If you’re just getting into Mad Men, clear your calendar. Coined for the advertising men who worked on Madison Avenue in the late 1960s, Mad Men is one of those character dramas that is rich in wit, intelligence and shockingly sexist. I enjoyed it but never became engrossed. I stopped after the first season but it’s all anyone’s talking about right now as it enters its 6th.
Rating: Metacritic ratings have increased significantly since the first season (jumping from 77% to 87%) and peaks at 94% in season 4. Might have to get back on board.
