Overview

An episode-by-episode guide to the first three seasons of the sexy, stylized, and provocative television drama
Sophisticated, stylish, and controversial, Mad Men has been mesmerizing its many fans since it first appeared on screen. The Hitchcock-inspired title sequence, the period Madison Avenue set design, and the impeccably styled costumes have all garnered admiration, but it is the quality of the scripts and the intensity of the drama that keeps people coming back for more. What is Don Draper's big secret? Will Pete and Peggy's love ever see the light of day? and How on earth do they manage to smoke and drink so much over the course of a working day? These questions and countless like them have been debated by fans on the Guardian's blog, and the results are gathered in this brilliant collection, along with in-depth interviews with the show's creators and stars.

Well for starters, no, it’s not. But how could it be the ultimate guide to “Mad Men”? It came out in 2012! Back when Lane Pryce was still counting beans and dating bunnies, when Roger was first getting experienced, and when Joan was throwing herself to the Jaguars! Instead it’s a sort of time capsule – a time capsule of a time capsule, as it were – real-time content as it appeared in The Guardian’s blog, hot on the heels of each episode’s debut in the first three seasons, complete with speculations and theories by commentators and the public that we, in our God-like remove, can sit back and smile at. Which, frankly, is a considerable part of the book’s charm, because it’s fascinating to watch viewers and fans do (to read the rest of this review, please go to: http://wp.me/P23AlC-vc)
