6.4/10 - IMDB
Mad Men is a show that defies easy categorization, because it qualifies for so many: suspense, melodrama, farce, comedy, tragedy. At its core it is existential horror, like Waiting for Godot or reality. There’s nothing as easy as a supernatural component or thematic metaphor to tie it up with a bow. Like real life, Mad Men is littered with false doors and loose threads. There’s no hero’s quest for vengeance, no big crime to be unraveled, no zombies to kill. There are no manipulative plot twists or their cousin, deus ex machina, no easy ways out, and maybe no way out at all. This might frustrate a viewer looking for traditional clues and obvious arcs, but it’s satisfying on a much deeper level. The show’s big mysteries might be subtler, but they are richer, more universal questions. Who are we? What are we doing here? Why do we fall in love or out of it? Why do we grow old and die?

When the seatmate wakes up with her head against his shoulder, she says, “If I was your wife, I know I wouldn’t like this,” making us think of every woman Don has cheated on, which I guess is every woman.” “She knows that I’m a terrible husband,” Don replies. Then he adds, “I really thought I could do it this time.” “This” could be a reference to any number of Don’s sins—it almost doesn’t matter which, though, because the key words are “this time.” Don keeps cycling and recycling through life, inventing and reinventing himself and running from himself, but he can never escape who he was, or is.
