Goodbye Mad Men, it’s been sweet

Well I don’t know about anyone else but I went through so many tissues for the last ep!  Am a very sad panda now.

And here’s to Betty Draper.  I know some people disliked her but she had so much depth and despite (or maybe because of) her many faults, I loved her, plus she was fabulous.  For so many reasons, Betty reminded me of my own mum who was born probably 15 years after Betty; being a product of her time and with the expectations and limitations of that time, she lived the only way she knew and was often misunderstood.

I’ll really miss this brilliant show which has been a part of my life for 9 years (!).

  1. I didn’t get to watch Mad Men on its original run through, but now I think I’m going to have to! Thanks to my handy little Netflix friend 🙂
    Once Chris and I are finished with Orange is the New Black, we can start working our way through Mad Men, perhaps with an appropriate cocktail in hand!

  2. I don’t download so I stopped watching mad men years ago when the later discs weren’t available at the video store. It is one of my all time favourite shows though so I think I might have to buy a boxed set when it becomes available.
    I think January Jones is an extraordinary actress. Peggy was my favourite though 🙂 Oh, and Joan is up there too. I loved them all.

  3. I find that TV series usually don’t end well, but this finale was completely brilliant. I loved it—and I can’t stop thinking about it, especially Betty’s story. I loved how her choices reflected the character we knew over all the seasons.
