Thompson on Hollywood

Things I Learned at the 'Mad Men' Season Seven Premiere, Review Roundup: "The beginning of the end" (TRAILER)

My favorite moment at the "Mad Men" Season Seven premiere: when AMC president Charles Collier asked the sprawling ensemble to rise from their seats at Hollywood's Arclight Theatre, Jon Hamm (Don Draper) and Kevin Rahm (Ted Chaough) caught sight of each other standing in the same row and waved. The Emmy-winning series is being celebrated by Time and Variety cover stories, Diane Sawyer's World News Tonight and Good Morning America before the final season of "Mad Men" debuts on April 13. (Trailer, poster and review round-up are below.)

'Top of the Lake' Finale Recap: State of Emergency

Certain episodes of television stand out not only within the course of a series, but within the course of a year. In 2012, it was the eleventh episode of “Mad Men,” titled “The Other Women” (incidentally also featuring a stunning performance from Elisabeth Moss). This year, the finale of “Top of the Lake” achieves that same skin-tingling, harshly heartbreaking, core-shaking status.
