#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Series Online Free – The professional and personal lives of those who work in advertising on Madison Avenue – self-coined “mad men” – in the 1960s are presented. The stories focus on those at one of the avenue’s smaller firms, Sterling Cooper, and its various incarnations over the decade. At the heart of these stories is Donald Draper, the creative genius of the company. That professional creative brilliance belies the fact of a troubled childhood, one that he would rather forget and not let anyone know about except for a select few, but one that shaped who he is as an adult and as an ad man in the need not only to sell products but sell himself to the outside world. His outward confidence also masks many insecurities as evidenced through his many vices, such as excessive smoking, drinking and womanizing – the latter despite being a family man – and how he deals with the aftermath of some of the negative aspects of his life. Plot: Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later at the newly created firm, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, located nearby in the Time-Life Building, at 1271 Avenue of the Americas. According to the show’s pilot, the phrase “mad men” was a slang term coined in the 1950s by advertisers working on Madison Avenue to refer to themselves. The focal point of the series is Don Draper, creative director at Sterling Cooper and a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the people in his life, both in and out of the office. The plot focuses on the business of the agencies as well as the personal lives of the characters, regularly depicting the changing moods and social mores of the United States in the 1960s.

Mundane, yet somehow brilliant
I’ll be the first to admit that Mad Men is a show about watching people go to work and live their lives. It should be dull and uninteresting, yet somehow it managed to grip me for a whole 7 seasons and left me wanting more.
The setting is a big part of it. The historical interest of the time (JFK’s assassination, the moon landing, England winning the World Cup, to name a few key points in the show) is enough to keep many gripped. It’s more than that though. The characters in themselves are worth following and you get invested in them as the seasons progress.
To be frank I didn’t like the first season. I just didn’t get the formula and was getting close to giving up on the show. I’m glad I didn’t though as it only improves from the second season onward.
The 60’s . . .
When this show first aired I couldn’t watch it. I’m 68 years old. I know. I was there. EVERYBODY was a liar and a cheat. The smoking, the drinking, the hypocrisy and the infidelities. An entire mindset created to consume. An entire mindset created to re-enforce the social structures that kept women stoned on Valium, barefoot/pregnant and in nighties. For me, when it aired, it was too true to life. I didn’t want to be reminded . . .
Now, 6 years later, I’m writing my autobiography and revisiting those times. Started watching Mad Men from S1-E1. This show is EXACTLY what it was like back then. EXACTLY. Young people: Students of history, contemporary anthropology, those of you in Theater/Acting Schools; watch this show. Take note.
The acting is superb, the art direction is exemplary and the production is flawless.
This show describes the very reason we took to the streets back in the 60’s. This show points directly at the issue of “the more things change, the more they stay the same”. This show clearly describes why the current generation may have to take to the streets again.
