I am in mourning. Katy from I Got a Dumpster Family! is in mourning, too, which helps me feel less alone in my sadness. Tonight is the very last episode, the series finale of Mad Men. No more Don or Betty or Joan or Roger or Peggy or Pete. BAH. I am not ready.
One the one hand, I am grateful I will never, ever need to see Don Draper wearing polyester leisure suits with too wide ties and lapels, which believe me, I have thought about a lot, but on the other hand, the ending of this show breaks my heart. For real.
I’ve been a fan since before the first episode, when I first started seeing teaser ads for it and wondered what this mid-century drama was all about. I. WAS. HOOKED. I read about the storyline and have been watching ever since.
The other day, thinking about the end and my sadness, led me to think of my dear friend, Katy, who I know is equally obsessed with this show. Misery loves company, which is when I thought it would be good to talk all things Mad Men with her. Katy gets it. We can cry together. Hence, this new video series. We hope you love it as much as we loved making it.
Our plan, if you like it, is to do a series of these where we talk about all the characters in the coming weeks. You can see our second installment (featuring Don and Betty) over at Katy’s blog today. WATCH IT HERE RIGHT AFTER YOU WATCH THIS.
