Mad Men 8 Seasons 2007

Available in Prime
Season 1
Available in Prime
4.2 out of 5 stars (202)

Mad Men is a compelling insight into the harsh reality of life in the 60s, perfectly portrayed through the dealings of a prestigious ad agency in New York's Madison Avenue. This was the era of astonishing sexism, homophobia and the last golden years of the guilt free cigarette, as mass consumerism took hold and helped form the American dream.

Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss

Buried away on BBC 4 & the midnight slot on BBC 2 it's little wonder that no one's seen this show. I was lucky enough to read a review and started to catch it from Episode 3 and I'm so glad I did. The show is brilliant. Set in a 1960's New York Ad Agency it deals with the life of the ad men, their wives, mistresses and their secretaries. The writing is so sharp you'll cut yourself, the research and detail is faultless, it's slick, cool and gripping. Each episode is a gem in it's own right, like little mini Hitchcock films, the style and look is very Rear Window. Even the open credits are a work of art and a tribute to the great Saul Bass.

Although set in the 60's it easy to relate to the men & women in the show, times have changed a lot, the men all smoke & drink in the office and think nothing of making a sexist remark to their P.A. Now these things don't get said in front of women in the office anymore, but they are still thought and said behind closed doors, so the issues they create are still very much in the work place. They just said it out loud in the 60's.

The ad men are hard driven and determined to be top dog at work and find it difficult to transfer their work personalities to home where they suddenly have to take off the suit and attend kids birthday parties or paint the fence. The wives are complex people stuck in their domesticated perfect wife routines, slowly being driven crazy by suppressing their personalities.

It's pure class all the way, forget Desperate Housewives and get watching Mad Men, it's the best thing on TV for years.

Incredibly well researched, this is a beautiful drama bubbling with a tension which really captures the era. Mad Men is overwhelmingly uncomfortable to watch for those of us who were brought up in an age defined by both political correctness and economic change - not only is this a chauvinistic, homophobic world defined by men, it is a world of capitalism, consumerism and greed. And yet it is exactly this which makes this so watchable.

The series revolves around an ad agency on Madison Avenue in the 60s, and its strength lies in the slow building of the characters who inhabit this shady world of cigarette sales and illicit office liasons. The central tenet of the series is office politics as the "Mad Men" vie for advertising sales of products which define the 60s,ranging from the first disposable diapers to the carousel slide projector. Set against a backdrop of an America on the edge, we are treated to original footage from, for example, the Kennedy/Nixon election campaign. We are left in no doubt that this is an accurate portrayal of a world which now seems so out of touch: where smoking and drinking to excess in the office is normal, where women are objectified and dismissed (pre 60s feminism at its most disquieting), where the billboard presentation of a sinister American Dream shaped by mass production is as much a facade as that presented by many of the characters to their nearest and dearest on a daily basis.

And it is this which keeps you hooked: there is a gripping sense of something disturbing lying just under the surface - as it does with so many of its characters- and we are never very sure when the explosion will happen. It is very real, very unsettling and above all, a harsh reminder that we have a long way to go before we can really leave behind the legacies of this era.

By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Jun. 2010

The sets and clothes and hairstyles are so realistic it's like going back in time. It's a glamorous world if you're lucky enough to be part of it, but human foibles remain the same.

The most noticeable thing was the vast amount of smoking that goes on, along with copious amounts of drinking at all times of the day, in the office and out. Also, most women are there simply to look good and keep their men happy and the only non-whites are in menial jobs. You can even clip any old unruly child round the ear and the parent supports you for doing it. It's a different world, but oh-so-realistic of what went on before we all became more enlightened and P.C.

The lead man, Don, is as cool as they come, and has no qualms about having a few bits on the side despite having a gorgeous wife. The supporting males in the office add to the mix, as do the many glamorous office girls who're hoping to land a mad man. A special mention has to go to Joanie, the voluptuous office manageress, who must be one of the coolest, sexiest chicks on tv. She glides effortlessly around the office, looks great and is tougher than most of the men.

There are no cliffhanger episodes, but it's not that type of show. It's all about character interaction and how their lives slowly develop. Absolutely facinating, so I hope its not cut short in its prime, like so many great, but low rating US shows.

Remarkable. Utterly gripping, gorgeous to look at, fabulously well scripted, impeccable acting. All the more remarkable, then, that nothing much actually happens. Sure there are individual events and half a dozen longer threads woven through the series, but the real drama is found in how the characters relate to each other and themselves. Each character is complex, multi-layered, often deeply flawed, and fascinating. So, not one for people who like plenty of action. It will, however, handsomely reward those who take delight in dialogue and character. In my opinion, simply perfect.
