Mad Men season seven spoiler: Don marries napkin
"I grew up in a knocking shop and I poison everything I love, but you're the only one who understands me, Natalie Napkin," says Don in the first episode's cold opening. Twenty minutes in, he starts cheating on it with a balloon whisk.

Rake's on a plane
No, I've got nothing else; I just like that pun. Mad Men season seven is back on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday 16 April.

Proof you can't fry an Egg on a car bonnet

Proof you can't fry an Egg on a car bonnet
Otherwise his feet would be burning. Ignore the fact that it's the car boot and not the bonnet, and take a moment to consider how many levels this joke works on. I counted six.

Breaking Babble

Breaking Babble
We did a quick look round the internet the other day and realised that practically no one is writing anything about Breaking Bad. Way to drop the ball, other websites: it's a pretty big deal, you know! Lucky you've got us around to discuss the face off it. (Spoilers all over the place, obviously.)

The brutality of Mark Strong

The brutality of Mark Strong
I haven't seen Low Winter Sun yet, but if this is anything to go by, it looks like pretty intense stuff. Witness Mark Strong, a tough cop hardened by a life seeing horror after horror on the streets of Detroit, giving a man a wet willie till he coughs up the information he wants. Next week: Mark nicks a guy's He-Man lunchbox and throws it on the roof of the science block to teach him a lesson.

Walking Dead season four: basically just Porridge with zombies
Trailer here. Spoiler alert: they're still in the bloody prison, and Grouty wants Egg to distract Mr Barrowclough so Ives can smuggle a load of butter out of the kitchen.

Review: Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season DVD

Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season DVD
With only eight episodes to go, I have no idea whatsoever how Breaking Bad's going to finish this year, and even less how I'm going to fill the empty shell of a life it'll leave behind for me. Maybe I'll try and recreate key scenes in the shed.

Another reason to love Mad Men: the preview vids tell you nothing

Posted by Ed at 00:05 on 30 May 2013


I read a Matthew Weiner interview recently in which he confirmed something I've long suspected: that the end-credits teaser videos for the next episode deliberately tell you nothing whatsoever about what'll be in it. They're basically just to humour the network's demands: collections of random dialogue snippets from which it's impossible to derive any meaning, let alone plot spoilers. I applaud this.

This is ... yes, I'm fairly sure this is a Mad Men season five recap

This is ... yes, I'm fairly sure this is a Mad Men season five recap
Season five of Mad Men was ages ago. With season six starting up tonight, it's fair to say my priorities have shifted a little in the intervening time, and I'll be stone plum buggered if I can remember what went on. And yet it says 'recap' at the top. How did I ...
