Mad Men Episode 401 pre-review: Don Draper Holsters his Guns and Shoots Blanks

Who is Don Draper?

It’s almost here!  The countdown will end in approximately 6 hours for the East Coast and 9 for us on the West Coast (don’t know about you folks in Canada and overseas).

I’ve seen the episode and I’m dying to discuss it…but I’ll be a good little blogger and wait to post my review.

The title of this post will be the title of my review…but it won’t have any significance until the last thirty seconds of the episode so NO SPOILERS thus far.

To hold you over, here’s some of my interviews from the Mad Men Season 4 Premiere red carpet in Hollywood. I still need to edit and upload Vincent Kartheiser, Rich Sommer and Joel Murray so stay tuned…

Aaron Staton thinks Ken Cosgrove would be in jail if he were alive today…

Christina Hendricks doesn’t remember her first TV show she did with January Jones…

Robert Morse wants to bag chicks like Don Draper…

Kiernan Shipka. is 10 1/2 going on 30…

Jared Harris blesses me…

I hope the wait was worth it for you Mad Maniacs and I’ll see you here when the episode is over!

Kiernan Shipka from Mad Men interviewed at Mad Men Season 4 Premiere in Hollywood

Lil' Cutie, huh?

I interviewed delightful cherub and child actor Kiernan Shipka on the red carpet at the Mad Men Season Four premiere event in Hollywood, California on July 20, 2010.

Let’s be clear. Kiernan is not only a fantastic actor but this video proves she is more mature and well-spoken than most adults I know. I couldn’t help but recall that Dakota Fanning sketch that Amy Poehler used to do on SNL (“I’m not familiar.”).

And I can’t look at her picture and not feel sad that she has to take so much abuse from her awful mother Betty Draper. But then after a couple seconds I remember that Mad Men is, in fact, not real and I feel much, much better.

Let’s move on. Take it away, Kiernan…

Don’t you feel sorry for her that she has to put up with jerks like me who try to get story details out of a defenseless child? She totally held her ground and rocked that rebuttal speech that the Network Gestapo (as they’re known here in the ‘Wood) coached her on. I wonder if they threatened to take away her Barbies if she told.

Just kidding. They threatened to take away her SAG award.
