Sharing is Caring

28 Jun

Mad Men just wrapped it’s 6th season, halfway thru I found two re-cap sites that are unique and creative in Mad-men-title-cardtheir approach to re-capping.

Tom and Lorenzo – This site provides two recaps for each episode, the first focuses on the episode, discussing the themes and the character interactions etc. Their second recap, usually up by Wednesday focuses on the costumes and the style. These recaps add another layer of insight into the show, digging deep into the color palette and the deliberate costume choices Janie Bryant makes each week.

Tom and Lorenzo were the first site to notice Megan Draper was wearing the same T-shirt worn by Sharon Tate a year before she was brutally murdered by the Manson family. This lead to weeks of speculation on Megan’s fate this season.

Believe me after you read the Mad Style recaps you will never look at a TV show and the costumes the same way again.

Tom and Lorenzo also cover Fashion, I recommend checking out all the sections of their site.

The recaps on Happy Place are done as if the entire show happened on Facebook. No description I provide can possible do them justice, you will just have to click on their name to see what I mean.

As for the beloved series’ on-camera stars, the Official Gillian Anderson Website reports that the actress, who as of late has been seen on NBC’s Hannibal and BBC Two’s The Fall, will be in attendance — though TV Guide Magazine‘s published RSVP list mentions neither her nor leading man David Duchovny (currently the front man for Californication).

How long is the line for this one gonna be, folks?
