Best Netflix TV Shows: Mad Men
A one-season show too easy for you? Need even more to stream? Why not try something that’s considered one of the best Netflix TV shows and one of the best TV dramas, full stop. We’re talking about Mad Men.
The first five seasons of Mad Men are available on Netflix, which means you have almost 50 hours of high-quality television to keep you occupied while the snow piles up outside your door (plus Jon Hamm’s smoldering gaze to keep you warm).
Mad Men soars on a variety of strengths. The plot starts at a slow simmer, but gradually pulls you into the raging wildfire of the characters’ lives. The cast is superb, from the stars to the supporting roles to even the smallest appearances. And there’s just something enchanting about being transported back to the charm of the ‘60s, even as the show exposes the historical and personal problems that were eating away at that façade.
Let’s be honest: You’re snowed in. You aren’t going anywhere, and what else are you going to do? Whether its Mad Men, Sherlock, or any of the other greats in the Netflix streaming library, take a break from all the daily fuss and reward yourself with the best Netflix TV shows.
