Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

Jon Hamm & co will soon again be draping all over our screens... and in spring instead of summer.

The sixth season of the American television drama series Mad Men is scheduled to premiere on April 7, 2013, with a two-hour episode. It will consist of thirteen episodes, each running approximately 47 minutes in length. AMC will broadcast the sixth season on Sundays at 10:00 pm in the United States, except the premiere, which will start at 9:00 pm.[1]

The two hour premiere is titled The Doorway.



I'm pretty stoked for this and fairly unspoiled. The last couple of seasons have continued to be entertaining. Let's hope for more of the same.
Next season is supposedly the last... unless of course Disney purchases and buries it first.

There's something about that promo pic (above) that makes me think of Big Love...

Here's something I found...

Which 'Mad Men' character are you? Take the quiz and find out.

Here's what I got…

Congratulations! You are most similar to:

Don Draper

Your steely resolve and artfully-orchestrated personal brand has propelled you to the top. You can be ruthless but rational, and although few know it, a romantic.
Never thought I'd get the man himself.

I like that pic too, but I like it because it really does look like it was taken in the 60s.

I got Don as well. I assumed I'd get Roger, Pete or Peggy.

Of course, the choices were so obvious to anyone who watches the show vis a vis which answer matched which character I may have subconsciously picked answers (at least in close cases) that matched Don.

Intriguing that your mind would go there first!

I meant managing multiple women in his life... since Betty Draper will once again be a force to be reckoned with this season we can reasonably expect to see more of him trying to meet the expectations of her as well as Sally and Megan. That's what I see in the photo. The look in his face is as though he's enduring some sort of matriarchal upheaval (and postulating another identity swap?).

Can you recall Sarah from Big Love (Amanda S) giving Bill plenty of trouble during the first few seasons? I can't wait to see what bombshells Sally will be dropping... likely having something to do with creepy former neighbour Glen!

Jesus, I'm Peggy Olsen??
But... I picked beer!

I was hoping for Roger, guess I'll have to stop drinking beer.

Well, you DID bring up a show that was about bigamy, but now that you've clarified what you meant your point is well taken.

Roger Sterling

You really don't have too many worries or much to prove so you try to have as much fun as possible. That's why even the hint of drama can send you careening in the opposite direction, but, hey, you're used to someone else doing the dirty work.

Re: Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

The recording of the episode at my "other means" site cut off the episode with about 30 seconds or so to go. Right when whats his face at Peggy's office was teasing her about Ted liking her. I read some reviews. I take it the last shot was of Don in bed with one of the women from his and Megan's dinner party?

Also, concerning the episode--what the hell was that supposed to be, anyway? I adore this show, but his reminded me of the one episode in all of the preceding five seasons that I loathed, when Don and Pete were on the business trip in California and he left Pete to run off with those bohemians. I'm not buying Betty sitting in a flophouse for hours, and that line about Henry raping Sandra while Betty held down her arms? Did Matt Weiner hate his own mother or something? Seriously, she's never been perfect but I remember during season two when Don was cheating constantly and we all had sympathy for Betty because Don was always sabotaging her self esteem, telling her she looked desperate in her bikini and all that. There's complex, there's depressed, and then there's pathological without cause or sufficient reason. What is up with how he writes for Betty anymore? At least with Don we know about his issues with women from the very beginning with his mother having been a prostitute and his stepmother psychologically torturin him for being a "whore child." I can remember thinking that Betty was going to embrace her inner feminist self and rooting for her. Why does Weiner feel the need to make her so mental in a disturbing fashion?

Is it supposed to New Years going into 1968 or 1969? From the looks of Sally, I'd wager 1969.

I did a quick search and it said they were going into 1968. And yeah, you can see subtle hints of the 70s approaching in the clothing and hair styles. The show is good with details like that. Can't wait to see what the gang looks like when the new decade hits.

They are going stop at 1970 correct?? If so there wasn't much change from 67-68 to 1970. Just look at old tv shows and movies from that period. There were still plenty of people sporting 60ish styles. So Don clinging onto his clean cut look is not out of the question for 1970. Though I am sure they producers will have him break down like the others eventually concerning longer hair and sideburns.
