Storyline

There is much going on at SCDP, both professional and personal. Don, Pete and Stan are the only people who are supposed to know about "Project K" (which is a presentation for Heinz Ketchup), as they had a clandestine meeting with Tim Jablonski behind Raymond Geiger's back. If they don't get the account no one is supposed to be the wiser. This three-man team gets a few surprises with regard to this work. Dawn is feeling vulnerable as the token black person on staff. Joan, whose resolve is strengthened by a visit by her old friend Kate, exerts her power at the office as she feels she is still treated as a glorified secretary despite being a full partner. And Harry helps Ken with a personal problem which he thinks will boost his career. These issues, in combination, result in a professional standoff between Harry and Joan. Meanwhile Megan's work is being noticed on the set of "To Have and to Hold" as she is given her first ever love scene, which she feels she needs to clear with Don. ... Written by Huggo

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 06

The sixth act is somewhat of a pre-climatic setup as it not only teases the audience for the upcoming journey but also builds up the characters and the plot accordingly to attain a steady narrative closure for the makers.

To Have And To Hold

The office politics is getting obvious and especially since it was written with a cheesy dialect and scattered structure whilst Hamm had an interesting emotional struggle to work on as its own medicine was getting bitter.
