How to Watch Mad Men Online

The hit show from AMC, Mad Men ran for an impressive seven seasons with over 90 episodes in total, from 2007 until 2015. Set in the 1960s, it follows Don Draper, played by Jon Hamm (R), as he works for a prestigious advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City.

The show derives its name from the coined nickname ‘mad men’ for Madison Avenue advertisers, which they supposedly created themselves.  Playing on the tropes and stereotypes of mid 20th century America, you see the heavy drinking, chain smoking, and philandering of the upper-class employees of the fictional marketing firm Sterling Cooper.
