I HAVE A MAD MEN hangover this morning.
TOTAL WITHDRAWL has set in.
I watched, and RE watched the VERY FINAL final
episode of MAD MEN last night after having binge watched much of the first 7 seasons for the last
I may just have to give
up TV altogether for a while….everything feels strangely bland and slow and sober and sloppy.
Watching Mad Men was like seeing the world, or at least a fictionalized
slice of … of my childhood.
And it was just plain FANTASTIC TELEVISION.
I loved it all…the acting, the costumes, the sets, the colors, the sounds and the story.
The Design. The attention to detail and authenticity was unsurpassed…and it had a soul.
MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE…I WILL MISS THE CHARACTERS ON MAD MEN.
EACH LIKE A LITTLE PART OF MYSELF, I COULD RELATE TO EACH ONE IN A DIFFERENT WAY…THEY MADE ME THINK AND CRY AND LUST AND YEARN AND HATE SIMULTANEOUSLY WISH FOR MORE AND FEEL GRATEFUL …
and ….I MISS MAURA, MY SISTER IN LAW, WHO INTRODUCED ME TO MAD MEN, SHE KNEW I WOULD LOVE IT AND GAVE ME SEASON 1-4 FOR CHRISTMAS A FEW YEARS BEFORE SHE PASSED AWAY. IT CONNECTED US LIKE A LIFE NOT LIVED AND AT THE VERY LAST MOMENT OF THE VERY LAST SCENE…I MISSED HER SO MUCH.SHE WOULD HAVE LOVED IT.

I’m having withdrawals too! I started watching it on a whim during the 3rd season and have been an addict ever since. It was a great series and finale. I love everything about it, what I wouldn’t give for some of those costumes! Such a great, great show. And I’m so glad Don didn’t die–I was a little afraid he might.
I KNOW….ME TOO!!! he is truly the most handsome man on earth.
You’ve summed up my Madmen experience pretty succinctly Leslie! I felt myself experiencing many aspects of my childhood through the stories and felt myself both cheering Don on and being angry at him at the same time. I sure will miss these characters!
So sad to see it end, but they nailed the ending! And, I sure hope that Maura got a behind-the-scenes view of it all 🙂
I thought the ending was truly brilliant and so perfect. I cried.
