Overview
Mad Men Carousel is an episode-by-episode guide to all seven seasons of AMC'sMad Men. This book collects TV and movie critic Matt Zoller Seitz s celebrated Mad Men recaps as featured onNew Yorkmagazine'sVultureblog for the first time, including never-before-published essays on the show s first three seasons. Seitz s writing digs deep into the show s themes, performances, and filmmaking, examining complex and sometimes confounding aspects of the series. The complete series all seven seasons and ninety-two episodes is covered.
Each episode review also includes brief explanations of locations, events, consumer products, and scientific advancements that are important to the characters, such as P.J. Clarke s restaurant and the old Penn Station; the inventions of the birth control pill, the Xerox machine, and the Apollo Lunar Module; the release of the Beatles Revolver and the Beach Boys Pet Sounds; and all the wars, protests, assassinations, and murders that cast a bloody pall over a chaotic decade.
Mad Men Carousel is named after an iconic moment from the show s first-season finale, The Wheel, wherein Don delivers an unforgettable pitch for a new slide projector that s centered on the idea of nostalgia: the pain from an old wound. This book will soothe the most ardent Mad Men fan s nostalgia for the show. New viewers, who will want to binge-watch their way through one of the most popular TV shows in recent memory, will discover a spoiler-friendly companion to one of the most multilayered and mercurial TV shows of all time.
It's the perfect gift for Mad Menfans and obsessives.
