'Mad Men': John Slattery, Jon Hamm to direct episodes in season 6

Emmy Watch: 'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner breaks down his favorite scene

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to return nomination ballots, EW.com is running a series called Emmy Watch, featuring highlight clips and interviews with actors, producers, and writers whom EW TV critic Ken Tucker has on his wish list for the nominations announcement on July 19.

But no episode was more full of stellar Sterling moments than “Far Away Places,” or, as you probably know it, “The LSD Episode.”
