Mad Men is an AMC drama series that follows Don Draper, an advertising executive at a New York agency called Sterling Cooper. The series is set in 60ís and follows Draper and his co-workers, friends and family as they deal with the changes going on in the world around them and work hard to rise to the top of their careers and stay ahead of the curve. As the show takes place in the 60ís, gender roles are also often addressed in the series.
According to AMCís website, the series will continue to ďblur the lines between truth and lies, perception and realityĒ and Draperís private life will get complicated in a new way.
Mad Men is one of those series that I didnít watch in its first season and regret it. The premise didnít really interest me. Then people started raving about this show and yet I still havenít gotten around to getting caught up. So while I might check out the second season premiere, Iím guessing Iíll have to go back and watch the first season in order to fully appreciate Mad Men.
