AMC’s Mad Men and Breaking Bad Characters Have Twitters!

by Corey

AMC  (American Movie Channel) has become a powerhouse of a TV channel with their award winning shows Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Both critically acclaimed and arguably some of the best shows on TV not only now, but in a long time and with their extensive fan bases, it’s no surprise AMC reached out through Twitter to keep in touch with the fans; giving them some extra fun (and canon) tidbits about the shows. The twitters themselves are the characters of Breaking Bad and Mad Men tweeting to each other and to the fans. I understand the characters from Breaking Bad having Twitter accounts, but Mad Men is set in an age before the internet. I don’t mind the silliness. Check out how the twitter accounts and a Facebook fanpage for Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, the ad company the show revolves around and where the main character, Don, works.

Hank (Dean Norris, this is his first big role) and Marie (Betsy Brandt, her first major role) Schrader are the relatives to Walter White (Bryan Cranston Malcolm In The Middle) and Skylar White (Anna Gunn, Deadwood). Hank is in law enforcement as a DEA Agent, but is currently suspended. Marie is Skylar’s sister and works as a nurse and had a problem with kleptomania in the past.

Mad Men is the story of Donald Draper (Jon Hamm in his first major role) and the world of the ad man. Set in the 1960’s, Mad Men brilliantly revisits an America once draped in fear, pride, civil rights, war and many other things. Working at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with his team ad men, Draper is a brilliant mind, in the terms of advertising. His best friend, Roger Sterling (John Slattery, Iron Man 2) owns the company. Draper is married to Betty Draper (January Jones, Love Actually) but still lives  a double and extravagant lifestyle, as you can see in the two twitter accounts, which I thought was pretty cool. Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss, Get Him to the Greek) was at one time in the show Draper’s secretary, and the first to find out about his double life; her own demons, which only Don knows about, kept her quiet.

Here’s a link to the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce fan page on Facebook.

* side note: Love Actually also stars Andrew Lincoln who is now playing Rick Grimes, the main character in AMC’s newest TV show The Walking Dead.
