5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly sublime, 16 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Mad Men - Complete Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This is quite simply one of the best American TV series ever made (only the West Wing is better). It's set in a Madison Avenue advertising agency at the start of the 1960s, a time when gender roles were still shockingly pigeon-holed - the men are executives who behave more or less however they want and the women are either waiting to get married (secretaries) or already married (housewives). But we begin to see the first cracks appearing in the bastion of male domination and it's this feeling of being on the cusp of a new era that really draws you in. There is very little 'action' or 'drama' - the whole thing is driven by the wonderful setting, characters and script. The plots develop slowly over many episodes, revealing a world that seems alien in many ways yet was completely real just two generations ago. Fabulous stuff.
