On the next episode of AMC’s Mad Men

  • Matthew Weiner torments us with a teaser trailer that tells us absolutely nothing about the next episode.
  • We curse Matthew Weiner for the random collection of clips he calls a teaser trailer.
  • We curse AMC for giving Matthew Weiner free reign to torture us with those teaser trailers.
  • We further curse AMC for splitting the final season of Mad Men in two parts.
  • Darn you, AMC.
  • Of course, splitting the season in two parts does let us have a longer period of time to look forward to Mad Men,
  • And a longer time to obsess over how it will end.

  • What is wrong with America that we embrace all these horrible anti-heroes?!
  • Can’t we just watch cute shows about philanthropic puppies?
