Five reasons to be excited for season six of Mad Men

Tonight marks the season six premiere of AMC's "Mad Men", and I'll be watching because it's totally one of those shows where if I don't, I feel like everyone is judging me.

Thankfully, I got into the show last year and I actually like it, so my excitement for tonight's premiere is genuine — especially after watching the actors discuss where their characters left off in season five (video at right). Here are five reasons why I'm looking forward to tonight's premiere.

Mad Men spoilers for season 5 ahead.

Lip-syncing, the Super Bowl, and Mad Men are on our minds this week.

Beyonce lip-synced?

The Inauguration happened, but you might not know it because everyone's been talking about Beyonce and how she may have lip-synced the National Anthem. I love Bey, and I don’t much care if she lip-synced, but apparently a lot of people do. Amid Beyonce-bashing, several articles rebutted the claim, while others said Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, AND the choir performed to a pre-recorded track, in addition to singing live. The reason I think people care so much is because if Beyonce lip-synced, she’ll have been the first person ever in the history of the world to have done so. Wait, that’s right, Yo-Yo Ma didn’t play live at the 2009 Inauguration; I don’t even need to mention Ashlee Simpson. Beyonce’s camp hasn’t responded publicly, and I think it’s because she’s too busy hanging out with her close personal friends, the Obamas, and swimming in her champagne-filled pool. (Probably.)

This week: a unique Mad Men-inspired video, an embarrassing baseball error and the stir around Michelle Obama's nails.

Mad Men Rickroll

A comedian compiled dozens of one-word clips of "Mad Men" scenes to create a whole "music video" to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." Enjoy. And don't say I didn't warn you.

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention has caused quite a stir, but not just for political reasons. Apparently women everywhere are clamoring over the nail polish she wore during the speech, which turned out to be...well, read the article.

Baseball error

Awkward Rockies error

It's one of the easiest parts of the game: the catcher just has to throw the ball back to the pitcher after each pitch. But in this case, the pitcher missed the catch, allowing the Braves to score an unearned run and, ultimately, win the game.


Have a great weekend, everyone!
