My husband and I don't watch TV but we do rent or buy shows that look interesting. When we found MadMen, it was just mind-blowingly good. The characters are so complex and interesting and infuriating and the writing is so smart. Stories unfold with such subtlety and nuance and of course the timeframe (1960s) allows for some truly outrageous behaviour, sexism, racism, homophobia. All the things the characters don't say are as fascinating as the things they do. We are on the second go around of the series and wait with huge anticipation to add season 4 to our collection. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in smart adult drama.

Well written, attention to details,you will enjoy. Be careful not to start to watch it on a sunny day you may missed the few summer days that we have this year....

I ordered this not long after I bought and saw Season 1 ... and love both.
This has the usual Matthew Weiner touches, for which he is understandably lauded: the attention to period detail (well, except for some 21st century linguistic slip-ups); the subtle emotions, even when the chips are down; and the well drawn characters.
There are more revelations about Don Draper, and Betty heads for a meltdown, partially as a result of being left out of his true life. That was a way for a marriage to implode back then, and applies equally well now. (Even if identity checks and so on make secret lives less likely to occur, people will always find ways to hide the real them.)
The one quibble I have with the series is that everyone is so mannered - surely some people broke the rules, and not just while drunk. It still makes for excellently nuanced drama - but perhaps not as close to reality as Weiner might wish.

This is a very clever series which keeps getting better. You have to understand the satirical. it is more than just a story about an advertising company. It is more about how life was in the '60's. All the things that we now take for granted weren't allowed or expected. EG One of the women goes into a pub for a drink in the evening and causes everyone to turn their heads presuming she must be a prostitute.

It is not fast action but I am definitely hooked.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon October 6, 2011
Love, just love, all the Mad Men series. Everything is done right re the depiction of the 60's. The acting is superb and I am always waiting the next season to come out. I think you either love Mad Men or you don't, lent this series to a friend and he returned it the same day. He found it tedious. That I cannot understand.
I recommend this series anyway......give it a shot. You either get hooked or not.

Every season of Mad Men just gets better, the writing, acting, sets, story lines - this is one terrific show.
