Madmen is a show surrounding the lives of people working in a reputed ad agency called the Sterling Cooper. The protagonist of the show is Don Draper who is a talented, good looking person but is also coy. He works as a creative writer in the agency. While the show not only revolved around the professional life of the characters. It also gave us an insight into their personal lives. Don’s wife Betty also plays an important role. She is portrayed as a typical housewife of mid-century.
Don’s life to the outsiders is a matter of envy or jealousy but when you have a closer look, it is not as pretty as it seems. He is unsatisfied with his marriage which is proved by his involvement with other women. He has had an unhappy childhood but his self-confidence hides his insecurities deep within. This also affects his personal life. The show continues by showing the intermingling of love life and professional life of the workers. The series has also been criticized for its sexist approach towards women.
The show ends with the characters starting a new life and the last scene shows the protagonist meditating on a hilltop and the show ends with the coca-cola ad which left the viewers to interpret whether Don created the ad or not.
