Ever since the Party Down series finale, the TV landscape has been as bleak as, well, commercial radio. But fear not, intrepid couch potato: Mad Men is back. To celebrate (as we’re apt to do), we’re going completely overboard with our Mad Men coverage. Yes, it’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Men Takeover. We talk to an indie band called The Don Drapers. We excerpt the Mad Men Footnotes book, teach you how to stock your bar and look at Hollywood’s relationship with smoking. We have videos of the best Mad Men parodies, a vintage ads gallery and a hilariously cheesy recruitment video Jon Hamm did for the University of Missouri. We even have a GIF gallery in tribute to the infamous Lawn Mower Scene, simply because it was worth revisiting. And, to prove to that when we say overboard, we mean overboard, we have our 140 Favorite Tweets from Mad Men characters. All this, and more. Peruse at your leisure; we’ll be drinking scotch.
