On Critic Proof, Alyssa asks Marc about his recent article on the looming “Daddy Wars.” Why aren’t men having the same conversation as women about having it all? They explore how sitcoms portray fatherhood, and focus in particular on the tragedy of 30 Rock‘s Jack Donaghy. In the wake of James Gandolfini’s recent death, they discuss the complex depiction of fatherhood on The Sopranos. Finally, they consider Don Draper’s parenting skills in the just-concluded sixth season of Mad Men. (contains spoilers)
