Let's Discuss: Is Splitting the Final Season Over Two Years Insulting to Viewers?
In the age of Netflix unveiling full seasons at once, is AMC running a huge risk by spreading out the final season across two calendar years? Mad Men is one of my favorite shows, so I'll be tuning in nonetheless, but I have to admit that I'm pretty annoyed.

Could any other show get away with this, or do you think it's only something a more critically acclaimed show can pull off?

Vincent Kartheiser's Putrefaction

In the last two seasons they've really pushed for Pete's physical appearance to mirror his fairly rotten personality, sort of like the Picture of Dorian Grey without the picture. While I can appreciate the symbolism (and symbolism's what Mad Men's all about) it does make me sad, he was beautiful and now I don't know what he is. Vincent has really committed himself to the role, purposely gaining weight and having his hair shaved back to fake a receding hairline. And that's what I really wanted to mention, the hair. I should find picture(s) to post about it but I'm still intimidated by this site's copyright warnings. Luckily I found a site that with a slideshow on this to save me the trouble.

So the hair. Looking at it in Season 6 it has consistently looked fake and distracting to me ...

I Think We should talk about all those dropped Storylines

Yeah so what I really noticed this season was that there were a whole bunch of dropped storylines (which really bugged me) Ill just list a few (and anyone else is free to add more). Idk do you guys think that they will even be mentioned next season and if so what do you think are their outcomes?

1) Dawn's friends marriage. This story was brought up earlier in the season and was talked about for around 3 but really went nowhere and I really thought that it was leading to something interesting with Dawn but I guess not. 2) Of course Joan and the Avon account 3) Anything to do with Mr. Bob Benson

hmmm for some reason Im drawing a blank but I know there is more.... ill think of them later
