It would make perfect sense for Mad Men to win its record-setting fifth Best Drama Emmy. And it's high time for Jon Hamm, after eight nominations for his masterful performance as the iconic Don Draper, to finally take the Best Actor prize.
Soon after graduating from law school, James Grippando worked on a number of appeals in death penalty cases, an experience that later served him in writing his first published novel, The Pardon.
A young Jon Hamm appeared on The Big Date back in 1996; a stark reminder that today’s biggest stars came from the humblest of beginnings.
Saujani is a self-proclaimed "Feminist with a capital F" and while she asks "Where are the women?," she definitely knows where they should be: EVERYWHERE.

Ask any lawyer that ever read To Kill a Mockingbird if the book influenced their decision to attend law school. More than likely, they will think about it for a few moments, smile with pride and say yes.
The paradox that surrounds high-rise apartment living is that in spite of having so many people around you, it can be lonely. And yet, the few minutes spent in the elevator, the random eye contact, the "good morning," are sometimes just enough to make a difference in my day.

The Flood is a good episode of Mad Men, especially in a Season 6 off to an uneven start. It came at a good time, too, reassuring that our characters are not all irretrievably stuck in tedious personal melodramas. That, actually, they can be very appealing people.
Mad Men is back, and I'm glad. Even though the two-part premiere episode wasn't perfect, it brought some keen acting, sharp dialogue, and stunning visuals. And it brought the show fully into the beginning of the fire that consumed the late 1960s.
