Christina Hendricks – Mad Men Returns

Joan Harris

Tonight on AMC – The Christina Hendricks show! …I mean Mad Men.

One of the most well-executed original shows in television history makes it’s long awaited return this Sunday evening, taking us on a meandering journey through the lives of the Madison Square advertising executives of the 60s.

The superlatives I have for this work of art is endless. Iconic, memorable, classy, smooth… and oh yes, they also have Christina Hendricks, one of the most beautiful woman alive today and my vote for the Marilyn Monroe of our generation. Heck she doesn’t even need to try.

However, as much as I worship her as the goddess amongst the mere mortals on this earth, and constantly try to find a way to switch bodies with her husband, I have a blog to maintain. So let’s focus on something more relevant to boobies.. I mean writing shall we.

Plot vs Characters

Is there a overall plot to the show? Maybe. Is there a point to the show? I don’t think so. Yet, one of my biggest regrets is ignoring watching Mad Men until its 4th season.

Without so much as a unifying plot, the characters of the show are all allowed to live their lives without the need to intersect or cross paths to form a bigger picture. Don Draper might be somewhat the star, but the show still provides brief glimpses into the somewhat tragic lives of Peggy Olson, Joan Harris, Pete Campbell, Roger Sterling and recently Megan Draper and Betty, the former Mrs Draper.

A brief glimpse, but I assure you, you will not be forgetting any of these characters soon. They are not there to be fodder to feed the ego or storyline of the main character, they are all fleshed out and oozing with personality and their own chest of secrets. I personally find Roger Sterling’s tragedy the best one of all.

Booby Trap!

If you’re here because you clicked on the picture, naughty naughty! But here’s another 121 photos of her from Mad Men. From what would seem to be a bit-role in the first season, Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) has risen to become one of the leading lights of the show, fighting against the male dominated culture of the advertising world with her own brand of guile and competencies that see her rise through the ranks. She’s not just a flower pot, she’s one of the stars.

Best song on television

No, not the theme, the fantastic performance by the French girl. If you’re interested in one of the most iconic moments in the show and television history in my opinion, click here for Jessica Pare‘s rendition of Zou Bisou Bisou.

I just hope this season doesn’t disappoint me like with recent season of Spartacus which started pretty horribly but is getting better somewhat, and the recent season of Walking Dead, which started pretty well but ended pretty horribly.

Zooby Zooby Zoo

Still one of the most sensual and mesmerising scenes I have ever seen on television. Jessica Paré is amazingly hot when she performs like this. Unfortunately, the producers did not use her more this way, focusing instead on her day to day life with Don Draper i.e.the sad, depressed, angry housewife and wannabe-actress.

Would be nice to have a few more of such highlights to open or close each episode. Pretty certain this song exploded after it appeared in Mad Men.

As for the series, I’m of the opinion that the storyline kind of meandered along for a while, starting with a few average episodes until the Lucky Strike saga and Jaguar came along. Let’s wait and see what the last season brings!

And yes, I prefer Zooby Zooby Zoo to Zou Bisou Bisou. Bite me.
