5 Reason why you should watch Mad Men

5 Reasons why you will get hook up with the plot of Mad Men, a HBO series that tells us the reality of the 60ís society from the perspective of advertisement agency.†

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I think Mad Men is one of the best television series in the†U.S.†in the last 20 or 30 years. I donít usually watch too many series because frankly, I rarely get hooked on the plot. But Mad Men, especially, is a well-written and well contextualized series set in the decade of the 60ís, where many important events marked the history of this country, like the hippie movement or the civil rights movement. These events defined the culture of an era and that's exactly what Mad Men tells us from the perspective of an advertising agency and all its members.


Mad Men demonstrates a realistic representation of society during the 60's with a true to life storyline and cultural cues that can be seen through the characters, scenery, costumes, gestures, social dynamics and historic events.


If you are tired of reality shows without intelligent content, if you're bored of documentaries about the wild, or if you donít want to see people fighting and getting drunk on television, this TV series is the perfect one for you.

To see scheduled times for Mad Men go to HBO ONLINE

Now pay attention, these are the reasons why you should watch Mad Men

5. Addictive:†The scenes are so well constructed in every episode, it would be impossible to skip the next one. The storyline is not full of action and violence, but I have to say that the plot is very dramatic and emotional and that is what really captivates the public.

4. The characters: Although we have to consider that Don Draper is the protagonist of the story and he is who carries the storyline, the other characters are charming and full of unexpected shades. Each has a defined personality that exemplifies the frustration or the wishes of society in the 60's.

3. New perspective of the 60ís:†Itís a series about old times which raises an innovative look and a reinterpretation of the 60ís showing a more powerful and complex angle than the image that has survived in history. Other series taking place in the middle of the twentieth century, have exploited topics such as World War II, the rock bands and changes in the political scene. Never before has one series been given so much importance to this particular issue: the dramatic transition of women into the professional world, which is something we now take for granted.

2. Excellent atmosphere: The use of the atmosphere, lighting, colors and costumes in the show are fully consistent with the plot. The atmosphere has such prominence that is integrated as part of the plot, almost as a living element. Along with the set, Mad Men offers a genuine atmosphere that is reflected it even in the smallest details like the cigarettes. The music featured in the series is not exactly what people might remember but what actually played on the radio during the 1960ís, it is one of the seriesí treasures.

1.The middle class is the protagonist: The series shows us the characteristics of the 60ís middle class, a class that desperately wanted to move up by any means possible. The characters have a dual morality that allows them to misbehave without being self-conscious. The series tells the story of a social class that seemed perfect but was deeply frustrated.

Mad men is not a series about the timeFeature Articles, it a series about the people.
