‘Mad Men’ Hookup – Jon Hamm Speaks…

 

There has been little news on the upcoming Mad Men season five beyond the release date, and that’s the way the shows creator Matthew Weiner likes it as he continues his reign as the Bill Belichick of TV production. Roger Sterling especially might remember the term “Loose Lips Sink Ships” but in this case I suppose it would be more along the lines of “Slipped Spoilers Mars MadMen” that’s being enforced.

That being said, a lot of extrapolation is coming out of comments made by Jon Hamm about the upcoming season, and the potential for relations between Don Draper and Christina Hendricks’ Joan.

It’s the pairing that fans of the show have most been salivating for as Don and Joan seem to be the two most likely candidates to hook up, but somehow always keep their worlds apart, or at least their bedspreads. Personally I don’t see it happening this season.

They are the Mulder and Scully of Mad Men and I fully expect the writers to dangle their sexual tension in front of us for as long as possible. Hopefully it won’t take a big screen adaptation for them to almost kiss before Joan is stung by an africanized bee carrying the alien invaders mind control virus and then you get stuck with a lame mouth-to-mouth resuscitation as a substitute type scenario, but that just seems silly and something that respectable writers would never do. {cough cough}

I wouldn’t expect any more Mad Men related “slips” before the premiere on March 25th, but be sure to remember to set your DVR’s an hour early as the show will debut with a two-hour episode starting at 9 PM instead of its regular 10 PM air time.

Got it?
