There has never been better television!
on 22 July 2015
Among the saddest events of my experience has been the conclusion of Mad Men after seven seasons. There has never been better television, whether for acting, writing, directing, costume, set, music, or that indefinable spark of something unexpected and extraordinary that makes truly, truly great TV. No, Mad Men is more than TV; it is great Art. Watching it has been, for me, the quintessence of pleasure, a non-stop high for the 45 minutes of each episode. And now (when I have finished watching all the episodes of this last season), I will no longer have Mad Men to look forward to. Boy, am I bummed out. Thank you, Matthew Weiner for your genius; thank you to the amazing writers and directors, and - above all - thank you, thank you, all the brilliant actors and actresses (not a dull character in the entire oeuvre) for your stupendous talents. God, I hope you all find work at least half as good in the future.
