Lena Dunham has said “Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting”. Ok, don’t write in a token character, write five or ten great characters of color.– Why I Wrote a Mad Men Episode With Negroes by Erika Alexander | Showbiz Is Glamorous

I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you."
To see Don Draper, still working and trying to sell digital ad space, based on laser-targeted focus group and audience segmentation, would truly be a sight to behold. Of course, one gets the feeling that Weiner is more interested in looking at how the Jon Hamm-portrayed character would have handled the coming decades and changes in his life, not technological changes in his industry.
I’ve been working my way through Mad Men again lately. Started it back when it originally premiered, but it’s hard to find time to sit down and watch it. I really dig these posters designed by Radio.
