More Than Meets the Eye in the Ads of Mad Men

Mad Men is a good chunk into its sixth season: the initial excitement of the premiere is over, and it’ll be awhile before we’ll all start gearing up for the finale.

If you’re like me, you’re looking for juicy tidbits and insights to add extra interest (as if there’s not enough going on at SCDP already). If you want to impress at the next day’s water cooler chat sessions, check out Wired’s weekly commentary on the ads featured in and created by the characters in Mad Men, and issues that they tap into that run throughout that episode. These interesting mini-essays go a little deeper than the topical hooking up, breaking up, behind-closed-doors wheeling and dealing, and shameless business deals that often get the most attention. Just goes to show that there’s more thought put into the production and writing of this show than meets the eye– it’s no wonder it’s the first (and only) basic cable show to win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.

One thought on “More Than Meets the Eye in the Ads of Mad Men

  1. Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating
    a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you
    have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!
