Mad Men is back for a seductive and intriguing new season. From writer and executive producer Matthew Weiner, Season 6 leads the audience into the captivating world of 1960's New York. Season 6 finds the characters dealing with the shocks and social upheaval of 1968, one of the most-turbulent years in American history. Don Draper has returned to his bad habits and is now carrying on a dangerous affair with the wife of a friend, heart surgeon Arnold Rosen. His wife Megan has found success as a soap-opera actress, but feels more distant from Don than ever.
If all this sounds heavy and ponderous, then the fault is mine alone, because Mad Men is also about pleasure -- primarily for those viewers who have invested so much in these rich characters over the past five seasons.
