    Interview with Mad Men Editor Tom Wilson

    Interview with Mad Men Editor Tom Wilson

    Hey there, long time no talk Mad Men, huh?  I’m here to officially say that we’re not going to be doing the Mad Men retrospective we discussed on the wrap up podcast.  Bummer, I know, but!  We do have a cool piece of content that was going to be part of that coverage, a behind the scenes interview with Mad Men editor Tom Wilson, which we recorded very shortly after the series concluded.  Tom worked on 25 episodes of Mad Men during his time with the show, and has also worked on episodes of Rome, Halt and Catch Fire, and Castle to name a few. I’m very sorry to our fans and to Tom that this is so late getting out, but it has too many great tidbits and background info for Mad Men fans to keep locked up in our vault forever.

    Well, now it’s the time for teary good byes and fond farewells.  Except, we’re still going to be releasing podcasts about Mad Men for another, oh, eight months or so…

    Tune in and found out our thoughts on the ending of Mad Men, the future of our Mad Men coverage, who’s “okay” and who’s “not okay”, our favorite episodes, songs, and seasons, and how Mad Men stacks up against it’s Golden Age of Television competition.  We’ll be back in a few days or weeks with an interview of Tom Wilson, editor of “Person to Person” among many other classic Mad Men episodes, which you can pass on some questions to using our contact links below.  And starting in June, be on the lookout for our season by season retrospective coverage of Mad Men.  Hope we see you there!

    714 – “Person to Person”

    714 – “Person to Person”

    Jim and A.Ron think the end of the finale episode of AMC’s Mad Men, entitled “Person to Person”, leaves a lot of room for interpretation, for both cynicism and optimism…

    Support Bald Move:  Amazon  |  Club Bald Move

    What was our take? A little bit of both, to be honest. Listen to hear us talk about how we felt watching Mad Men come to a close, the parts that tugged our heart strings, the parts that had us squealing like school girls, saying our goodbyes to our favorite characters, and paying our ultimate respects to one Matthew Weiner. Thank you for making this excellent show, sir. That might be all for Mad Men, but it is most definitely NOT the last you’ve heard from the Happy Hour. Tune in next week for a series wrap up podcast, and also to hear news for our plans with Mad Men in the months to come. See you then!

    713 – “The Milk and Honey Route”

    713 – “The Milk and Honey Route”

    Jim and A.Ron are here to help you sort through the complex feelings we’re all getting at the prospect of Pete getting the happiest of potential Mad Men endings, as we unpack the tragic and yet strangely hopeful penultimate episode entitled “The Milk and Honey Route”…

    Support Bald Move:  Amazon  |  Club Bald Move

    We discuss small town hustles, German cannibalism, Betty’s dignity and grace in the face of genuine crisis — no, really! — Sally’s forced evolution into the role of mother, and Duck’s high stakes game of career poker with Pete, Pete trading in the Pit for a life of redemption and bliss reunited with his family in Wichita, and Don finally embracing the hobo lifestyle that has called out to him since his boyhood. It’s a terrific, complex, moving episode that sets us up beautifully for the end. We’ll be with you the whole way, not just next week for the finale, but the week after too, as we indulge in a series finale podcast spectacular. See you then!

    712 – “Lost Horizon”

    Jim and A.Ron here to dish on the latest episode of AMC’s Mad Men, “Lost Horizon”…

    Support Bald Move:  Amazon  |  Club Bald Move

    We discuss Joan’s heroic stand against truly awful institutions, Weiner’s strong troll face, debate Don’s intentions towards “Birdie”, Peggy blowing the doors clean off the hinges of the McCann Erickson office, Roger’s roller derby, lots of great feedback from fellow fans, and much more. Two more to go, people! Savor it!

    Special thanks to Tara P. for graciously curating and providing this awesome Spotify link that has all of the music from Mad Men! And it’s in chronological order by episode… wow!

    711 – “Time and Life”

    711 – “Time and Life”

    Hello there! Would you care to discuss the latest Mad Men, episode 711, “Time and Life”? Well, you’ve come to the right place, friend…

    Support Bald Move:  Amazon  |  Club Bald Move

    We discuss Lane Pryce directing the latest Pete Punch, Peggy and Stan’s epic summit on gender relations, how it feels to root for Pete (“not great, Bob!”), the Weiner’s judo move he pulled on us as the audience, and where we’re going entering the back half of the back half of season seven. All this, and tons of superb feedback from what is in our humble opinion the greatest fan community on the internet, and much, much more. See you again next week!
