Mad Men
Returning for its sixth season, Mad Men explores the glamorous and ego-driven 'golden age' of advertising in late 1960s New York City. Don Draper and the rest of the cast continue to captivate as they deal with the aftereffects of adultery, divorce, a merger, and an ever-changing social climate.

Transitional story lines reflect the cultural changes used a backdrop for the show. Still a top, character-based series.

The best or second best season in mho. Lot's of personal crisis and hanky panky with thought provoking messages. Don't miss Cosgrove's tap dancing performance.

Have to agree with cdsrus. Just another soap opera. In past seasons the characters were dynamic and plot lines were inventive. Now, what counts for drama is someone gaining or losing an account. To pad out the account dramas the writers bring in romance or basic character conflicts, and we are treated to seeing how the characters react to historical events. And am I the only one who thinks Jessica Pare has no depth or acting skills?

Great Series, love to look back at the way that life was different in the 1960's but a lot of it is the same as now. Great Story, Great Characters, Great Actors. Just read that Season 7 is in the making.

This show gives me a migraine now when I watch it. It's very dark, depressing, the characters have been slow to evolve, and everything is predictable and recycled. Roger hasn't changed, Jane is barely seen, Peggy has only grown slightly stronger, Don's marriage to Megan is predictable, Pete's marriage is too, etc... As usual, Don has regrets and struggles with his past. Big yawn. After watching the final episode I really don't care what happens to any of these people. No one is particularly likeable except for maybe Jane.

'Mad Men' is just as great as ever. The first 7 episodes are good but things really picked up in the last half of the season. Episodes 8 and 9 really pack a wallop, with January Jones' character growing and coming into her own this season, albeit as a somewhat more cynical woman. 10-13 are almost as good. I can't wait to see what happens with Mr. Draper and Co. Btw, John Slattery, as Roger Sterling, is priceless. I also don't think I've ever 'hated' Don Draper as much as I did this season. Yet......we're given more reason to empathize at the same time. Still, the suggestion that one's childhood is an excuse for behavior gets old when the adult behavior is so atrocious. There's no excuse for being a mad man. Make yourself new and improved and get on with it! ;)

Perhaps I am becoming jaded but it appeared that this season of Mad Men did not live up to the past seasons. If anything it became more soap-operaish.

Betty lost all her weight after Henry decided to run for Congress. During one of the family's trip to a summer camp, Don met Betty at a gas station ...
[Don strokes Betty's face]
Betty: What are you doing?
Don: Waiting for you to tell me to stop.
[They kiss]
Betty: What did you think when you saw me?
Don: That you are as beautiful as the day I met you.

Don: The greatest thing you have working for you is not the photo you take or the picture you paint; it's the imagination of the consumer. They have no budget, they have no time limit, and if you can get into that space, your ad can run all day.

Don: I never wanted to be the man who loves children, but... from the moment they're born... that baby comes out, and you act proud and excited, hand out cigars... but you don't feel anything, especially if you had a difficult childhood. You want to love them, but you don't. And the fact that you're faking that feeling makes you wonder if you father had the same problem. Then they get older, and you see them do something, and you feel that feeling that you've been pretending to have. You feel like your heart is going to explode.
