Mad Men series 7

Last night, the seventh and final series of 'Mad Men' premiered in the US. Us Brits will have to wait until Wednesday to see it air on Sky, but if you can't wait, here's the full skinny on what happened.

And be warned, there are spoilers aplenty.

The first episode was called 'Time Zones', and, as predicted, it saw the cast on their way to Los Angeles.

It's January 1969. Richard Nixon will shortly move into the White House, and the women's movement is about to take off, which means big things for the world of 'Mad Men'.

Don Draper is at a low point. He's still on 'extended leave' from Sterling Cooper, reduced to brainstorming pitches. And he's struggling to get used to Los Angeles.

He also seems a bit behind the times, now everyone is wearing their hair long and fully embracing the hippy look.

Peggy has had enough of the laziness around her, while Joan works her usual magic by thinking quickly and manipulating pretty much everyone she comes into contact with.

Roger is fully embracing the counter culture, orgies and all, while there were hints that Margaret has also taken up with some kind of alternative lifestyle. Though we'll have to wait to find out more.

There are only 13 more episodes of 'Mad Men' to go, though the series is split, with the second half being broadcast in 2015.

If you think you're going to miss it, don't worry, the man behind it will miss it even more, he told Variety.
