Since its inception 20 years ago, Philadelphia ad agency Gyro Worldwide has run campaigns for Boyds and Urban Outfitters and?for international enterprises Budweiser, Camel and MTV. When it wasn't busy with those accounts, Gyro created its own, like the Sailor Jerry Rum brand and the Bikini Bandits film series. That's pretty much ad business as usual - if it weren't for the fact that Gyro is so unusual. Gyro, having claimed it invented certain unconventional marketing techniques, used drag queens and murderers to advertise South Street's Zipperhead punk clothier.

Leo Mulvihill looks the classic man's man. The hat is one clue. Displaying an old-school flair for style, the 25-year-old law student at Drexel University walks around campus sporting a vintage Brooks Brothers three-piecer and authentic 1960s Florsheims, his trilby cocked just so. The elegant look from another era makes a suave statement and exudes a certain authority - evoking equal parts image and lifestyle that a growing number of young...

In 2010, there's too much too good on TV. Here are a dozen series coming up (with channel and season premiere date) that have exceptional promise, refuting those snobs who say TV is a wasteland. The emphasis is on the new, but some ace series are returning, too: Damages, FX (Returning, tomorrow). Glenn Close and Co. are joined by Martin Short and Lily Tomlin, cast against type, as one of the most tense and intricate dramas on TV starts anew. Lost, 6ABC (Returning, Feb. 2)

HOW MANY stories over the past 40 years have started this way: "Members of the Jackson family can't agree . . . " The latest feud has to do with whether Michael's three children will be part of an A&E reality show titled "The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty. " Unfortunately, the title "Mad Men" was taken. An Us Weekly source says that the program will include the MJ Three, even though eldest sister Rebbie (who will not take part) says that Michael would never have let it happen.

A cascade of blond hair, an exhalation of cigarette smoke, the promise of erotic bliss. That's how April (Kate Winslet) first appears to Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Revolutionary Road. Sam Mendes' devastating if flawed adaptation of the Richard Yates novel is, in part, the pipe dream of a gypsy who marries an admirer and sets up camp in the Connecticut suburbs of the 1950s. When the tobacco is extinguished what comes between April and Frank Wheeler is bigger, colder and more formidable than the iceberg that sundered Kate and Leo in Titanic: shattered hope.

The big-buzz Sundance movie "An Education" is set in 1961, and as acolytes of "Mad Men" can tell you, that's no insignificant detail. It's a year that finds the West poised on the edge of enormous change - as a woman in "A Serious Man" (also set in the 1960s) puts it, it's a time when forward-looking people can take advantage of "the new freedoms. " Change is in the wind in "An Education," the story of an exceedingly bright prep schoolgirl named Jenny (Oscar nom shoo-in Carey Mulligan)

SO MUCH television, so little time: Even if zombies didn't already make me nervous - when you're a TV critic, you don't need anything else nibbling away at your brain - the ratings for Sunday's premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" would probably have caused a slight shudder. I don't begrudge AMC a single one of the 5.3 million viewers who tuned in for Frank Durabont's smart but grisly adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic-book series, which really begins to get interesting (for me, at least)

AFTER Tuesday's Supreme Court decision on affirmative action, we have a better idea why "Mad Men" is such a popular TV show. The series, set in the '60s, doesn't strike a note of nostalgia for the fashions, the glamour or the incessant smoking, but for the period in the country when actual progress was being made. Consider some of the milestones of the '60s: the court's Brown v. Board of Education decision, which prohibited segregated schools; the Civil Rights Act that outlawed discrimination; the enforcement of affirmative action for the first time; the Voting Rights Act; and the war on poverty, to name just a few. It was a time of high ideals and strong leaders who pushed the country to reach for racial, social, civic and financial equality.

"MAD MEN" STAR Christina Hendricks (secretary Joan Holloway) is going to be making a lot of men mad. TV Guide reports she will marry Geoffrey Arend ("Trust Me") Oct. 11 in Manhattan. "It's exciting," Hendricks said. "I'm wearing a beautiful Carolina Herrera dream gown. " It's exciting for her? Few women on TV can fill out a gown like Hendricks. Arend will wear a Brooks Brothers tuxedo to the small ceremony, but no one will notice. Hopefully Hendricks and Arend will have better luck in wedlock than Usher and Tameka Raymond.
