Why Is So Much of the Popular Criticism On Mad Men So, So Bad?

That’s the question Dara and I endeavored to answer in our back-and-forth over at Mad Men Shrugged. The dialogue thing was a new format for me, but it was a lot of fun. Hopefully we’ll get to do a few more in the future.

(Side note: Has Katie Roiphe written any cultural criticism that’s worth reading? I assume there’s a good reason why she keeps getting published in the New York Times, but between her over-obvious Mad Men essay and her egregious misreading of David Foster Wallace, I’m hard-pressed to guess at what it might be.)
