Excerpt: After a long delay, Mad Men came back this past spring and was able to continue to show why it is among the best that television currently has to offer. With four seasons already in the bag and an ending in sight, Made Men is basically cashing in on all that has been established thus far, as the direction and look of the series is still fantastic and all of the actors are perfectly in tuned to playing the roles they have created.
Conclusion: Sure, it may have lost its chance to claim Emmy history because of that upstart Showtime series ' Homeland ,' but 'Mad Men' still reigns supreme as what may be the finest piece of television ever crafted. That is a bold statement that will likely have plenty of readers up in arms, but the series simply excels at everything from writing and directing, to displaying a whole host of incredibly distinct and powerful performances.
Excerpt: I heard, in an interview somewhere, that one of the reasons network television is faltering somewhat is because of cable television. That’s an odd statement, but the way the man told it – it actually made perfect sense. He said that network TV, once the only “go to” place for quality programming, is now having to compete against networks like AMC, USA, the CW and others due to their original programming.
Excerpt: The Film Mad Men continues to set the bar high for television drama. Although this is the first of Mad Men 's five seasons to not win the Emmy for best drama (that went to Showtime's Homeland ), don't be fooled. Mad Men: Season Five shows that the AMC drama definitely has a lot left in the tank.
Conclusion: Despite what you may have heard from longtime fans, if (and that's an if ) Mad Men took a step backward in this fifth season, it wasn't a very big one. The series still continues to be one of the most consistently well written shows on television. That said, if you don't simply surrender to this show's deliberately slower rhythm, there's no way to really enjoy it.
Excerpt: Trots att jag sett väldigt mycket när det gäller tv-serier har Mad Men gått mig ganska obemärkt förbi. Med tanke på alla serier som släpps vore det visserligen konstigt att jag skulle ha koll på allt men med tanke på denna series kaliber är det ändå lite anmärkningsvärt. Visst känner jag till namnet och någonstans i bakhuvudet har jag för mig att jag hört att serien vunnit flertalet stora priser.
