Mad Men began its final season Sunday on AMC with a somber, even opaque episode that was probably a case of holding its final hand close to the vest. You hope there are some sensational cards there. Creator Matthew Weiner, whose baby this is, can be sensational or sensationally drab, exactly as he chooses.
The show's integrity is unmatched, admirable and every so often deeply irritating.
At any rate, I think it will be a while before anyone sings "Zou Bisou Bisou" again.

Apparently certain Mad Men fans are like the show's narrative progress or one of Betty's dinner parties or from-scratch cakes: they take their time and don't rush it.
So before the last season kicks off Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m., here is what you need to know (warning: if you are a binge-watcher and haven't gotten to season six, stop reading now or forever hold your spoiler-griping):

Don Draper certainly has a type. To use the comparison brought up by a memorable Sterling-Cooper ad pitch, Mad Men's mysterious protagonist has always gone more for Jackies than Marilyns. (As his marriage to Betty proved, when it comes to blondes, Don prefers the Grace Kelly model.)
To celebrate the premiere of Mad Men's final season, let's look back at the bevy of intellectual brunettes who have loved, lost and even sometimes married the cipher at the heart of the AMC drama.

It's so hard to say goodbye.
And when it comes to a hit show like Mad Men, which premieres the first episode of its seventh and final season on Sunday, that saying goes for the fans and actors alike.
"It's definitely getting sad," Elisabeth Moss told PEOPLE at the show's final season premiere party at Arclight Cinemas in Los Angeles on April 2. "We just started the last seven episodes that will air next year. It feels like it's almost the end. It's very strange."
So after seven seasons on the show, is she ready to move on? "The serious answer is of course, yes, it’s time for everyone to move on at a certain point," said Moss, 31. "The not serious answer is no, and I will be staging a sit-in and not leaving. Ever!"

Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen filed for divorce in 2010 after only one year of marriage, but the Mad Men star is still reflecting on the couple's relationship.

Like any good actor, Vincent Kartheiser knows the importance of the rehearsal process.
Before popping the question to girlfriend Alexis Bledel, the Mad Men actor (who plays Pete Campbell) jokingly practiced his proposal on set with costars Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré.
"It was purely comedic but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal," Paré told PEOPLE at the season 6 premiere of the hit AMC show Wednesday night. "We were like, 'Great! Lets do this one without cursing and without yelling!' "
All joking aside, Kartheiser's costars could not be happier to hear the news of the engagement to Bledel, who plays Beth Dawes on series, which returns to AMC April 7 (9 p.m. ET).

The men are still mad, breaking is still bad – and announcer Jimmy Kimmel isn't ashamed to let you see him in his pajamas. So it went as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were revealed early Thursday morning.
When the dust settled, not only was Kimmel himself nominated for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Mad Men and American Horror Story led the pack – with 17 nominations each.
The race is also on between top dramatic series lead actor contenders Jon Hamm, for Mad Men, and Bryan Cranston, for Breaking Bad – while both of their shows are also in the running for best dramatic series, along with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
The other actor nominees are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey); Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Dexter); and Damian Lewis (Homeland).
