Fifth about The Seventh

Mad Men – Season 2

Mad Men – Season 2: there is a great sense of continuity in the second season; it picks up where the first one left off (not necessarily in the plot, but in the spirit and mood). It retains everything, either bad (the art direction, too pristine, bothers; there is, at least, a reason for it to be so, as it fits the subject of the show) or good (pretty much everything else: writing and acting, in particular, remain top-notch; Jon Hamm and Vincent Kartheiser are very solid, in particular). The characters and their stories evolve in an engaging way. Interestingly, even thought the series avoids the traditional cliffhangers, the tense serenity at the end of each episode works as effectively, if not even more so.
