Mad Men returns in January 2015, just weeks away, for the second half of season 7

Meanwhile here is this amusing video of the actors in earlier and very different roles:

Suburban Commando is one of my favorite movies, I had no idea that little girl was Peggy!

I didn't realize it was returning in January! For some reason I thought it was later in the year. This made my day :) Mad Men is my favorite show.

It seems my earlier impression was correct; I was looking for a premiere date and everything I've read says it will return in the spring, not in January.

This article seems to suggest spring 2015:

I guess if the IMDB doesn't put a date on S07E8 in a few days we will have to accept the bad news of waiting until the spring.

I pretty much agree with everything Tom and Lorenzo wrote about the episode..."we're here? Again?"
http://tomandlorenzo.com/2015/04/mad-men-severance/

I really liked the scenes with Joan and Peggy. Peggy irritates me so much but I still want things to work out with this Stevie guy, even though I doubt that they will.

I wonder how they're going to wrap all of this up. What will happen to Don? I want to see what's up with Betty and Sally!

Also...Roger's mustache. I just can't.

I was, surprisingly, just really mad the whole episode that it was a new season instead on a continuation of last season. It just wasn't what I was expecting and I've been excited for weeks.

It's interesting that we went all the way back to season 1 in a lot of ways, Topaz pantyhose, Joan and Peggy snipping at each other, Don and Roger with lots of girls, fur coats, naps, and Rachel Menken.

I'm sure next week will have Betty and the kids, I feel like that's the formula for the beginning of new seasons, episode one check in with the office, episode two check in with the family.

Also interesting that they had "is that all there is" playing throughout the whole episode. It stick me as more of a finale song than a season opener. Maybe we will find that it's not all there is. Though I doubt it.

Absolutely. Their commentary on this show has consistently been some of the smartest, most insightful, and carefully observed of anything being written about it. I'll miss their recaps and Mad Style posts almost as much as the show itself.

I know! I start laughing every time I think about it! Ted's is pretty bad, too, but at least he's rocking a sort of '70s Donald Sutherland vibe; Roger just looks like 1. he's got the world's most epic milk mustache, or 2. an elderly caterpillar has taken up residence on his upper lip.

What have they done to my Roger?? He looks like Mark Twain after an encounter with an overzealous barber.

I'm usually very blah about MM first episodes, but this one really creeped me out; especially the waitress. The sense of foreboding was so strong. Of course, considering the way Matthew Weiner toys with the viewers, it could mean that Don lives happily ever after.

I think this was very on par with the beginning of a season for Mad Men. It was painful to see Don on the outs with almost everyone for the one time he was honest with people about himself, and in some ways it's nice to have him back in charge, even if the partying means that he hasn't changed all that much. I was so sad about Rachel, I had been hoping they'd find their way back to one another.

I loved Peggy's date with Brian Krackow. I do hope they work out, or Peggy and Pete get together - that would be amazing.

Basically, I want everyone to have a Parks & Rec style happy ending.

I love this write-up!

I started falling asleep watching and I was like "HELL NO WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!" because usually Mad Men has me rapt, but I realize from that write-up that I missed so much of significance because it just felt like an episode I'd already seen before. I might watch it again.

After everything I've seen Don do I don't know why I was so traumatized by the diner girl thing--it really repulsed me and I've seen so much worse. I guess it is the realization that we make, along with Don's character, that he SHOULD be so much better. He should have learned something. He hasn't.

Peggy slut-shaming (essentially) Joan made me livid, and also it didn't make a whole lot of sense. Joan is incredibly curvy and beautiful and because of that, her clothes look sexy on her and men notice her. Peggy could dress in basically nothing and probably no one would even notice--so Joan is supposed to feel ashamed of her curves? UGH PEGGY. I don't care that you had a nice date. Joan for president.

I kept exclaiming that, too. Joan was wearing a blouse and a skirt, hardly what I would call provocative clothing. But she could probably make a burlap sack look sexy as hell.

I found this week's episode boring. I don't find the story line with Diana interesting at all.

Also I had no idea Don was so rich! I mean, I knew he had money, but I didn't know he was a millionaire.

Yeah, I don't get the point of her. I feel like we're wasting time that could be better spent on Joan or Sally. I know it's the style of the show, but it feels like they think they have more than 5 episodes left.

I kept trying to remember the name of the actress who played Pima - I knew her first name is Mimi but the only surname I could think of was Imfurst. (I did eventually remember that it's Rogers.)

i know the partners got a lot of money when they were bought out or merged or whatever, but i thought it was locked up in stocks or something.

it makes you wonder why he was so stingy about $500 then.

also, are they seriously going to ship that giant sofa set ALLLLL the way to california?

So I'm avoiding recent posts since I didn't see Sunday's episode, but that video! Oh my god! I haven't seen Mr. Deeds but Lane's character made me laugh out loud at the difference.

Ted Chaogh I am already well aware of, and laugh every time I see him or his Friends episode. He also had a role in Scrubs, I think, where he was so charming and had such a friendly smile that all the main doctors had a bit of a crush on him. It's been hard taking him seriously.

I liked that episode, but Diana, UGH. Could she be any more pouty and one-dimensional? We get it, the world has wronged you. You're not the first person in the world to have been hurt.

Also, giving Megan a million bucks was insane.

This show looks pretty interesting. Is there a way to catch reruns of this show? I may have missed the previous ones. I don't want to just jump in the middle of the hype train lol

If you have Netflix, seasons 1-6 and the first half of season 7 are up!

ETA:. . . . in the US. I just noticed from your sig that this might not help.
