Mad Men: The Final Season, Part 2 [Blu-ray + Digital HD]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/3/15

This was a really good show, although the last two seasons were a little bit more slow, and not quite as funny, as the first 5 years. Sometimes even the best shows get a little bit self-indulgent after awhile, particularly when everyone is saying how great they are.  Still, I really miss the show and all of its characters, especially Don, Roger, Peggy and Pete.

I don't know why they always split the seasons into two DVD's, although at least this one makes some sense since the last season did air split up into two, with a long break in between.

It's very sad to watch the end of any show you like, but they worked hard to make this one that everyone can enjoy. Well, maybe not if you were hoping Don and Betty were going to get back together, but I can't imagine they had that many fans. I guess the only thing I would have liked to have seen is what happened to some of the earlier characters, like Sal and Paul.

It's funny because I only started watching the show because I really loved Vincent Kartheiser (Pete) on "Angel." He's actually very gorgeous and an amazing actor - nothing at all like Pete, who was always such a dorky and selfish weasel child-man.  Don, however, played by Jon Hamm, was the most handsome guy on the show, and he became a big star because of it. I hope we see him in more great stuff. I was glad that they made Don (seemingly) happy at the end.  My other favorite was Roger, played by John Slattery. Roger always had some of the best lines in the show and was good for so many laughs. I already loved the actor from when he played in some favorite shows of mine in the past, notably "Homefront" and a show from the late 90's called "Maggie." I'm glad he was finally able to find real success on this show and also get to be in the Iron Man and Avengers movies as Tony Stark's late dad.

If you're a fan of the show, you will definitely want to collect this DVD to see how it all turns out and to see the MANY great features. They always do a great job with the "Mad Men" DVD's and this one is no exception. See the info below about all of the extras.

If you haven't seen much of the show, you really do want to go back to the beginning and watch from season one when the show was at its best, and see how everything progressed. Then you will enjoy the ending so much more.  My husband even watched this show with me, and he's very picky, so he doesn't like much on TV. He grew up in the 60's, so he enjoyed the brief look at the decade on this show and how they took great pains to be historically accurate to the period (he's around the age of Bobby, Don's son).

Enjoy it because it's a fun ride!
