Mad Men is a critically-acclaimed show that helped put AMC on the map and yet the powers that be at the network and showrunner Matthew Wiener can’t seem to agree on terms for a fifth season. This week, Joel Murphy and Lars look at the three reported sticking points that are keeping these two sides from working out a deal.
They also discuss a strange celebrity auction item, the Natalie Portman ballet “scandal” and the fact that they are both perpetually stuck in the 90s. Then the dynamic duo introduces you to another person you should know, the lovely Patricia Clarkson, and bring back their popular Box Office Preview segment.
What strange item is up for sale in an online auction? Does Natalie Portman deserve her Oscar if she didn’t actually perform all of the ballet moves in Black Swan? Can Joel and Lars have an entire Mad Men discussion without mocking Matthew Wiener’s last name? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
