Why the makers should consider Mad Men Season 8
Each episode of Mad Men is worth-the-watch and that’s exactly why fans are still hoping for Mad Men Season 8.
The series Mad Men is based out of a fictional advertising agency in New York. Mad Men is colloquially referred to as the advertising men working at Madison Avenue in Manhattan. The loose term was coined in the 1950s.
Before it aired the expectations weren’t too high as Mad Men was AMC’s first attempt at an original series. But nearly after a decade, it has set the Golden Age of Television.
Even though the show wasn’t that huge a success in its first season, it gained mass recognition at the Emmys and the Golden Globes giving it a broader audience.
The show is complete ‘character-driven’ which many a time poses as a challenge for the audiences. But in the case of Mad Men, things worked differently. The show had something unique and fresh to offer.
What makes the show popular
The series’ protagonist is played by actor Jon Hamm. Prior to the series nobody knew who Jon Hamm was.
Jon essays the role of Don Draper who is an advertising executive and a womanizer. He is also the creative director of a fictional advertising agency in Manhattan called Sterling Cooper. Draper eventually becomes the founding partner of the firm later renamed as Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
The series largely depicts the changing moods and social norms of the US during the 1960s. The show is so good that it is regarded as the greatest television series in the early 21st century.
Mad Men depicts the part of American society in the 1960s. Themes that are relevant to the show include – feminism, homophobia, adultery, sexism, drinking, anti-Semitism, racism and smoking.
Other themes include social mobility, atrocity and alienation that set the tone of the series. Close to the heels of that dictates the rampant corruption and the riveting panorama of cruelty and struggle spread across classes and races in Baltimore.
After gaining confidence over the success of Mad Men, AMC pumped in other hit original shows which includes Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul.
Where did Mad Men Season 6 End?
The series ends with Don picking his kids from school to show them the dilapidated brothel he grew up in. The ending might be perfect but the fans still can’t cope that the show won’t air anymore.
