“Mad Men” takes its final Bow

Now that “Justified” is about to head off into the history books, another show has returned to play out it’s final act. As of this writing, “Mad Men” is airing it’s final six or so episodes. I have to admit, I never got into the series. My wife and I watched the first season on DVD. We saw it through to the end, but it never grabbed us the way it has so many others. Even so, I do appreciate how the show has managed to truly capture the visual style of the era in which it exists. So, to usher it on it’s way, I thought I would try to channel a little Robert McGinnis and paint a few portraits of the stylish residents of the “Mad Men” universe starting with everyone’s favorite redhead!
