"Mad Men" returns Sunday night at 10 for the first of its final seven episodes. It's the beginning of the end for the critically acclaimed, game-changing show that began in 2007.
"There are new mustaches in town. There are new patterns in the clothes and wallpaper," Times television critic Robert Lloyd writes of tonight's episode, "Severance." Still, even as "life is progressing," says Lloyd, "it is cycling back to the beginning."
