More ‘Mad Men’ coming . . . but there’s a catch

Some news today about the final season of “Mad Men” that’s both good and bad, depending on how you look at it. The good news: AMC is expanding Season 7 of “Mad Men” to 14 episodes (up from 13, but hey, anything that brings more Don Draper is fine by me). The not-so-good news: they’re going to split the season in two, airing the first seven episodes in the spring of 2014 (to be called “The Beginning”), and the final seven episodes in . . . wait for it . . . the spring of 2015 (called “The End of an Era”.) “Breaking Bad,” also on AMC, followed a similar pattern for its final season. For fans of the show, is this good news or bad news? Really, it’s like having two very short seasons, rather than one long one; I think I’d prefer to have it all in one go. Anyone disagree?

A favorite scene, from back in Season 3. Has one of my all-time “Mad Men” favorite lines, the one beginning with “That’s life.”
