I think Mad Men started out strong. An anti-hero i could really watch. Powerful, talented, smug, and a born deceiver. Over time that character is becoming weak, pitiful, a failure and a disappointment. Not through some single sword swing or being struck down because of his hamartia but because he is actually weak, pitiful and dissapointing and can no longer maintain the facade. It is this slow wilting of a great character that is beginning to make this show unwatchable and is one of the worst character arcs in the history of TV.

Great show. Bad episodes or strings of them are saved by incredible scenes. Great acting.

I know it's oustanding, the attention to detail is unmatched in a modern day show set in the '50s, '60s but when there isn't one single character I like or can even identify with then I just don't want to know. Everyone I know loves it, it's just not for me.

I really enjoyed the first 4-5 seasons of the show. However, it got boring and dragged on till the end. The last season was good though and a good end to the series.

Mad Men is a strong period drama depicting the power of man over women and deception over truth. I do believe that it has gone on for a little too long. The first 5 seasons are good but now it's starting to veer away form its usually strong script and captivating acting to something that just seems desperate. There is deception, lies, love, betrayal, power, lust, drama and greed. I recommend this show to period drama lovers, give it a chance maybe you'll see it differently.

I found in this series one of the most charismatic characters in the series, Don Draper, is simply sensational plays and leads the series to another level.
Of course, specific humor 60s, the plot carried to the extreme. a series that you can not miss neither bored nor. Packs has good plot, believable characters, masterfully interpreted. An X-ray of a society in full swing, where are all are conflict / drama in the family, at work, in relationships. I look and I wonder, how much smoke in that period, women compete with men !! Interestingly presented the status of women and attempts to exit from male domination.
made perfect in terms of details, sometimes get lost in details, the distribution is very well chosen and has a sensational benefit. The plot has many series and going on several levels. It is tasteful, subtle and funny, smart and has a touch sexy in the most decent way. He joined the podium of my favorite serials.

This show started out so strong! I was hooked from the first episode. It was very powerful in the first couple of seasons but then it started to lose something. I struggled through the last season. It is still worth watching in my book.

Oh this show is just absolutely addicting! At times after watching to many episodes in a row you need a little break, but not for long! I love the era it's filmed in and just everything about it.

I love the drama, the secrets, how great that redhead looks in every episode. I don't know something just lures me in.
