2007-2015, 7 Seasons
Mentioned all the flipping time.
Drama set in an advertising agency at the beginning of the 60's, focusing on the enigmatic, hard-drinking, womanising ad-man Don Draper. The period detail and sharp scripting will probably pull you in pretty quickly, and the story arc that takes in a whole decade of American history will keep you hooked.
Compellingly dramatic but filled with surprising moments of humour, Mad Men is agreed by many to be one of the best TV dramas ever, Hywel and Jamie enthusiastically concur.
If you've ploughed through the whole thing and come out lost, alone and confused the other side, give Hywel's spoiler-filled Mad Men Blog post a read. If you're thinking about giving it a go take a listen to our Mad Men special first.
