Mad Men Details

Mad Men is set in 1960s New York and airs on AMC. It's centered on Don Draper, an advertising executive with a shady past. He was married to Betty Draper and was rarely a loyal husband.

The drama is stylized and provocative, a symbol of its era. Along with Draper, Mad Men focuses on the overall, ruthlessly competitive world of Madison Avenue advertising. This is an ego-driven universe, one where key players make an art of the sell.

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.

Bert

Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
