Or at least, I did when I heard about it, until I saw it. The new Christina Hendricks doll is a disappointment, as it lacks the real-woman curves of the original, to say nothing of the doll’s vapid expression. But nice thought, there. You almost had a great idea, Mattel.
Christina, as you should know, plays the indomitable Joan Holloway on “Mad Men,” and she’s the single best reason to watch the show.
She was also wonderful in two episodes of “Firefly,” so it was great to see that she got some steady work after the network execs demonstrated their utter lack of taste by canceling that classic.
Beyond her looks, Christina is one awesome actress; her characters unforgettable.
