    Madman Season 6

    With the finale this Sunday I was wondering how everyone thinks this show is going to end. This season started off slow but the last 4 episodes have been great.

    Mad Men?

    This is season finale, not series.

    Re: Madman Season 6

    How are they going to wrap a show up in 1 more season of 15? episodes...if that....from 1968 into ? I read where the creator will show Draper as he is nearing the end. Unless the end is at 45 with a cocktail in one hand and a new secretary on the other.

    Re: Madman Season 6

    There is one more season.

    I personally have been a bit disappointed with the last two seasons of Mad Men. The show got a little boring when Draper stopped caring about the business and Sterling was in his angry phase. That's good character development, but the problem is that after they broke off, they never had a strong supporting cast to pick up the slack. Ginsberg could have been an amazing character if one thinks back to his interview. But since then, they've made him out to be a dark, irritable annoyance when he could have been a tremendous asset as comedic relief.

    While Draper and Sterling both have regained a little bit of their original edge, and the merger story arc has helped the show a little bit, the show needs to find an edge again IMHO.

    I do think Draper winds up re-marrying Betty when all is said and done. It feels like they've continually teased that on again and off again for the last three seasons.

    I predict that someone's going to drink. Someone will cheat on their spouse. Someone will shut their office door. Someone will face an existential crisis.

    I would like the series to end with Don is caught with another woman by his new wife: Mary Richards and it shows Mary driving off to Minneapolis with a still smoking gun in the passenger seat of her Mustang.

    Re: Madman Season 6

    I think season 5 was great and this season started off bad to me but last 4-5 episodes I've loved.

    I don't think Don and Betty will ever get back together.

    Typing error about finale. I know there is another season.

    The feeling I get from this season starting with the first episode is they are telling the story backwards and it picks up in real time with the strange girl from the bar. I think that's the end of Dons 2nd marriage.

    I thought this season started out great, kind of dipped in the middle, and became really good again in these last few episodes.

    So..... thoughts on the finale? I thought it was great. Don's rock bottom will lead to his possible redemption.

    Who knows. Weiner is a Sopranos alum and that show preached that how many life changing experiences you go through, people don't change. As many experiences Don has gone through - including a near-death one this year - he really hasn't changed.

    Good observation, but what does that really mean for this show? Which Don is the Don that doesn't change? the kid who grew up in the *****house? the scared/cowardly soldier? the laid back Dick Whitman we saw in California? the eager fur coat salesman? the self-interested creative director of a New York ad agency?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    One could say they are all the same person. Take little Dick Whitman for instance. He lost his virginity to a hooker who had a beauty mark on her face and mothered him back to health. Flash forward to the late 50s where he did the oatmeal ad where the mother had a beauty mark on her face. Go forward several more years and he has an affair with Sylvia who has that beauty mark on her face and is a mother.

    The scared/cowardly soldier? Don's first instinct when things go off the rails for him is to either run and/or creates something new out of the ashes. When Pete told him he know he was really Dick Whitman, his first instinct was to run away with Rachel Menken. She realized that he was a coward and dumped him. The Brits plan to sell Sterling-Cooper to McCann-Erickson, Don runs from that - which was a pretty brave thing - and creates a new agency. Don can't get Chevy so he merges with CGC to create another agency.

    Laid-back Dick? We still see it from time to time. It's usually when he goes out to California.

    The eager fur-coat salesman? We see that most every time he's pitching an ad to a client or potential client. Or we see it when he gets involved with a woman.

    Self interested creative director? We saw that in spades all season. One could say that every time he does something big, it's in his interests only. They may turn out for the best but he doesn't do it for anyone but himself. He and the rest of Sterling-Cooper would have been fine working for Duck but Don - and to a lesser extent, Duck himself - blew that up. He would have been fine working for McCann-Erickson but he thought he would be better off starting another agency. Not anyone else but himself. The merger, the firing of Jaguar, trying to move out to California, having the Hershey account go up in flames, showing up at the office and meetings wherever and whenever he feels like it. Almost everything he does is in his own self-interest.

    As for what's going to happen next season, only Weiner knows. I could see them fast forward in the last episode ala Six Feet Under and show Don through the years until he dies in the 80s or 90s but that would be a blatant rip-off of SFU and I think Weiner would want to put his own stamp on the series. If I were a betting man, I would say that the last we see of Don will be similar to what we saw of Don in the first episode but perhaps some of his foibles will be muted somewhat.
