#170 / Mad Men

Mad Men is about advertising. And it is about Don Draper, the central figure, and about who he really is.

This season, Mad Men implicitly equated advertising with prostitution. If you are willing to prostitute yourself, and bring in a new account, you'll make partner in the firm.

I found most poignant the very final scene this season (pictured), when a pair of pretty women in a bar posed this question to Don: "Are you alone?"

That's a question for each one of us.

I don't think the answer has to be "yes."
