This week, ShortList talks Mad Men with Jon Hamm, while Ellen DeGeneres imagines what Mad Men would be like without cigarettes. Plus, Kiernan Shipka discusses playing a Disney mermaid. Read on for more:
• Jon Hamm tells ShortList that Mad Men’s vaunted secrecy when it comes to scripts and plotlines makes the show “very retroactive” because “we live in a culture right now where everything is available, always.”
• In honor of the Great American Smokeout, Ellen takes a look at what Mad Men would be like without the smoking.
• A.V. Club continues its reviews of Mad Men’s Season 1 episodes, awarding an A- to “Marriage of Figaro.”
