In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Okay - I have been asked to cast a vote, but after all these years (I was 10 when I saw it) I can only pass judgement on how I felt back then. Being the target audience for this series, I couldn't wait for each episode. The series featured a bunch of school kids who for a number of contrived reasons (but plausible for gullible kids) got involved in espionage and all things 007. One episode sticks in my mind where the kids are locked in a cupboard while the bad guys have left a burning-candle-under-the-rope type death for the kids who using vinegar, a tube of rolled paper and some baking soda, extinguish the candle-flame with CO2 gas. More of this scientific McGyver-type stunts were performed with absolutely no "don't try this as home kids" riders. Great stuff! Looking at IMDb I see none of the child actors turned in any heavy-duty roles in later life. This is a milestone series in my childhood and though the exact plots etc. remain vague and hazy, the feeling of excitement in watching the series is still very strong.
