Mad Men Sympathy Rankings: The Final Verdict

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. It had me tearing up more than once and not really knowing why, and more than anything it made me think. A LOT.

Part of that thinking involved putting together my final sympathy rankings of the season. More »

This week’s episode of Mad Men certainly wasn’t short on “What in the name of the ’60s is going on?” moments, mostly (as per usual) involving Don and his gradual downward spiral. We’ll get to all that, but the part of the episode that stood out to me was the storyline involving Joan and Peggy and Avon. I love their interactions in general, and it brought up some challenging questions about feminism and women in the workforce, as well as playing with our sympathy, which is what we’re here to talk about.

Mad Men Sympathy Rankings: Season Six Predictions

Because viewers’ sympathy shifts so frequently between characters from season to season and episode to episode, Crushable is introducing the Mad Men Sympathy Rankings.
