A Mad Men Mixer

We mix it up and break it down: 

The characters
Who is Don Draper? This is the story of Mad Men in many ways, but from there we expand to major players such as Betty Draper, Pete Campbell, Roger Sterling, Joan Holloway, and Peggy Olson. But of course we can't neglect those who made Season One a blast, such as Helen and Glen Bishop, Dr. Arnold Wayne, and Lois "ciao ciao" Sadler. 

The relationships
So much of the power and resonance of Mad Men comes from how real the relationships feel. Roger and Joan, Don and Rachel Menken and Midge Daniels (and don't forget Betty!), Peggy and Pete. Head back with us and enjoy it all again with sparkling perspective and refreshing insights. 

The art of advertising 
Rewind and unwind with the Power Moves and Master of the Universe moments that Don unleashes upon Sterling Cooper's clients, and get up close and personal with the creative process, the art of the pitch, and the backstabbing and hobnobbing that's simply a day in the life for the mad men of Madison Avenue. (And don't forget to take off your shoes before entering Bert Cooper's office!) 

American life, '60s-style
What was it like to live in New York in 1960? Pretty swell… if you're white and male and a partner at a thriving ad agency. We dial into the demanded conformity and isolation of family life in the suburbs, the smoky and whiskey-soaked office life in Manhattan, and ask fun questions like: how often do Don and Betty brush their teeth? 

The history and politics 
This is this '60s before they were "The '60s," when the choice was Kennedy Kennedy Kennedy! versus a pre-tricky Dick Nixon for the White House. 

The technology 
Head back with us to the days when "call waiting" was simply an awkward way of saying you're waiting for a phone call. 

The entertainment and arts 
What books and movies and TV shows and music were influential to Mad Men's characters? 

Moments of hilarity 
For a drama, Mad Men certainly delivers its share of comedy. Harry Crane hanging out with Don in his tighty whities? Yes, we have that covered. 

Iconic sights and production notes
For the Mad Men obsessives (come on, join the club with us!): filming locations, vintage props, and insight from Mad Men's cast and crew. 

Questions and tidbits
From the big picture to the nitty gritty. How does Pete know where to find brand new Sterling Cooper employee Peggy's apartment on the night of his bachelor party? How does Don stay in shape? Where does Joan rank in the Sterling Cooper hierarchy? How have Peggy and Kenny Cosgrove's relationship evolved from the time of Belle Jolie to Topaz in Season Four? We need to know the answers to these things, and we're guessing you do as well!

Produced by TV Geek Army's editorial team, A Mad Men Mixer is an insanely and obscenely great value for Mad Men fans and TV geeks alike.

And all for $2.99 – you just can't beat that!                            

So buy it now and then tell all of your friends and family and co-workers, and tweet and Facebook share and help spread the word!
