Review of Mad Men

60 minutes

Set in 1960s New York, Mad Men follows the lives of enigmatic ad executive Don Draper, his fractured family, and the men and women of an ever-changing ad agency. Filled with lots of smoking, drinking, and era-appropriate sexism, Mad Men is a view into the not-so-distant past.

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I had a love hate relationship with Mad Men. The story is well acted, the period setting and clothing is fantastic, visually it is a masterpiece. That being said, it is a show that is hard to like the characters, and when they try to turn around your image of a character, your first impressions are hard to shake. It represents well what it could be like for women during that time period and how that was affected and affecting to the men around them. It took me a while, but I'm glad I finished the show. Keep on keeping on Don.
