Special Episode: Mad Men Series Wrap Up

Mad Men is over! If anything deserves a Practically Culture episode, it’s this series. We invite old friend Shannon to the show to talk about the season finale, the season, and the series as a whole.

Who were our MVPs? Worst characters? Most underrated? 

And where does Mad Men rank in the history of TV series? (Meaning: is it better or worse than Breaking Bad?)

Let’s rock!

Mad Max: Fury Road, Pitch Perfect 2, Misery Loves Comedy, Still Alice, Slow West, Weekend Picks

Another big double-review episode! This week we double barrel with Fury Road and Pitch Perfect 2. Which is more accessible? Which one better for those already fans of the franchise?

Bob mini reviews Comedy Loves Misery, and we have a couple movies with second mini reviews: Bob with Still Alice, and Logan with Slow West.

In weekend picks, TV is still in a late-spring wasteland, and Bob’s looking at maybe Tomorrowland, maybe When Marnie Was There, maybe something else. Keep an eye on Twitter for our final pick.

Let’s rock!

Far From the Madding Crowd, Togetherness, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Weekend Picks

We review Far From the Madding Crowd this week. It’s from a Nineteenth Century British novel. Will that lead to some surprises in how we review it? Can anyone match Carey Mulligan’s shy smile?

Bob mini reviews Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and HBO’s Togetherness.

In weekend picks, Logan encourages you to make your peace with the coming Mad Men finale, and Bob narrows down the plentiful movies week to Mad Max: Fury Road and Pitch Perfect 2. Keep an eye out on Twitter for our final pick.

Let’s rock!

Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ex Machina, The Americans, Weekend Picks

It’s a dual full movie review episode! Avengers: Age of Ultron is what everyone’s talking about, so we are too. What does it take for a comic book movie to get 5 stars? How do we feel about what Joss Whedon brings to the table? We also review Ex Machina, which, whatever else you might say, scores the big sci-fi point of staying with you after you watch it.

Logan mini reviews season 3 of The Americans, which he says keeps getting better.

In weekend picks, Logan gives us the week off but says, hey, go back and check out Happyish if you didn’t. So far so good after just an episode. Bob’s torn between Far from the Madding Crowd and . . . that Chris Evans* movie. Look for the final pick on twitter.

Let’s rock!
