Mad Men does the ’70s
With Mad Men set to polish up its fantastic run with a jaunt into the groovy 70s in its last seven episodes starting this Sunday, we here at Le Blog have decided to make April the month of the “Me Decade.” This is already reflected in our disco-tinged site design and will continue to be addressed through our coming articles.
First up is the very sweet trailer AMC posted for Mad Men’s final half season, showing Don Draper and crowd decked out in their very finest feel good attire. Playing along with these images is Diana Ross’ easily sultry “Love Hangover,” a sneakily appropriate song for the wind down of Mad Men, with everybody possibly feeling the poor results of their passionate mistakes. This will be the first time Mad Men will be taking place at a time when I was actually alive as a person, but probably won’t feature anything I would be in danger of remembering first hand.
As the month goes on, Lebeau and friends will be sharing our own memories of the 1970s and will be interested to find out about your favorites. Look out for a new bracket game starting soon, more from my “Nope, Not a 1-Hit Wonder” series, and even more one-off articles as we celebrate the decade that brought us a startling array of the fantastic and the fantastically cheesy. Come back each day and take a step back in time…in platform shoes!
