— The critically-adored drama Mad Men kicks off the second-half of its final season Sunday. What will become of the dashing Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and the rest of Sterling Cooper Draper Price? Say goodbye to the ‘60s style and smoky conference rooms that have accented the melodrama for seven seasons at 10 p.m. Eastern on AMC. We’re hoping for an appearance from queer characters Sal Romano (Bryan Batt) or Bob Benson (James Wolk).

10 LGBT TV Moments From 2013

  Downtonjimmytom

When it comes to LGBT characters on television, 2013 was the best of times and the worst of times. The first half of the year was part of the record-setting 2012-2013 television season in terms of LGBT representation on television. However, it also saw the end of many shows featuring LGBT characters, including The New NormalSmashSouthland, and Happy Endings

Despite these losses, LGBT characters on television continued to become more multi-dimensional and better reflect the lives of LGBT people in 2013. For example, in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to strike down DOMA and rule that Prop. 8 proponents have no standing, there were many television weddings and proposals. There was also a small uptick in transgender representation, including characters on the critically lauded Orange Is the New Black and Glee.

Five Favorite Men of TV's Period Pieces

Tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern the CW premieres Reign, a period drama focusing on a young Mary, Queen of Scots. Since this is the CW, there will be lots of scandalous teenage sexuality. This series is also boasting a buzzy soundtrack featuring current artists like Mumford & Sons and Santigold. They're hoping the juxtaposition of cool, contemporary tracks against bodice-ripping melodrama will be enough to add a little spice to the historical soap.

Reign isn't the first television period piece and, with shows like The Gilded Age in development, it certainly won't be the last. Sure, the secret to success is in the storytelling, but, come on, a handsome leading man to get your petticoats all tied in knots certainly doesn't hurt.
