Bravo to season 7 of Mad Men – it has been excellent thus far. I have to admit, seasons 5 and 6 were hit and miss, but each frame of season 7 has been crafted to maximize themes and character growth, and thus, robustly fill out the overall storyline.
I love this show because it’s like spending time with people you know. Life isn’t a pre-scripted story arc; it’s seemingly random until it isn’t. Mad Men captures this dynamic, as evidenced by every moment of this final season.
