Mad Men marathon this Sunday

There was a real conundrum for Mad Men last Sunday night. Did you watch the Emmys and see Mad Men win as Outstanding Drama Series or were you tuned in to watch latest episode from Season Three? Of course, most of you reading are DVR owners and could watch one live and record the other, but watching an award show after you know the winners is a little like watching sports when you know the results.
Well, if a Mad Men fan has missed any episodes this season, or if they're piled up on the DVR/Tivo queue, making you feel guilty for not keeping up, here's an out. AMC is going to show a Mad Men Season Three marathon on Sunday, September 27, starting at 10 a.m. All six episodes will air up to the premiere of the last, episode seven, at 10 p.m.
Even though I'm all caught up with Mad Men, I'm going to tune in. I love when networks like AMC stack up the shows and give you the time to sit back and immerse yourself in the series all at once. It's like buying the DVD set for a series, only cheaper, as long as you don't mind the commercial interruptions.
If you watch, here's a dozen things to watch for:
• Dick Whitman's birth.
• Sally Draper learning to drive.
• Pete and Trudy Campbell doing the Charleston.
• Peggy's one-night stand.
• The wedding invitation.
• Joan singing Cole Porter.
• Duck in a turtleneck.
• A Hooker in Sterling Cooper.
• Sal's imitation of Ann-Margret.
• Roger in black-face.
• Betty and a Barbie.
• Don in a London Fog.
