'Mad Men' characters going to extremes

April 27, 2012 - Bennet Goldstein
The return of the AMC series "Mad Men" has been a bit of a let down in my eyes. We are in the middle of the season and the last couple of episodes it seems like the characters are going off the deep end.

Just in the last two weeks we've had a fist fight in the middle of the office, the lead character chasing his wife around their home then tackling her, a very raunchy movie theater scene and a guy taking LSD with his wife. Earlier in the season, we also had a cancer scare for one of the main characters, which turned out to be fine.

It is me or are these characters a little more extreme this year? They have never been the epitome of righteousness but this year it seems like writers are trying very hard to be over the top.

This hasn't been the best season in my opinion. The shows have still been decent, but I guess I expected better, especially after the long wait.
