Better late than never, I finally got to the end of this beautiful show yesterday and I’m still flabbergasted about just how masterfully the last season was crafted and the series’ top-notch quality overall.
Though «Mad Men» sometimes tended to be on the earnest, almost (almost!) dry and depressing side of things, I’ve always loved the series thanks to its social relevance, the rich characters and its on-point art direction, cinematography and music.
Where other shows fail, «Mad Men’s» seventh and last season feels fresh, positive and satisfying as hell and, above all, cathartic and extremely enjoyable. For a program that serious and ambitious, that means a lot!
So, for all the fans of inspiring storytelling, compelling drama, fine humour and perfect characters who have been living under a rock since 2007, check it out and proof me wrong.
