Tv Season Info

Series 6 finds the characters dealing with the shocks and social upheaval of 1968, one of the most-turbulent years in American history. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has returned to his bad habits and is now carrying on a dangerous affair with the wife of a friend, heart surgeon Arnold Rosen (Brian Markinson). His wife Megan (Jessica Paré) has found success as a soap-opera actress, but feels more distant from Don than ever. Meanwhile, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) deals with the pressures of a new job, Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) watches as his marriage falls apart and Betty Francis (January Jones) attempts to get her life back on track.

Critic Reviews for Mad Men: Season 6

Everything old isn't new again. Everything is just suddenly old.

If all this sounds heavy and ponderous, then the fault is mine alone, because Mad Men is also about pleasure -- primarily for those viewers who have invested so much in these rich characters over the past five seasons.

America's current sense of insecurity is Weiner's touchstone.

Wow, just wow.

Weiner's end-game for his leading man does not appear to be brightly lit. Nor is Season 6 of Mad Men off to a particularly sparkling start creatively while we wait for the worst to come.

The series always proves energetic when depicting Don's trippy business trips.
