Sad Men Mad Men!

It's almost time, folks.

Almost MAD MEN time!

Yes, Mad Men is ending its 7 season run of glory this spring. I hope to have some time to write critically about the episodes but to whet your appetite, I thought I'd here collect my musings on the show and the first half of Season Seven. Feel free to enjoy and laugh at my silly predictions.

"Selling Mad Men": an introduction to both the show and my expectations for Season Seven. Published at the tragically defunct Trop.

"Sad(der) Men: Time Zones": A review of S7E1 where I (rightly) focus on Peggy's brokenness, the healing of which was one of the most important arcs of the first half of Season Seven. Also at the I-miss-you-so-much Trop.

"Sad Men Slamming Doors": S7E2 (the happy at the end episode) gets the treatment here. Written for Why-are-you-gone? Trop but turned down (for what) because they didn't want to totally devolve into a fan boy party.

"Hallucinations Belong to Everyone": Back home at Too-cool-for-this-world Trop, this first half of Season Seven wrap-up looks forward to the changes coming in the second half.

Let me know what you think!
