Well will you lookit what Vulture dragged in? It’s a new poster promoting the fourth season of Mad Men:
I mean, I could try and prattle on about the way the washed-out New York City backdrop recalls the striking minimalism of Mad Men‘s glorious opening credits, but I’m too distracted by Don Draper pensively staring out the window (which, like Don Draper doing absolutely anything, is sexual catnip) and the fact that the fourth season premiere is so close (JULY 25TH!), so let’s just leave it with the fact that this poster has my SQUEE!s of anticipation rapidly approaching SQUEE!CON 1 (Catastrophic Ear Bleeds Imminent).
Besides, I’m still mourning over the recent retirement of Amanda Bynes, actress extraordinaire. Now we’ll never find out what zany hijinks Daphne Reynolds gets herself into in What a Girl Wants 2: Bangers-and-Mash Boogaloo, so LET ME WEEP IN PEACE!
Oh, and in tangentially-related-to-this-poster Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner news, irresponsible recaps will most certainly be returning for the fourth season of Mad Men, so rejoice! Now in case you’re uninitiated and in need of knowing what sort of half-crazed, frequently camp beast you’re in for (or you’re just in the mood for a trip down a particularly batshit stretch of Mad Men memory lane), I’ve collected the entirety of the third season’s recaps (along with their corresponding episodes) after the jump:
- A Day Late and a Beef Bourguignon Short, We Finally Have a Mad Men Recap! (Season 3, Episode 1: “Out of Town”)
- Of Pepsi Ads, Peggy, and Pregnancy Dresses (S. 3, Ep. 2: “Love Among the Ruins”)

Really, when you think about it, they’re like the half-lucid musings of a rabid drag queen, and is that something you and all your friends really want to be missing out on? No, I think not.
Much love to Michael Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly‘s The Ausiello Files for breaking this one.
