Storyline

The professional and personal lives of those who work in advertising on Madison Avenue - self-coined "mad men" - in the 1960s are presented. The stories focus on those at one of the avenue's smaller firms, Sterling Cooper, and its various incarnations over the decade. At the heart of these stories is Donald Draper, the creative genius of the company. That professional creative brilliance belies the fact of a troubled childhood, one that he would rather forget and not let anyone know about except for a select few, but one that shaped who he is as an adult and as an ad man in the need not only to sell products but sell himself to the outside world. His outward confidence also masks many insecurities as evidenced through his many vices, such as excessive smoking, drinking and womanizing - the latter despite being a family man - and how he deals with the aftermath of some of the negative aspects of his life.

Trivia

According to an October 2013 article in Esquire Magazine, one of makeup artist Lana Horochowski's responsibilities was to make sure that Jon Hamm was clean shaven at all times. Hamm's facial hair grows exceptionally fast, and, during long shooting days, it would regrow to the point that stubble would become visible on camera. It wasn't unusual for Horochowski to have to shave Hamm three times during the course of one day of filming. In response to this revelation, Dr. Peter Hino, a dermatologist, cautioned viewers not to try shaving multiple times a day in emulation of Hamm, as it could prove irritating/damaging to the skin of a man with an average rate of beard growth.

Faboulous
18 March 2017 | by alexnapoSee all my reviews

When I started watching Mad Men, the rhythm of it felt slow.

Pretty quickly did I realize how much more powerful the slow story & plot development rhythm would be, allowing us to discover the characters, mostly in seasons 1 and 2, and then really be in the thick of it in subsequent seasons.

Indeed, this series has pushed character development so far that they are the entire and only reason why this series is interesting. The actual events happening at the advertising agency is a pretext to throw more things at those characters and have them deal with it. In fact, the characters are so interesting that there is practically no violence needed (except a few minor events) over 7 seasons to keep this series going. I find that tremendously respectable to be able to craft a series in this way, not using gun shots and bombs to make it lively.

Finally, I have not lived in the early 60's time period the series is set in, but I can only say that it's all seemed to me very interesting and all these "vintinge" props and costumes, hair style and such made it all the more fascinating to watch.

Absolutely great work.
