Fifth about The Seventh

Mad Men – Season 1

Mad Men – Season 1: on this day and age when television series are, for the most part, plot-centered (those which major or minor story arcs are the reason for the series to exist), when a character-centered series appears, it takes some time to get used to the different pace and tone. Such was the case here; the first season calmly introduces the characters, their traits and relationships, and requires some patience, which is amply rewarded. Well-written and very well-acted (Jon Hamm and January Jones deserve special mention); one of the major strengths is the lack of any hint of political correctness about New York and its people in the 60’s. Quite well-done as well, even if the art direction seems almost aggressive, calling too much attention to itself.
