I always found watching this series very calming. It's like watching a soap opera with a brain. I've seen every season multiple times. Jon Hamm, no great shakes as a actor was perfect for the shallow haunted Don Draper. I envy people that haven't seen this yet.

I don't agree with how all the storylines wrapped up but it's still a great show with fantastic period costumes and incredibly detailed production design.

And so we say goodbye. "Mad Men" have had to a patient lot, as there have often been considerable gaps between seasons and they split the final into two parts. Part one was good, if occasionally wobbly, but part two ends it in fine fashion. Wrapping up an influential and beloved show is tricky, but for the most part, they pull it off. It feels more focused then some previous seasons with the story coming back to the core characters: Don, Peggy, Joan, Roger, Pete. By now it should be clear that Joan and Peggy are the most compelling characters and they both get a good chunk of screen time. Don is more incidental to the plot, as he spends much of the series in California. As always, the style, clothes, and design are terrific, even as the show's entering the uglier 70s. One of the defining shows of our time.

When watching this final season Part 2 of Mad Men I kept thinking "Where are they going with this?". The show does wrap things up quite nicely, but maybe a little too rushed (that's to be expected sometimes when you know this is your final season) especially with Peggy and Joan. I did like the closure with Pete and of course Don Drapers. They invested most of their time into the lead character and in my opinion was a good ending.

This was a good end to the series, but not tremendous. Something just seemed to be missing, it was anti-climactic. Visually, this is definitely the best looking series of all time! I was seduced by the '60s fashion. But, I could never get as hooked into this series as I do with Breaking Bad, for example.

It just seemed to be lacking the flair and connectedness earlier seasons had. Everyone ends up going their separate ways without goodbyes and the ones that do occur seem trite and impersonal given everything these characters have been through together. I can understand where Don ended up. But how he chose to deal with family issues made no sense. Nice to see the Coke commercial again even though it's about as healthy as doctor's used to believe smoking was.

One of the truly hallmark series in television history, I'm sorry to see it go. Consistently well written throughout its run.
