Mad Men Season 4, with Special Guest Stars...The Beatles!
You know what heaven's like? Heaven's like this place where you get to watch Mad Men all day, only it's being acted out right before your very eyes, although not in a "live in front of a studio audience" sort of way. It's all TV-dreamy and beautiful and there's no Jon Hamm or Vincent Kartheiser but there are John Lennon and Paul McCartney - because the MAD MEN ARE BEATLES! That's how it is heaven, and also in this post, which is our happy little way of marking Mad Men's impending arrival at a magical time called 1964.
Can you imagine how fun heaven's going to be, when you get to interact with the Mad Beatles in the midst of their Mad Beatle-ing? "Nice forward-thinking on the Admiral Television campaign, Paul McCartney!" you might say. Or, "Hey, Joan Holloway-Harris, can I get more sploshing flange on this Aqua Net mock-up?" Our favorite Mad Beatles episode is probably the one where George "Peggy Olson" Harrison gets dragged into the Belle Jolie focus group and then he and John and Paul head up to the top of the double-decker bus and George plays "Raunchy" note-perfect and Don Draper's like "All right, Peggy - you're in the band." WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE?
