Season one takes place between March and November 1960 It shows the contrasting roles of woman at home and in the work place. Characters like Peggy and Joan work in a office for the ad men characters like Betty Draper is the epitome of a house wife of the time. It also shows how women were very much second class citizens at that time, the women in Sterling Cooper work for the men and are there to be patronised and flirted with.

  7. 7. Costumes One of the things the show became famous for was the glamourous costumes, especially the females. Christina Hendricks and January Jones both appear in constantly changing outfits including frocks, negligees, cocktail dresses and elegantly dressed hair. In 2012, costume designer Janie Bryant told ‘Slate’ that she always repeats one costume of Peggy’s from the previous season during the next season’s premiere. Bryant said that she “(loves) that tradition for Peggy because I think that that is all is really based on reality. That’s what we would do in real life: We repeat our clothes.”
  8. 8. Props The actors do not smoke real cigarettes, they smoke Ecstacy herbal cigarettes which are tobacco and nicotine free. On the scenes featuring smoking, Weiner stated: "Doing this show without smoking would've been a joke. It would've been sanitary and it would've been phony."When ask what it’s like to smoke herbal cigarettes, Jon Hamm (who plays Don Draper) told Vulture, “Terrible. They taste like a mixture between pot and soap.”

  10. 10. Reviews Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reported said each episode "unfolded like a small movie", calling it "one of the best character studies anyone has put on television in some time -- an adult drama of introspection and the inconvenience of modernity in a man's world." The New York Times called it "both a drama and a comedy and all the better for it, a series that breaks new ground by luxuriating in the not-so-distant past."
  11. 11. Awards It was highly praised for its excellence in writing, acting, and art design. It was acknowledged with numerous honours from industry awards, including the: Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series, the Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Series, and a Peabody Award. Overall 67 Wins and 166 nominations
  12. 12. Favourite Female Character Joan Holloway, played by Christina Hendricks, is the bombshell of Sterling Cooper, the advertising firm the show revolves around. Yes, she’s fun and is not looking for a husband anytime soon and is sleeping with one of the older and married partners in the firm, Roger Sterling, but she actually has a heart. Even though she is mean to Peggy, the new girl, sometimes. She always means well. She truly wants to help her. We get to see that soft side of her especially when Roger has a heart attack. She’s weak and even more bitchy than usual. She loves him even though she doesn’t want him to know. After he has a heart attack, Roger comes to work to assure his ‘Lucky Strike’ clients that he’s okay. You can see the worry and the fear on her face when she sees him, making the audience warm to her.
  13. 13. Favourite Male Character Don Draper is the lead protagonist of the show. He’s the popular creative director at Sterling Cooper that everyone loves and respects. Well, almost everyone. Jon Hamm plays him so well. Alternating between the cheating husband, the loving man, and man hiding away his past, Jon Hamm pulls Don Draper off perfectly. Don Draper is adored by every woman that knows him. Every time Don remembered that life he once had, you could see him weak and afraid human, and you could see the real Don Draper that he is trying to hide.
  14. 14. Favourite Episode My favourite episode was episode 12 ‘Nixon Vs Kennedy’ the show tackled the 1960 presidential election between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. I would imagine that in any other show, they would be rooting for Kennedy as we all know that he wins, but the characters in Mad Men were rooting for Nixon especially that Sterling Cooper was handling his campaign. The suspense build up was incredible not because I wanted to see the reaction of the characters when they found out that Nixon lost to Kennedy. Another reason I enjoyed this episode is because they threw a massive office party to celebrate The other reason I loved this episode so much is because we got to see the other side of Don Draper. It was in that episode that we discovered who he truly is because Pete Campbell tries to blackmails him. The flashbacks revealed all, I wasn’t a huge fan of the flashbacks of him when he was a kid, but I enjoyed the his memories as an adult in the army.
