Wired provides a guide to binge-watching Mad Men, declaring, “Just as Mad Men’s characters are impressively fleshed out, so are its set, costume design, and soundtrack.”

Vulture reassures viewers that they can watch Mad Men even if they don’t approve of Don’s behavior because it’s “the greatest show of our time.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer, discussing the many shows that are ending, says “perhaps the toughest loss will be the supernal Mad Men.”

• The CEO of Lionsgate, which produces Mad Men, tells The Hollywood Reporter that Matthew Weiner “did a wonderful job from beginning to end. I think it’s going to always remain as one of the best series ever done.”

The Boston Globe applauds the trend of TV characters developing and transforming over the course of a series, citing Jon Hamm’s Don and Elisabeth Moss’ Peggy as examples.

• The Orange County Register examines the trend, typified by Mad Men – known for its “scrupulous devotion to historical accuracy” – of TV shows set in the past.

Variety reports that Matthew Weiner is a member of the Berlin Film Festival’s international jury.

Flicks and Bits showcases a U.K. trailer for Good Kill, a movie starring Ethan Hawke and January Jones that opens in the U.K. on Apr. 10.
