The Ultimate Guide to Mad Men : The Guardian Companion to the Slickest Show on Television
'Who could not be happy with all this?' Donald Draper, season one, episode two Sophisticated, controversial and stylish, "Mad Men" has been mesmerising its many fans since it first appeared on our screens in 2007. 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 are debated in this brilliant collection, which features comments and discussions from "The Guardian's Notes" from the Break Room blog coupled with in-depth interviews with the show's creators and stars. Whether you've been watching the series from the beginning or are new to the show, "The Ultimate Guide to Mad Men" is as compelling as the show itself.
