Simply the best...,
This review is from: Mad Men - Seasons 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
Mad Men is quite simply, the best written drama on television. Poignant, witty, charming and exceptionally well styled, it beautifully captures a fascinating time in American history when men were men and women were...well...oppressed. As someone with a long standing interest in American history, the detail that this stunning show goes into is really quite outstanding. From just 30 seconds of a song or a Beatles ticket landing on a desk, Mad Men manages to capture the feelings and moods of a nation. However you must be careful as this show is addictive. You won't sleep or leave the house until you finish it and this is why buying a box set is dangerous. You may also take up smoking again and drink far too much whiskey. If you are prepared for this however, Mad Men will charm you more than Don Draper and a martini.
