In case you haven't heard, the final half-season of Mad Men begins on April 5tth. As they do each year, AMC released a new batch of promotional photos. They're all pretty great (you can see them all here), but this one's my favorite:
I've always felt that the stories of the women on the show were at least as important as Don's story, if not more so, considering the time period. But also, let's be honest, they're all stunningly beautiful.
This is my runner-up, mainly because of the relationship between Don and Peggy and how it evolved through the course of the show. It's also nice to see them smiling together, even if it's a staged photo.
Some Assembly Required is based just north of Boston, on the first floor of a nice two-family a mere minute's walk from the bus stop. He has one spouse, zero kids (and holding), and one dog, a retired racing greyhound who lives a ridiculously pampered existence.
He's a lifelong New Englander (though all four grandparents were originally New Yorkers), having come of age in the leafy, idyllic suburb of Warwick, RI. He's old enough to have watched The Brady Bunch when it was first on the air, but young enough not to have lusted after Marcia until it went into syndication.
He spends far too much time and energy thinking about clothes, shopping, wristwatches, TV shows, old cars, Christina Hendricks, and the area's bakeries and doughnut shops. He swears he's going to get around to watching the last season and a half of Battlestar Galactica one of these days.
