up childhood?

There are no right answers, perhaps. But based on the way series creator Matthew Weiner approached the show – and especially the meandering, detour-heavy nature of the half-dozen episodes leading up to this – there were clearly wrong ones, starting with those who hungered for definitive closure. After all, Weiner not only cut his professional teeth on “The Sopranos” but has also expressed his unreserved admiration for its ending, one of the more debated finales of the modern age.

As a complicating factor, as great as this series has been, it hasn’t been at its creative peak the past couple of seasons. “Mad Men” was never bad, but »

Matthew Weiner on 'Mad Men' Finale: 'I Don’t Owe Anybody Anything’

14 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has settled on a sensible, hardline approach to managing both fan expectations and his own ahead of the series finale this weekend: "I hate to say it: I don't really feel like I owe anybody anything," Weiner told The New York Times.

"I’ve been lucky to have them invite us into their home, but we have held up our end of the bargain so far," he continued. "We really have, and we've made such a painstaking effort to surprise and delight and move machinery that tells the story. »

The Top 100 Mad Men Characters

13 May 2015 6:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the measure of a series were the strength of its character bench, Mad Men would be an easy contender for Best TV Show of All Time. It already is, regardless: since premiering in 2007, Matthew Weiner’s period drama has consistently been one of the best written, acted, directed and produced shows on television, and Sunday’s finale will mark the end of a series that put AMC, Weiner, and many terrific actors on the map. As far as casting depth and breadth go, Mad Men belongs in the same conversation as The Wire and The Sopranos, which is about the best company a show could ever hope to keep.

It’s not going to be easy to see Mad Men end, mainly because that means saying goodbye to a host of unforgettable characters that made Sunday nights spent in the offices of Sterling Cooper feel like anything but overtime. »

First Trailer for Animated Pa Series Killogy is Ton a Fun

13 May 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Killogy is an ambitious animated post-apocalyptic crime series produced by The Boondocks producer Rodney Barnes. The first teaser has hit the web and I think it looks like a complete blast.

Killogy is based on the Idw comic created by Alan Robert and features the voices of Frank Vincent (The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Brea Grant (Dexter) and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein (The Misfits).

Synopsis:

Killogy finds Sally Sno-Cones (Vincent), Summer Rhoades (Grant) and Cole Edwards (Ramone) locked in a prison cell, accused of murder — just as the world is being overrun by a zombie apocalypse. The trailer shows the rag-tag gang taking on a disembodied undead head, and a reawakened voodoo curse flooding the streets of New York with blood.

Review: 'Mad Men' - 'The Milk and Honey Route': For old times' sake

11 May 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's "Mad Men" coming up just as soon as I'm the quick brown fox... "We both know things can't be undone." -Trudy "Says who?" -Pete "Mad Men" has chronicled a period of enormous social change (and taken place in a time of enormous change in television), yet it's often seemed agnostic on whether individual change is possible. Over the course of the series, fashions shifted and opportunities rose for women and minorities, but were the "Mad Men" characters themselves really changing with the times? Peggy has certainly grown, yet we've seen Don and Roger and Joan and others have epiphany after epiphany, only to eventually lean back on their old habits. (And even Peggy hasn't been immune to stagnation in her personal life, even as she's evolved professionally.) If anything, Don's frequent backsliding has been one of the most common complaints I've heard about the series' »
