Everybody’s working for Labor Day!

Remember what we said about new content over the summer? Er, sorry about that. But we’re back now, and ready to have fun!

Happy Labor Day, Everyone!

As summer unofficially comes to an end on this holiday weekend, we have cause the celebrate — because that means the fall TV season is just around the corner!

To ease our way out of barbecues and reruns, and back into commutes and must-see TV, we here at TYLL want to take a look at some of our favorite fictional workplaces in recent years. (We are honoring workers today, after all.)

Grab your briefcases and to-go cups, because going back to work never seemed so fun. Be sure to let us know what your favorite offices are in the comments!

Thank You Liz Lemon Team
We’re a couple of girls who really love TV, and we’re okay with that.

With only one (!) episode left until the series finale, Mad Men has a lot of loose ends to tie up — or not, as the case may be, because if there’s one thing this show has always reinforced, it’s that you don’t always get a storybook ending in life. Boy, is that ever true for Don and everyone else on the show tonight.

Nels
Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

I’d like to apologize for not posting last week’s recap. I swear I’ve been working on it, but real life has been standing in my way all week. It’s almost done, and will get posted eventually, but in the meantime, let’s jump right into tonight’s episode, shall we?

It’s the end of an era, as Sterling Cooper & Partners is officially no more. If you thought the gang would be living the dream at McCann Erickson, then you definitely haven’t been watching this show for seven years.

What’s old is new again. Some familiar faces return to Mad Men for some goodbyes, while everyone wonders what’s in store ahead. (Including yours truly.)

Mad Men 7×09 Debriefing || If you thought Don and Megan’s long-distance goodbye last year was the last you’d seen of the erstwhile Mrs. Draper, then guess again. She’s back, and despite her claims to the contrary in the first half of the season, she really does need Don to take care of her. But she hates it, so everyone suffers as a result. Meanwhile, Don’s tryst with the mysterious waitress rises to the next level, and in the process becomes even more confusing, for him and for us.

The wait is over, and Mad Men is back for its final (for real this time) episodes. Tonight kicked off a seven-week extravaganza as the last hurrah for Sterling Cooper & Partners, but if one thing’s for certain, it’s that Matthew Weiner can still leave us guessing, even this close to the finish line.

If last week’s episode of Mad Men was all about keeping up appearances, this week’s was all about miscommunication.

Mad Men is finally back after another seemingly interminable hiatus, and as you would expect, Sterling Cooper & Partners isn’t lacking on the drama front.
