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

Note on the DVD: This is the only season of Mad Men without episode commentaries.

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?

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.
