Goofs

Pete and Trudy's new apartment is at Park Ave. and 82nd. At the end, Pete looks out the apartment window on a view of Central Park that is impossible from that location. He's looking from the top of the Park, directly south, as though he's on 110th (or higher) between 5th Ave. and 8th Ave. (which encompass the width of the Park). With this impossible view, Pete takes in a nighttime skyline that includes the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building; this is the New York equivalent of "all windows in Paris look out on the Eiffel Tower."

Mad Men

Mad Men; one of the most acclaimed series by critics, loved by the fans and buzzed at the award shows, is a character driven series created by Matthew Weiner depicting the inner world of an ad agencies set in '60s in New York. The writing is sharp, elaborative, adaptive and exquisite that keeps the audience tangled in its not-so-likable and faulty world on the edge of their seat.

It is rich on technical aspects like projecting the chemistry among the characters, stunning cinematography, beautiful camera work, references mentioned in the conversations and the classic tone of the series that makes it supremely watchable.

The primary reason why the series stands alone is not only its nature to work in a metaphorical way but to weave out a poem from the sequence, is the genuine soul behind it that attains a certain closure in each episode. The performance objective is score majestically by the cast especially by the protagonist Jon Hamm who is supported convincingly by the cast like Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and John Slattery.

The practical conversations, the whistle-blowing dialogues, three-dimensional characters, excellent execution, finely detailed set-pieces, alluring costume design are the high points of the series that helps it enter the major league.

Season 01

The first act is aptly written and executed that flaunts its skills through various sequences whether it be then office politics, emotional drama, love track, business tactics or thought-provoking policies which depicts the wide range of the series that it not only attempts to reach but grasps it and holds it throughout the course of it.

New Amsterdam

It not only offers palpable surrounding to its supporting cast but breeds essential ingredients for it provide equitable taste that is nutrient and juicy with a perfect amount of balance not overpowering any of its dependent material.
