I watched the first four seasons of Mad Men and loved it. I couldn’t stand this last season. It seems to me like this season is missing everything that made the first four seasons great. I think this is the reason for the drop in viewership. I think the only reason people still watch the show is that they cling to the hope that the show will reclaim some of it’s former glory.

The last demo drop seems significant. Any rationale out there?

I would like to see Don Draper grow old, maybe by himself as a rich playboy. I would definitely like to see something to the point where Don’s daughter grows up and gets married… Perhaps to te neighbor kid that the mom hates. Maybe see Don and Betty have a fling every now and then as such in the movie “it’s Complicated”. Just go all out with some good drama out of left field.

Although it’s been renewed for seasons 5 and 6… I think Mad Men should complete a 10 season run. If the likes of other good dramas like CSI, Law and Order or even comedies such as “Seinfeld” have done it; I don’t see why this particular “period piece” can’t have longevity. It educates and communicates with todays generation about how things used to be and how we have progressed as a collective society in all phases of life.
