Tv Season Info

Following his divorce from Betty (January Jones) and his decision to leave behind his old firm in order to create a new ad agency, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is finding himself adrift in a brave new world. As he sinks deeper into loneliness and alcoholism, it becomes increasingly clear that Don is unable to take care of himself as a single man, and that he needs to find himself a new wife as soon as possible. The rest of the cast are also struggling with new roles and responsibilities: Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) finds some bohemian friends and starts dating a hippie journalist (Charlie Hofheimer), Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) learns he's going to be a father, Roger Sterling (John Slattery) contemplates his growing obsolescence and Lane Pryce (Jared Harris) adjusts to life in America.

Critic Reviews for Mad Men Season 4

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (19)

After four seasons, this is still the hour of television that I find closest to perfection: intelligent, always involving and continually surprising.

Mad Men remains the best show on television.

Jul 25, 2010 | Full Review…

It remains relevant, poignant and artfully constructed as it launches its fourth season.

Jul 25, 2010 | Full Review…

Brooding and addictive, sleek and revelatory, Mad Men is back.

Jul 25, 2010 | Full Review…

The actual stuff of Mad Men's action is, essentially, the stuff of soap opera...this impulse might be worth indulging (briefly), but the problem with Mad Men is that it suffers from a hypocrisy of its own.

Nov 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The secret of Mad Men's addictive draw is the human profundity you try to read into this fascinatingly surfaced drama about an empty man who doesn't know who he is... a series so slick and so moreish you don't even know it's an advert.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

We have to watch the "Mad Men" characters figur it out for themselves. And finally, I care about turning in to watch that happen.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

No other series digs quite so deeply or provocatively into the American psyche and culture.

Jul 25, 2010 | Full Review…

Mad Men's fourth season is all about selling - ads, bodies, and souls.
