Mad Men Season 6 (Begins April 7, 2013)
+1 The friend at the end So what does everybody think? Did Don cheat? I'm thinking he did.
I read somewhere on the net (I don't think it was here, I believe it was somewhere else) that if you pay attention throughout season 5, Don never once ordered or drank an Old Fashioned until the end. Old Fashioned's were his drink of choice in the previous seasons when he was stepping out on Betty. He was completely loyal to Megan throughout season 5 but at the end, as soon as he orders that Old Fashioned, he basically gets propositioned.
But as the show prepared for its new season, which begins April 7, its creator, Matthew Weiner, inspired by a childhood memory of lush, painterly illustrations on T.W.A. flight menus, decided to turn back the promotional clock. He pored over commercial illustration books from the 1960s and ’70s and sent images to the show’s marketing team, which couldn’t quite recreate the look he was after.
“Finally,” he said, “they just looked up the person who had done all these drawings that I really loved, and they said: ‘Hey, we’ve got the guy who did them. And he’s still working. His name is Brian Sanders.’ ”
