MAD MEN: Op Art in Roger Sterling’s office

Tonight’s episode of Mad Men (Season 4, Episode 2) paints (ha!) another 60s cultural reference before our eyes without giving even a tiniest hint at who or what it is. Here’s your general answer: Op Art. Here’s my educated guess: Bridget Riley.

Mad Men back in business next year

The tough negotiations between AMC and Matthew Weiner are over, and Mad Men has been renewed for two more seasons, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Under the new deal, which will reportedly earn Weiner $10 million U.S. per year, no cast members have been fired, but a compromise has been reached regarding each episode’s run time. According to the Times, the first and last episodes of the season will each run 47 minutes long, while the rest of the episodes will be 45 minutes – although Weiner will have the option to make those episodes slightly longer for DVD or iTunes sales. Season 5 is expected to debut in March 2012.

Although the new contract covers Seasons 5 and 6, Weiner revealed that he intends to end Mad Men after seven seasons. “I want the show to end before the machinery has worn out.”
