Mad Men Sympathy Rankings: The Final Verdict

Wow, what a show. This definitely wasn’t my favorite season of Mad Men, but last night’s season 6 finale was pretty fantastic.

Plus it has a sort of cutesy sounding title. But this is no American Dreams (yes, I’m still missing that show), or Mad Men, or whatever romantic vision of the 60s you might have. More »
