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.
Following his graduation from engineering school, 24-year-old slacker Lenny Markowitz moves into his own rundown apartment (his first time away from home), and next door to a gorgeous older redhead (Melody). Ignoring his engineering background, he goes to work at a shoe store owned by Cabell and staffed by jive-talking Raymond. He also finds time to play poker and get into trouble with his childhood pals. Written by

This was the story of an affable young single guy who moves into his own low-rent apartment away from his overprotective parents and gets a lousy job, "busting loose" into his own (adult) life. His parents, boisterous friends, coworkers, and a beautiful neighbor were also in the cast. A lot of the appeal of the show depended on the personal charm of Adam Arkin; he's a likable guy, but his personality is rather low-key to carry a sitcom by himself. Without another source of "oomph," this ended up lasting about a season and a half.
