Talkback: 'Mad Men' - 'The Milk and Honey Route'

What did everybody think of the series' penultimate episode?

As mentioned earlier in the week, I should be traveling home from my vacation at the time you read this, which means I haven't yet seen tonight's "Mad Men." I hope to write a review at some point tomorrow in the late morning or early afternoon, but in the meantime, I wanted to offer up this place for you guys to discuss it.

Ask Alan, Episode 7: Binge-scheduling 'Aquarius' & potential summer catch-ups

Will NBC's plan for the David Duchovny drama mean the end of traditional scheduling?

It's much later than planned — though at least in time for me to finally get the ol' "Veronica Mars" poster hung up in my new office space — but it's time for another installment of Ask Alan. The hope — and we mean it this time — is to get these videos back on a bi-weekly schedule.

Scott Glenn on 'Daredevil': 'I live, for an old man, a pretty adolescent life'

How 'The Leftovers' finally put the veteran character actor on TV

Scott Glenn has spent 35-plus years playing the toughest of tough men. Since his breakthrough performance as John Travolta's rival in "Urban Cowboy," he's played astronauts ("The Right Stuff"), cowboys ("Silverado"), vengeful bodyguards (the original "Man on Fire"), submarine commanders ("The Hunt For Red October") and FBI agents ("The Silence of the Lambs"), among other jobs, always looking lean, weathered, and alert of everything around him.

'Inside Amy Schumer' director on '12 Angry Men' spoof: 'It was something she was incredibly passionate about'

How John Hawkes, Jeff Goldblum, Paul Giamatti and company helped recreate the classic film
This morning, I published my interview with Amy Schumer about tonight's "12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer" parody, which focused on the origins and themes of the episode-length sketch. Now it's time to hear from Ryan McFaul, who co-directed the episode with Schumer, and who speaks more about the technical end of things, including which parts of the Sidney Lumet film they were and weren't able to work into their episode.

Amy Schumer on her '12 Angry Men' spoof: 'I'm more proud of it than anything I've ever done'

How 'Inside Amy Schumer' wound up doing an all-star parody of the iconic movie

We know that "Inside Amy Schumer" can do great parodies, and it can do biting social commentary, and that it has a gift for hiding the latter inside the former. That's been apparent throughout its run, and early in the Comedy Central sketch show's great third season, which has featured a dead-on "Friday Night Lights" parody that was really about rape culture, as well as last week's "One Direction" spoof about women who don't need makeup.

Vacation note: After these messages, we'll be right back

Unplugging for a few days before upfronts, the final "Mad Men," etc.

Hey all, just a heads-up to let you know I'll be taking the rest of this week off for a much-needed vacation and what will hopefully be a complete unplugging from the interwebs.

I wrote a handful of posts in advance that will run during my absence (several of them today, in fact), but anything I haven't already seen will be skipped, review-wise. (So tonight's "Agents of SHIELD" will be covered, since I already saw it, while "The Flash" won't, because I haven't.) We'll have a pinch-hitter covering "Game of Thrones" on Sunday night, and I've also set up a talkback post so you guys can discuss the penultimate "Mad Men," which I won't be seeing or writing about until Monday.

Play nice without me, okay?
