Have you ever seen the show "Mad Men" and if so, what is your opinion of it?

Asked by jca2 (16462points) October 29th, 2020

Mad Men was on from 2007–2015, which I know qualifies as Ancient History in TV Land.

I’ve been wanting to watch it for a long time (along with so many others like Sopranos and Breaking Bad), and am finally watching now. I’m in the middle of the 4th season.

I love period pieces, love the old sets, clothes, etc. which, a lot of items were things in my grandparents’ house when I was growing up (plaid Thermos jugs, rotary phones, Mid-Century furniture). I also am finding Don Draper to be gorgeous, which is icing on the cake.

I only watched about 5 episodes. I liked it, because I really liked the sets, cinematography, decor, clothing, many of the same reasons you mentioned.

Watching the women being treated badly was a little tiresome for me.

I’ve been thinking about trying it again.

I absolutely loved it. It reminded me of my years of growing up. And yes, it doesn’t hurt to look at Don Draper.

Never seen it sorry.

I think it’s the best retrospective on the 50s and 60s ever to appear on television. You have to see it to remember just how ordinary a blue cloud of indoor cigarette smoke could be.

It never seemed to excite any of my friends so I never heard enough to make me feel the need to watch it. Now it’s ancient history so still haven’t had a reason to watch. Glad you’re enjoying it tho
