mad men season seven

y’all hear matthew weiner wrote a novel and it’s 144 pages long… and he’s charging $25 for it… he’s charging $25 for a 40,000-word book. you can write seven seasons of mad men but you can’t cross the nanowrimo threshold? smh

I’m not crying, nor have I been crying for the past two hours because I hate the show or because I want to kill Matt Weiner. I’m crying and have been crying for the past two hours because Betty Francis, a character I adore and am painfully attached too, is dying. She’s fucking dying. She’s got nine months to a year to live. I fucking hate the storyline, but I’m not mad at the show or the writers. So, in a weird way, the storyline makes sense, “Mad Men” is not a show about happiness, is about life. And in life you search for happiness. Sometimes you find it, sometimes you don’t. Joan got a shitty exit from McCann, Roger knows he’s condemned to spend the rest of his years trapped in those offices, not being a leader, Don is a hobo again and Betty is fucking dying. Did this ruin “Mad Men” for me? Hell no! Do I like it? Hell fucking no! “Mad Men” is that show that happens to be different, the one that sets itself apart, the one that makes sense, the one that grips you and makes you get involved because of the characters, and not the ships, the one that built an amazing fandom where we can all talk and discuss in a civilized way, the one that you don’t get angry with. The finale probably won’t hurt as much now that I saw what’s happening to Betty, and I may joke that that’s what Matt planned all along with this storyline, but I still don’t want to say goodbye to it. I know Betty’s story sucks, and that she’s dying before her time. I’m well aware the woman smokes like a chimney and yeah, that’s life! And that’s “Mad Men”. And Matt and the writers have given her seven seasons of amazing storylines and watching her go through the rollercoaster that has been Betty’s life was a thrill. But still, I feel validated to keep on crying because the Queen is dying of cancer and it fucking hurts. And watching this show end will also fucking hurt.

This review discusses the plotline of Mad Men, up through the end of Season Six: 

Our TV critic David Bianculli was given the tricky task of reviewing the Season Seven opener of Mad Men, without giving too much away: 

When we last saw Jon Hamm as Madison Avenue advertising genius Don Draper, Draper had stripped off the façade he had worn as protection throughout the series. He confessed to his true past, as a boy raised in a whorehouse — not only to his children, but to his colleagues at work, during a pitch to an advertising client. Immediately, he lost his chance to move to the West Coast office his firm was opening — and there were bound to be other consequences. This final season, it appears, will be all about those consequences.

Don always has been resourceful, and resilient, and those traits are in full display in the season seven opener. His confession last season has altered him — in his behavior as well as his demeanor, he’s a noticeably changed man. You can tell that even from one of the few scenes from Mad Men that reveals no secrets about where the series is going — just that Don is going somewhere, on a plane.
