Mad Men Tells The Story of A Scotch-Soaked Mad Ad World

Mad Men premiered on AMC in 2007, thus reminding a world that otherwise may have forgotten about the peak of one of the flashiest and most lucrative industries. Based in the 1960s, Mad Men is set in a time of blatant misogyny and obvious prejudice– which made the show controversial in the 21st century. Nonetheless, it’s writing, acting, and design made it an instant hit– perhaps the most successful entertainment property based on the advertising industry. Predecessors include movies like The Hucksters, The Thrill of it All, and Putney Swope; and TV series Bewitched, Thirtysomething, and Bosom Buddies.
