If You’re a “Mad Men” Fan, This Supercut of “Next Time On…” is for You
Fans of AMC’s “Mad Men” are no doubt frothing to see the final episode of the prestige drama. Long-time fans have invested a lot in the lives of Don Draper and co. since the series premiered in 2007. If you’re a fan, by now you’re familiar with the beats of the show. Don loves to stare into space and make rash decisions. Pete Camball will always be an unctuous career-climber. And the “Next Time on Mad Mens” will always be horribly, horribly misleading and vague. It’s a trope at this point, and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” hit the nail on the head with this segment.
This best-of collection rounds up the most banal, pointless and misleading one-liners ever to grace the end-of-episode teasers we’ve been watching over the years.
With the final episode set to air next week, this was a bittersweet tribute. As fans prepare to say good-bye, let’s not forget to bid a fond farewell to the “Next Time on” segments. So, good-bye. You were never helpful, and sometimes it seemed like you were actively throwing out red herrings. But we’ll miss you anyway, “Next Time On”s. This Old Fashion’s for you.
