lbunuel's rating of the film Mad Men

When critics praise TV series for having "cinematic quality", they miss what can make the format unique. Yes, the final seasons of Mad Men are not on the same level as the initial ones. But when it goes well, it's brilliant - specifically because it uses the potentiality of its episodic format to the fullest, like very few series do.
