Mad Men Season 5 is upon us, and AMC has been just a little stingy on the promo pics for the premiere episode(s). What I find telling is the selection of Mad Men characters that AMC has chosen to focus on here. Tell me if you see a pattern, and what you think this might say about Mad Men's plan for season 5.
Conspicuously absent from the pics is Mad Men's lead Don Draper. That's right, Jon Hamm is nowhere to be seen in these pics. Could it be that Mad Men's main arc will be Draper-lite? Hard to imagine Don being less than a major character in ANY arc, but these pics suggest AMC is putting the focus elsewhere initially. Might not be such a bad thing really since Mad Men is really more of an ensemble show. Either way, tune in to Mad Men tonight on AMC at 9PM to find out what they have in store.
