4.0 out of 5 stars
Mad Men - Season 1 and 2 DVD, 21 April 2010
A smoke-filled, alcohol soaked take on advertising in late 50s early 60s Manhattan. A curious cast of largely dislikeable people are so buttoned up emotionally they could use some velcro to break out. Well acted with a smart script it is strangely compelling. Its style is slow-burning. Don't expect denouements in the same episode, if at all. Clues are dropped and then taken up much later. You need your wits about you and a good memory to savour all the nuances. Definitely worth giving up time for and clearly period authentic.
