Final thoughts: Was nice to catch up with Season 6 of the show – the downward spiral of Don Draper just continues to amaze, while Peggy Olsen (Elizabeth Moss) clearly shines as the “new” Don.  Great featurettes on the disc – I REALLY loved the Design of a Decade featurette – it’s such an interesting thing to go behind the scenes and see how it all works.  The episodes look beautiful, and this is a must have for any collection!
