mad men. a new tv series i’ve been watching for the last couple of days. the setting is the life of people in the advertsing world in 1960s.
when watching this, mad men is kinda different from other series. you’ll notice instantly a lot smoking scenes in the series. the series also portays different interaction between men and women in the 60s. men seemed to be more masculine and dominant, while women looked in a weaker position and feminine. women spent most of the time at home, being responsible housewives, and most notably, absolutely scared of divorce issues. you’ll hardly find this in today’s society, especially in the western countries.
another interesting point is over racial issue. it seems that only white people are working at the top level. i dont know if that will chance in later episodes, but that’s my conclusion after watching the first three episodes.
more review to come in the coming days …
