Mad Men on DVD
“Now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting, and modern,” Don Draper (Jon Hamm) reads aloud from a Frank O’Hara poem near the end of Mad Men’s second season. As he reads, Draper is reminded of how the world as he knows it is crumbling around him—from the culture of the workplace, to his family, to his very identity—as a result of both his own behavior and the turmoil of the 1960s. The decade is harrowing for everyone at ad agency Sterling Cooper, including secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), the lone woman in the boozy boys club, and aging playboy Roger Sterling (John Slattery), as well as Don’s wife, Betty (January Jones), who is starting to feel the full weight of The Feminine Mystique.
The Emmy-winning series for Outstanding Drama brings the changing years on board as characters of their own, through lush sets and costumes with painstaking attention to historical detail. This pairing of design and emotional heft makes Mad Men as captivating to the eye as it is to the heart, whose pace quickens every time the show’s orchestral theme song strikes up.
