Mad Men plot

Set in the 1960s, Man Men focuses on the advertising world of that time, and in particular one advertising executive, Don Draper (Jon Hamm). At agency Sterling Cooper, Draper is under pressure to come up with groundbreaking creative ideas, while also dealing with all the temptations that come with success and money in 1960s New York.

Mad Men season 1

Back to the days when liquor was still an office supply and where men could lift the skirts of the female staff with impunity to see what color underwear they were wearing. In any case, the series manages to capture the zeitgeist well as far as I can judge it as someone who was born well after the sixties.

The decoration may be appropriate, visually it is otherwise a bit mediocre; in particular it is registered. The series therefore has to rely mainly on the acting, the dialogues and everything that is brewing beneath the surface. The facial expressions of the actors during dialogues are almost as important as what they say, a look often says more than words in this series and that is very nice.

The acting is strong, and there are some interesting characters. Draper, of course, whose past unfolds along the way. Campbell is interesting because I find him a very annoying character; quite self-centered, talking during pitches as if he has a monopoly on wisdom, when you can see how incompetent he is. Very well portrayed by the actor.

Still plenty of moments that are a bit dull (and that's where the lack of some extras in the visual area plays tricks), but also enough moments that are really strong, especially when Draper is philosophical about advertising. Like in the first episode, how he came up with Lucky Strike's tagline. Or later when he makes it clear to Rachel Menken that love is a concept that advertisers have introduced to sell stockings. Those are the most interesting moments for me.

On to the next season. 3*.
