Mad Men

Meet Don Draper, arguably the most succesful advertising executive in New York during the late fifties. He’s an invaluable asset for his company, Sterling Cooper, and the main product he sells is himself - handsome, articulate, self-assured, he’s able to seduce almost any company... or woman. But is he so flawless as he appears? Pete Campbell, a young co-worker who hopes to sit in Don’s chair soon, is willing to discover his weak points, and Betty, his young and beautiful wife, has been feeling for a long time that something’s wrong. To be sure, Don has a good share of secrets and demons, but he doesn’t let them get in the path he’s marked for himself. But how long can his almost perfect world endure? Mad Men is, first and foremost, the portrait of a time -the fifties and the sixties-, in an America rapidly changing, but still keeping much from its first half of the century customs. You’ll see a world which is now gone - liberal drinking and smoking, hats, cadillacs, and, above all, a strict separation of the male and female roles. Men brought the money home, while women took care of the house, and if they worked, it was mostly as secretaries, willing to service their bosses in everything they could. It was an elegant, harmonious universe, but destined to crumble in the long term. Nostalgia is definitely a big part of the show’s attractive. Also vital to the success of the show is its strong cast, with previously unkowns John Hamm and January Jones shining thanks to their acting skills, physical attractive and well-written roles. There’s a mistery storyline which unfolds along the seasons, but this is not a big thrills story. Its main strength, besides the period reconstruction, is the evolution of the characters and their relationships. Sterling Cooper is a microcosmos full of competitivity, but in the end everyone must row in the same direction, for, at any moment, the other ‘mad men’ of New York can take an important customer from right under your nose.
