Matthew Weiner Discusses the Second Season of ‘Mad Men’ on ‘Charlie Rose’


For Mad Men fanatics, there's lots to dig into in this video of Matthew Weiner, Jon Hamm, and John Slattery on The Charlie Rose Show. If you can get past Rose's traditional inability to ask interesting follow-ups, you'll be treated to hints to what aspects of Don Draper's past we'll soon learn about (19:00), what 1963 books symbolize the social change Mad Men's characters are about to go through (8:00), and how Weiner viewed the life of the women in the office as a combination of Sex and the Single Girl and The Feminine Mystique (13:00). Plus, Hamm and Slattery are hot.
