It is :)
Well, it’s hard to put in words. Season six is very complex, as others are. In my mind, it is a climax before the actual climax that season seven is going to be. After five seasons of build up, I think I finally understand and know the characters. I also love what went down in season six. Everything just came together, you know?
Don’s downward spiral hit the bottom, I liked the further exploration of his character, his past, his drunken visions. Ever noticed how Don’s forced leave is an analogy to Fred Rumsen’s one?
It’s not like women didn’t rock in the show from the very beginning, but Trudy and Megan taking control of her lives was exquisite. It is no secret that I love Megan, but I didn’t like her being there just to be Don’s wife. She was fierce and complex from the start but this season she got more scenes so there’s that.
And Sally. Now that’s she’s a full-time character, I can’t get enough. I think she was the best thing about the second part of the season. When she explored herself sexually in season four, I was a bit worried she’s going to be all about boys, a trope. But Mad Men never lets me down and she is complex (I use that word a lot when it comes to this show but it just fits). And Glen made a cameo :)
Anyway, this season has great cinematography, some of my favourite scenes and working with characters that were already developed made me enjoy it more than other seasons.
I would probably put season three in second place, season two in third.
