All Seven Seasons Of Mad Men Have Dropped On Stan Today

All Seven Seasons Of Mad Men Have Dropped On Stan Today

If you want to take a step back in history and visit the absolutely bonkers world of advertising in the 1960s in New York City, then you're in luck.

Stan has secured the rights to stream all seven seasons of Mad Men from today.

The show follows 'the lives and careers of the ruthless ad men and women of the ego-driven world of Sterling Cooper & Partners'.

It helps viewers explore 'a time where the ad agency was revered, while shining a light on the sexism, homophobia, dubious family values and misogyny of the era, when smokers were enjoying the last guilt free years of the cigarette - and when America was undergoing tumultuous cultural change'.

It specifically focuses on Jon Hamm's character Don Draper, who has several ups and downs throughout the 92 episodes.

It has scored 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and became the first basic cable show in history to receive the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.

One of the many reasons why it is so revered is because it's such an accurate portrayal of what life was life back in the 60s. The alcoholism, smoking, counterculture, sexism, misogyny, racism and feminism of the decade are all brought to the forefront.

It can be a difficult watch at some points, especially considering this era isn't that far away in the history books.

You can now watch every episode to see how it all unfolds and whether it lives up to the hype on Stan now.
