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 07

The final act is powerful, poignant and offers a cathartic release to the viewers where the only game-changing and ground-breaking highlight is Hamm at the heart of it, who is achingly good and the makers too have wisely offered him enough range and space for him to flaunt his talent on screen.

Time & Life

Leaving the firm in a vulnerable state, the employees writhes in fear and the partners are struggling to survive giving their all in as a team which was utterly pleasing to encounter and to top it off, Hamm's performance is stellar.

Warning: Spoilers
I wonder if I'm imagining it but Don appeared older here. Maybe, he is worried even with his bold new idea as consolidation is about to take place in the firm.

Must we see that in the advertising agency any achievement is a signal to start boozing it up with your comrades?

We see what it could be like in getting your child into a private school.

Peggy's revelation about a child is quite revealing. Is that why she is experiencing difficulty in choosing a child for the commercial?

Perhaps, Don wanted a move to California to settle his furniture problem in the apartment. Or perhaps, he craves for his recent ex-wife who is now residing there.
