I was hooked from the first episode. Finally someone is portraying the ad industry correctly.
That is how all drama should be on TV.
The scripts are sharp, intelligent and the characters interesting.
More importantly the show is very faithful to the period in every detail. Even the color has the quality of a Douglas Sirk movie.
The direction it takes,however after Season 1 is another matter. This could be a two season show at the most, unless the quality is maintained. Certainly the main subject matter "advertising in its heyday" is rich in stories, from takeovers to breakaways let alone the weird and wonderful personalities that created the industry.
