Bustle points out 13 moments from the series premiere “that you might want to look out for the second time around.”, ranking the best TV show soundtracks, places Mad Men at No. 7 because the show “pulls from a huge catalog and punctuates nearly every episode with something poignant as the credits roll.”

Metro, noting Mad Men‘s imminent exit, declares that the show has been lauded for its “visual ambiance, dialogue, character depth and accurate depictions of American society of the 1960s and 70s.”

SundanceTV offers a Mad Men personality test, asking “Would you be quick-witted like Peggy, debonair but troubled like Don, or just plain sexy like Joan”?
