Mad Men

Season 5 | Cast

[Programming note: We have reviews of only season five. maxpower03 did more Mad Men reviews which are available on his site.]

Mad Men is art, a gorgeous melodrama that sweeps you up in emotion and character like some sort of sexy tornado. While it's superficially about advertising in the '50s and '60s, at its heart are the complex relationships and hidden desperation of an ensemble of wonderfully-drawn individuals. As beautiful as it is inspiring, Mad Men is by turns funny, shocking and ambitious -- one of the most perceptive and layered series in modern television history.
