Mad Men is a unique show to binge-watch because of its slow burn pace, spending most of its time subtly laying the groundwork for impending personal disasters and focusing on small details with big meanings.
The driving force behind these conflicts is Mad Men‘s characters, each of whom spends the series on their own personal journey rife with pain, confusion, occasional triumph, and a lot of cigarettes.
Jon Hamm weaves a lifetime of uncertainty, self-loathing, and compulsive behavior into his portrayal of Don Draper, the mysterious ad executive with a painful past.
Hamm does a brilliant job portraying Don’s various failed attempts at finding happiness, stability, and self-acceptance.
Don and Peggy’s tempestuous relationship anchors the show, as they each understand things about each other that no one else does.
