So this week CFK will get a little break, as every show goes off the air save Community, and that’s okay, because you know there’s always time for Alison Brie. Finale Week kicked off last night with the much-anticipated, and glorious, Mad Men finale. Can the Simpsons measure up? Well, no, but at least we can have fun with what may be our last glimpse of Harry Shearer.
There really are no words for this, are there? We’ve reached the finish. Mad Men, a show we can safely call a landmark in television history, has come to an end.
Maybe all the stories we care for will be wrapped up tonight. Maybe not. The hallmark of this show is that it never takes the easy way out. Undoubtedly, some fans will be pleased, some will be outraged, and many will fall in the middle.
For those of you who have stuck with this show for nearly eight years, or perhaps discovered it along the way, and are now waiting for the end – I hope you find a conclusion you can be content with.
However, we fans know that no matter what happens – we’ll always have Sterling Cooper.
As of next week, this sorry season finally comes to an end. I have to say, even by latter-day Simpsons standards this one was pretty wretched. Can they redeem themselves in two episodes? Ummm…
It’s the two-hour season finale, folks! Let’s see what those crazy writers have in store for us this week.
Part 1—Henry Does The Heavy Lifting
In Mad Men-ish times, our Author was a TV salesman. Even then he was very talky. His manager notices, and is not pleased. Awwww, no one understands his artistic point of view. But wait! A letter! From a publishing company! They want to meet him ASAP!
We’re into the last stretch, you guys. Ten years onscreen, eight off, and a hell of a lot of water under the bridge. After next week, there will be no more – and that’s a lot to say goodbye to. Join me, for the second-last time, as we follow this incredible series.
Chicken Scheme Part II, please? Well, a girl can ask.
First off, massive apologies for the delay in updates. It’s been a rough week. However, everything will be up-to-date by tomorrow. In the meantime, let’s enjoy this season’s finale. I hear it’s going to be big. Dun dun DUN.
