News & Interviews for Mad Men: Season 1
It's way too obvious, as is much too much in "Mad Men," though the show clearly fancies itself one sly fox.
Watching it is like diving into a photo spread from an Eisenhower-era issue of Look magazine.
He's one of the head sharks in a tank of ruthless Mad men whose mission is to seduce an increasingly savvy public.
Jon Hamm's best role. Christina Hendricks' breakthrough role. Matthew Weiner's tale is a rarity: a great show that is also rewatchable.
Dramatic, funny, insightful - and that's just in the first episode. This is a compelling slice of nostalgic Americana, looking back at a period of great change with knowing winks and uber-cool style.
The writing is extremely weak, the plotting haphazard and often preposterous, the characterizations shallow and sometimes incoherent; its attitude toward the past is glib and its self-positioning in the present is unattractively smug...
"Mad Men" delivers a textured feel of intimate immediacy - not just in a kinetic sense, not just in a period sense, but in the actual outward appearance of itself as a product.
Audience Reviews for Mad Men: Season 1

Feb 07, 2021RATING: B+ Creator: Matthew Weiner Mad Men is set in the New York City of the 60s. The Ensemble Cast is superb, the Writing is magnificent as is the Direction. I think I really don't have to write much about the Production Design or the Production Values in general cause you don't always see something as superbly crafted as it is the case in Mad Men. And if you start watching the show you really won't want to stop.
Apr 16, 2020المسلسل يلقي نظرة عن قرب على عالم الدعاية والإعلان وثقافة الشركات في أميركا الستينات، في مرحلة تأسيس عالم نيوليبرالي وثقافة شراهة واستهلاك.
Mar 20, 2020For a first time watcher season one needs patience and some time. However, the series starts to evolve and become what mad men is. For the second time watchers season one is a complex and very well written beginning. Each character have from the day one their complexity already flourished. Seen glimpses of what Draper and others are and how it will play at all other seasons, including the very end of the finale confirms the great work that is done in mad men.
Jan 29, 2020Back to the time of defined gender roles, of charming women and powerful men. When everyone smoked. When drinks were plenty. When seduction was the way. Watch it for the style, for atmosphere, for exaggeration.
Jan 07, 2020I lapped up Mad Men when it originally aired because it's smart, sexy, beautiful, poignant, educational, and everything from the cast to the costumes to the sets and soundtrack are completely impeccable. If you didn't live through the 1960s, you will learn and gain new appreciations and insights into your grandparents/parents. I'm rewatching currently and in the #metoo era it's even more fascinating and you can see why all those old white men don't understand and long for the "good ol' days." Joan and Peggy's arcs have grown even stronger and more interesting with time. One of my top 5 favourite shows of all time.
Dec 25, 2019La temporada más costumbrista de la serie. Se pinta más la época que en ninguna otra temporada.
Sep 20, 2019This is an amazing show from start to finish, I cannot say enough great things about the cast, the writing, the sets, the character development, the costuming, the music, the entire concept blew me away.
Sep 12, 2019Great period piece as well as a character piece. It's definitely a must-watch!
Mar 15, 2019"Mad Men" gives us a fascinating and nostalgic look back to the '60s workforce in New York as well as explores its characters with serious depth and dark humor.
