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.

Mad Men's title doesn't refer to star Christina Hendricks's effect on men, but apparently that's not much of a stretch.
While visiting Conan on Monday, Hendricks related a time that one gawker got a little carried away, and almost had to be, well, carried away.

Don't let the slick hair and sharp suits fool you. A vintage clip (well, less vintage than his hit AMC show, Man Men) of Jon Hamm on a '90s dating show proves he wasn't always a super smooth ladies' man.
The clip shows Hamm, now 43, when he was a 25-year-old waiter and one of three men vying for a date with a pretty brunette named Mary on The Big Date, hosted by Mark. L. Wahlberg.
"I'd start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation," says a young Hamm, describing how he'd woo Mary on their first date. "Then a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity."
