All 13 episodes from the sixth season of the Golden Globe-winning drama set in a prestigious advertising agency in 1960s New York, where sexism is a way of life and everyone smokes like a chimney. In this highly competitive, all white, male-dominated environment, the indefatigable Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the top ad executive, but there are plenty of young guns eager to topple him from his perch. In this season, amidst the turmoil of the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, Don proposes that SCDP merge with rivals Cutler Gleason and Chaough in order to win the Chevrolet account. The episodes are: 'The Doorway: Part 1', 'The Doorway: Part 2', 'Collaborators', 'To Have and to Hold', 'The Flood', 'For Immediate Release', 'Man With a Plan', 'The Crash', 'The Better Half', 'A Tale of Two Cities', 'Favors', 'The Quality of Mercy' and 'In Care Of'.

When things get bad, we tend to look to the past. And the bleaker the future looks, the further back we search for comfort. As the new millennium keeps disappointing us, TV shows set on the 50's and the 60's (once a rarity) keep growing in numbers. Many have tried and failed. MAD MEN tried and closed the deal. And have been doing so for 6 seasons now.

Meet Don Draper (Jon Ham), a Madison Avenue water-walker (and based on the real life ad men Draper Daniels and Rosser Reeves). He is an enigma wrapped in a mystery. He is brilliant and secretive. He wants to keep walking the tight rope with no safety net. And definitely no contract. He is a chain-smoking, hard liqueur guzzling, womanizing alpha male. He is a loving father of three, married to a picture-perfect ex model. He has it all. And yet he cannot find peace. Because he learned early on that the world is always yawning at your heels, eager to yank everything you love away.

From bursting with joie-de-vivre Roger Sterling (hilarious John Slattery) and ever scheming Pete Cambell (baby-faced Vincent Kartheiser) to the gorgeous women (such as barbie January Jones and refined Jessica Paré as his first and second wife, respectively), the cast is one perfect pick after another. And the writing is brilliant, reproducing the tastes and smells and nuisances of the era around Camelot, while drawing you in to the personal stories of characters polished yet inevitably flawed.

The 50's and the 60's were before my time so it is not nostalgia that makes me love the show. Yes, I find the era mesmerizing and (probably undeservingly) less complicated. If nothing else, though, back then they knew how to dress. Women looked feminine and men looked manly.

Mad Men remains top end drama but there is a very different vibe going on in Series 6. It took several episodes for me to really get into this series but, on reflection, this had much to do with the social/political changes going on in the late 60's and how these are captured. In particular Don and Roger appear increasingly old-fashioned in a world that is changing so quickly.

This isn't the best series but Mad Men remains one of the best programmes. I am looking forward to Series 7 and although disappointed it will be the last, I don't see how it could continue for much longer without losing the edge it has had since it started.

Format: DVD
When I watched the first episode of the sixth season of Mad Men I expected it to feel like putting on a comfortable, well-worn, pair of slippers. For years we have gotten to know Don, Pete, Peggy, Betty and numerous other characters as their fortunes, and those of the agency, have ebbed and flowed. But disconcertingly the start of the season time travels forward a couple of years from the end of season 5. As a result everything familiar felt different, and it took several episodes to feel reoriented in the lives of the characters. That was a stroke of genius. Mad Men has always made us work hard for the rewards of feeling immersed in its world.

Once the reorientation process was complete, the series continued with the same sharp writing and flawless acting which have made the previous series such compelling viewing. The introduction of several new characters,the toxic fallout from Don's relationships, and the overhaul of the agency all help to keep the stories fresh and open new windows to the souls of the major protagonists. That said, Don's soul remains a dark and mysterious place. That is why we love him, and this show, so much.

Mad Men has all the requisites for a hugely enjoyable TV series and from the first episode of Season one I was engaged. For sheer style Mad Men is hard to beat and the attention to detail with regard to the clothes, hairstyles, etc. of the period, as the series moves from the fifties through the sixties against a backdrop of the main political events of the period, is remarkable. The Mad Men of the title refers to the advertising executives working on Madison Avenue and the principal Mad Man, Don Draper worked as creative director and is now junior partner in the firm Sterling Cooper and Partners. While the series focuses on Don and his life both personal and working, there is a wonderful supporting cast including Roger Sterling, Peggy Olson, Pete Campbell. Joan Holloway and Betty Draper and many other sterling (pun intended) characters.

In season one we learned that Don Draper the successful head of department in Sterling Cooper with the beautiful wife and cute kids, is in reality Jay Gatsby. In effect, Don built his successful career and glamourous lifestyle through personal effort and achievement. He came from a humble and troubled background and even though he has achieved so much he comes across as unsettled and dissatisfied with life.

Over the course of the following seasons we witness the confident serial philanderer begin to lose everything he has worked so hard to build and we are reminded of the opening credits where the man in free fall surely symbolizes Don's steady yet long and slow fall from grace.

Season Six sees Don and his co-stars living through the turbulent events of 1968, a very important year in American politics.
