Don't be so sad. AMC will be rerunning that series for years to come.

Man was I off on that prediction. It wasn't ever a Sears bag since it had Penneys on the side!

It will become a classic. PhDs and documentaries will be written about it.

I am looking forward to watching the whole series again in 10 years' time. How will we see the 60s then?

Mad Men End

Sundance played a group interview with most of the cast the night before the finale. It was listed as "new", but didn't seem so - but it was new to me.

It was very good by all, but the actor that stood out to me was the young lady who played Sally, Don and Betty's daughter. She carried herself very well and came across as very intelligent. She joked that she had been on the show for more than half her life (more time on than off)

She's finishing up a film within which she's the lead, and Meg Ryan is a supporting actress, which makes it seem like someone has a lot of confidence in her abilities, but perhaps not too much confidence, as the director of the film is pretty green.

I dunno about that. Only way you can watch on Comcast right now is to pay $2.99 an episode. And Amazon has them for $1.99 each. Maybe in a few months/years when the buzz dies down they will rerun it, but not right now. And I have a couple of episodes I'd like to catch again, while it's all fresh on my mind. Wonder if it's on Netflix? I don't have that....

Yep, Netflix has had Mad Men episodes for many years now, and I'd guess this will continue to be the case. Wouldn't surprise me to see the final half of Season 7 on Netflix by the end of the summer. Unfortunately, for us fans of the Walking Dead who are looking forward to the spinoff series "Fear The Walking Dead" in a few months, Netflix won't be carrying that one. It'll only be on Hulu Plus.

Speaking of re-watching shows, I'm actually considering purchasing the Blu-ray box set of all 7 seasons of Mad Men when it comes out. Not sure I've ever wanted to actually own an entire TV series on Blu-ray before, but this one was so high quality and filled with so much nuance and depth that it just might be purchase-worthy.

Love the show. DW and I and two of the children watch it. Brings back so many memories of childhood. Not so much the drama but the visual and auditory cues. And agree the the history woven in has been wonderful. Will be sad to see it end.
