‘Mad Men’ Minus January Jones Is As Glorious As You’d Imagine It Would Be

By 10.26.11

You know how you love Mad Men but just about every scene with January Jones/Betty Draper can be a grueling ordeal to get through? As long as I’ve watched the show I’ve found myself thinking the solution would be to either keep her half clothed (a la X-Men: First Class, which didn’t satisfy some people who know a thing or two about leaving people dissatisfied) or just writing her in less and less (a la last season). Well, new comedy site Jest (that uses a video player remarkably similar to College Humor’s) has taken this idea to a whole new level with their new Mad Men DVD Extras original. They’ve just shopped her out altogether!

I’m still trying to decide if I like the idea of casting no one in her place or Don’s first wife just being a figment of his imagination better, but I do know I can quickly rattle off a list of characters I’d like to see received the same treatment ASAP:

  • Boardwalk Empire’s Margaret Schroeder
  • Sons of Anarchy’s Tara Knowles
  • Dexter’s Debra Morgan
  • Game of Thrones’ Catelyn Stark

I could go on for a while. I guess this either means wives and sisters are written super annoyingly in TV dramas or I’m a raging closeted sexist. Since I like all the females in my favorite comedies I’m going to go with the former. Enjoy the Betty Draper-lessness after the jump…
