It’s that time of year, darlings. Time for the Hamm to strap on his Draper again.
That sounded wonderfully dirty, didn’t it?
Jon Hamm is seen filming “Mad Men” Los Angeles, California.
There’s not much to be said here from a costuming perspective. We’ve been saying for years that Don would be dressing at the end of the series pretty much exactly the same way he dressed at the beginning. Still, he’s wearing a brown suit with wider lapels and a wider tie. It’s not exactly late ’60s trendy, but it’s Don’s version of keeping up with the times.
Here’s a little something to get you to yell at us. Having rewatched it recently, we don’t think the last season was very good. In fact, as far as we’re concerned, it was the first bad season of the show. The Sylvia stuff just doesn’t hold together and the Pete storyline was almost appallingly broad and comedic in comparison to previous seasons of the show. Peggy got treated like a background character and Joan got treated like an extra. We never saw Peggy deal with the breakup of the longest, most mature and committed relationship of her life and we never heard whether or not Joan’s massive risk-taking resulted in her securing one of the biggest clients on the agency’s roster. There were some decent episodes and emotional payoffs to be found, but the overall arc of the season felt stale, disjointed, and uneven.
