Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Mad Men, Plus Special Guest Joel McHale and Community

To close out a busy week of Hollywood Prospectus podcasting from actual Hollywood, Chris Ryan and I took the time to break down the Season 5 premiere of Mad Men. What is it that makes the stylish show better than anything else on TV? And how much of it involves Jessica Paré singing in French? Then the celebrity quotient was raised considerably (although the number of microphones remained stuck at two) when Community star Joel McHale dropped by for a wide-ranging, occasionally strange, and mostly very funny discussion of his culty comedy’s survival chances, his Seattle sports fandom, and what, exactly, is wrong with my hair. (The McHale segment begins at 22:25, for those who still want to avoid Mad Men spoilers.)
