Synopsis: A drama about one of New York's most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s, focusing on one of the firm's most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper.
Look away if you haven't seen the final 'Mad Men' episode. In a recent interview, Jon Hamm reveals his own interpretation of the show's last moments. And it's far less cynical than most.
Plus: An interview with the real life ad man behind "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke," and a reappraisal of Schwarzenegger's late-period career.
For a series with such an intimate understanding of '60s culture, "Mad Men" proved equally aware of the ever-changing modern times.
'Mad Men' reexamined the meaning of "mass culture"—the way it shapes our desires and disappointments, our memories and histories, our sense, as this season's fourth episode had it, of 'Time & Life.'
