Storyline

At the office, Duck wants to make partner, but Roger, being candid, tells him that his performance to date doesn't warrant such a move. Duck decides he has either to be more aggressive in looking for a better job elsewhere or in finding additional business for Sterling Cooper to warrant the partnership. Still at the office, the creative team is talking about the difficult time Paul seems to be having in Mississippi from what they see on the news, the good time that Don and Pete are probably having in Los Angeles, the Right Guard campaign and Bob Dylan. With the latter, Kurt asks Peggy to Dylan's concert after she expresses interest in his music. Peggy sees this as a date, whereas Kurt sees it purely as friends going out as he assumed she and everyone in the office knew he was gay.

Mad Men

Mad Men; one of the most acclaimed series by critics, loved by the fans and buzzed at the award shows, is a character driven series created by Matthew Weiner depicting the inner world of an ad agencies set in '60s in New York. The writing is sharp, elaborative, adaptive and exquisite that keeps the audience tangled in its not-so-likable and faulty world on the edge of their seat.

It is rich on technical aspects like projecting the chemistry among the characters, stunning cinematography, beautiful camera work, references mentioned in the conversations and the classic tone of the series that makes it supremely watchable.

The primary reason why the series stands alone is not only its nature to work in a metaphorical way but to weave out a poem from the sequence, is the genuine soul behind it that attains a certain closure in each episode. The performance objective is score majestically by the cast especially by the protagonist Jon Hamm who is supported convincingly by the cast like Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and John Slattery.

The practical conversations, the whistle-blowing dialogues, three-dimensional characters, excellent execution, finely detailed set-pieces, alluring costume design are the high points of the series that helps it enter the major league.

Season 02

The second act is deliberately slow and is aptly executed as the story demands for it to be, which is one of the main reason why it stands alone than any other series, as the concept is given the priority rather than focusing on the characters or actors, which also helps the makers to go fluently and visit unknown places.

The Jet Set

It is a bit slow and more character driven than your usual ones but since the plot demands for the characters to go off track and cool down a bit, it blends in appropriately with a satisfactory office politics and transactions.
