Unfortunately, the series is now competing against itself in terms of quality and the historical Mad Men has set the bar very high. I thought this half season was a little off the mark, bordering on soap opera-ish at times. That being said, the show is still among the best out there. Nice to see Bobby Morse display his Broadway heritage for a moment Hoping for a better conclusion in the second half of the final season.

Continuation from season six when Don was put on leave from the Ad agency after an ill timed tirade of self expose. Great writing and performances by actors who had perfected being the older but wiser characters than seasons past.

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.

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.

Season six of Mad Men takes place in the late '60s and includes actual television news coverage of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy as well as the 1968 Democratic Convention riots in Chicago. With the background of the cultural changes taking place both Don Draper's and Peggy Olson's firms continue to impress their prestigious clients. On the personal front Don is having an affair with a neighbor and Peggy and her boyfriend buy a seedy new apartment on the west side of NYC. Eventually Don and rival executive Ted Chaough decide to merge their two firms which leads to many firings and plenty of chaos. Don's drinking escalates to the point that even he realizes that he needs to change. Overall season six is filled with intense drama, humor and sadness resulting in excellent entertainment.

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.

Peggy makes her pitch to Burger Chef:

… This is the home your customers really live in. This is your dinner table. Dad likes Sinatra, son likes The Rolling Stones. The TV's always on, Vietnam playing in the background. The news wins every night. And you're starving. And not just for dinner. What if there was another table, where everybody gets what they want when they want it? It's bright and clean and there's no laundry, no telephone, and no TV. And we can have the connection that we're hungry for. There may be chaos at home, but there's family supper at Burger Chef …

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.
