A friend loaned us the first season of Mad Men because we had never heard of it other than to see them winning awards for best drama in the States. Now we know why; this is an amazingly intelligent and meticulously detailed window on this era in the USA. The characters are all so interesting as we see them interact with each other and the producers have been so careful to recreate the physical and social environment - right down to the food packaging. It is so interesting to observe how attitudes have changed and the attention to detail in terms of wardrobe and culture is truly commendable. The cast are terrific and that's all you need to know - don't miss this chance to travel in time.
