We've seen the cast of AMC's Mad Men be Mean Girls and an international spy agency, but what if the gang moved across the street to 30 Rockefeller Plaza? (via)

For some reason I don't recognize too much from 30 Rock. But the tuxedo farmer one is amazing.

I'm just waiting for Peggy in that black lace mini from "In Care Of" with the 30 Rock "Blind Date" quote "You look like a fancy prostitute!"

I'm imagining Peggy saying "Everyone I ever dated in high school was either gay or a girl dressed as a guy to get a journalism scholarship." and currently on the floor with laughter.

I'm still trying to think up the perfect connection between the Don/Megan Howard Johnson's trip ("Far Away Places) and the Liz/Jack White Haven trip ("Reunion") where Jack takes on the identity of popular student Larry Braverman.

COME ON, ME, WE DON'T HAVE ALL DAY. That analysis of automobile imagery in "The Sopranos" isn't going to write itself.

How did this become my life?

"You've already made up your mind about this, haven't you?"

"Oh, you're right, Peggy! I should go for it!

"No, you're a good friend! And thank you."

Oh man, just that graphic on the first page pairing Mad Men characters to 30 Rock characters made me lose it. Tracy Jordan as Roger Sterling is just too perfect.

So's Kenneth / Bob Benson. "In five years, we'll all be working for him, or dead by his hand."

Took me forever to find the little tiny arrows on the page that let you go "back" to more pages, but some of these are pretty good!

It is of course just as bad on non-mobile. Still - this is great stuff.

Someone put up "Mad Men" crossovers with "Mean Girls" and "30 Rock"? Man, Tina's got too much time on her hands since the show ended.

There was a blog I was reading recently that recast Mad Men is a cheesy men's adventure pulp detective series.

This?

Also I finally got around to watching Season 5 commentary and have a lot to say.
posted by sweetkid at 2:23 PM on July 29, 2013


Yes!

Tell us wise one, the secrets of the commentary.
posted by The Whelk at 2:25 PM on July 29, 2013


oh that's a funny one Whelk! Good submission.

Thoughts so far on Mad Men commentary:

1) The January Jones/Guy who Plays Henry commentary is really, really interesting and sort of breaks my heart for Betty. They talk about how Betty always tries these things to be happy, like therapy, horses, affairs, etc, and when they don't work she falls back into despair. She's always trying to be happy, but she just might be one of those people who never will be. But at least she tries, which is a lot more than you can say for most people.

These are exact thoughts I have had about her so it was kind of thrilling to see January Jones talk about those things as well, as it's obviously something she's bringing to the character, and it's resonating well, at least with me.

2) Vinnie Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel are very clearly in love/lust during their commentary on Lady Lazarus. And Alexis Bledel is obviously very, very shy which is interesting. Elizabeth keeps asking her questions to tease more out of her, and she responds very gamely, and spends the rest of the time giggling to things Vinnie says, and Vinnie and Lizzie Moss keep telling each other how awesome the other was that season, and it's all very adorable.

Man that's always been Betty's thing isn't it? Nothing ever works out the way she hopes. Poor Betty.

I think a lot of the audience doesn't appreciate the trying, though.

Also I'm late on this but Vincent Kartheiser not getting an Emmy nomination for Season 6 just makes me want to kick things.

Yeah I kinda want to see Betty come through this but she doesn't seem ..able to, partly cause no one expected her or showed her how.

Yes but to be fair they did record this commentary before season 6 had started filming even... I think Betty's made some progress, which we saw in the summer camp sleeping with Don thing.
