A few years ago, I thought The Sopranos may have been the best TV show I have ever seen.
Then I got hooked on Breaking Bad. Now, I’m watching Mad Men wind down.
It’s funny how the “heroes” you see on television these days are actually anti-heroic. Tony Soprano, Walter White, Don Draper, even to a lesser degree Peggy Olson can sprout fangs.
It’s their anti-heroism and their flaws that make these characters (and remember people, that’s all they are: characters) so addicting to watch, I think.
The finale of Mad Men should be a good one, although I think they cancelled it a little too soon. Would have liked to have seen the show make it until at least 1975 or so. Roger Sterling doing the disco would have probably been a hoot to watch.
