Thought the finale was beautiful. Such a great show that tackled what the workplace means to 95% of people who will donate most of their adult lives to a corporation. Will rewatch in a couple of years.
Just marathoned the second half of the final season, but haven't watched the finale. I was initially disappointed with the first 3 episodes, however the 3 after that were really great. Can't wait to watch the finale now.
Well that was wonderful. Like most of what I just saw on this page, I immediately took the ending to mean that Don returned to New York and came up with that iconic ad, although there's probably something more going on that I'm too thick to grasp.
Gonna miss this show a hell of a lot. Like has been said, there really is nothing even remotely like it on TV. Would have preferred more Pete in the finale, I think he only had 1 minute of screentime.
And we never got to see Sal again Not that I was expecting him to pop up given the nature of characters just randomly disapppearing and never being mentioned again on this show. It just never felt right with me what happened with that character. Oh well.
I've not really thought much of this series since it came back and was still waiting for the proper finale feels to really kick in most of the way through until don had his breakdown with that guy, then when the coke ad rolled it all came together beautifully. In the words of Bert Cooper, "bravo".
Glad we were spared the Betty death, better left implied IMO.
Bit of an epic bump but I watched the first episode of this again last night - after watching the first few episodes years ago - and was wondering how focussed the show is on the marketing side of the business?
I absolutely loved Don Draper creating the tobacco slogan on the fly and the surrounding business meetings, but remember not really caring about the more personal aspects of the show. As it continues does it still include plenty of marketing aspects or could the work side of things realistically be replaced with a lawyer firm, investment banker practice, etc. without a noticeable change in the show?
