I watched the first season on Netflix and never got into it. It's crazy popular though, so I dunno, guess it's just not my thing
Any Don Draper fans in the house? This might be the best show ever.
Thoughts on the series and where it is going?
I think I've seen 95% of the episodes, and I've liked it the most during seasons 2, 4, and 5. Guess it's not for everybody.
There have been episodes where I've sat there for 25 minutes, wondering "What is the point of all this??" But they paid off in the end.
I'm a massive fan of the show, as you may be able to tell ^^.
I loved this past season. So many memorable scenes. I love how the big shocker (Lane's death) wasn't the final act, and that we were left wondering whether the old Don was coming back. Personally, I think he's turned off by Megan using him to appear in the commercial. And I imagine he responded to the bar woman's "Are you alone?" question with something along the lines of "not anymore."
The past season was great. I miss it like a best friend who's just moved away.
I loved the fact that Don spent an entire year being faithful to his wife. I expected some big drama with him cheating on poor, "sweet" Megan, with him revealing his identity theft to her, and with Joan telling Roger that her kid was his. But those things were not any big plotlines at all.
Matthew Weiner keeps you guessing.
Yeah, it was cool that the final episode wasn't the one with the "big event". It was more subtle.
So, IS the old Don back?? Great question. I thought the scene brought up two notions:
That Don will now be acting like a single man again.
That Don is truly alone in this world, especially now that Megan seems to be more of a user...
And who knows, maybe Don and Peggy will happen?? I hope Peggy stays on the show. Or Don and Joan? That looked possible a few episodes ago.....

One thing that bothered me: The four episodes I saw seemed so humorless. Even in a hard neighborhood like that, people have laughs in daily life. So the show wore on me a bit.
