Today AMC released a tiny teaser for the upcoming season of Mad Men that's cool except that it tells me nothing, beyond showing me party pictures I have already seen.

Does this "Affair of the Year" refer to a really badass party that the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency is throwing where Sally gets high for the first time and tells her newly skinny mother Betty that she hates her?

Does this "affair" mean that Don and Joan are finally gonna do it, like I have been wanting since the series began?

Tumblr would explode in an orgiastic display of GIFs. Imagine the GIFs, everyone!

Okay, I see that Pete Campbell has sideburns now, since the show is progressing further into the '60s, which very much excites me.

I mean, Roger was taking acid in season five already, but I was hoping for bushy Anchorman moustaches all around. Soup-strainers.

Remember, Mad Men begins again on AMC Sunday, April 7, with a two-hour premiere. And yes, Art Attack will hold your hand through the whole season.

Or until Breaking Bad starts up sometime in the summer.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
