It's easy to forget, given that we view it every week in our homes, that a TV show can be art. Mad Men is a work of art which is great whether you believe art should be appreciated for its style alone or also for its content.

Last week, we saw the announcement that David Beckham is to partner with The Haig Club to promote its new whisky. A fantastic looking bottle and an internationally regarded under 40 style icon looks like a smart move by Diageo in broadening the appeal to a younger demographic.

In the age of instant streaming and catch-up TV, who on earth bothers with box sets anymore? Clunky, brick-like things destined to take up far too much room on your sagging shelves. Er, well, the answer seems to be - a lot of people.

British TV: A National Embarrassment?

India Ross | Posted 09.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
India Ross

The growing interest in American TV as a substitute for our own is not simply an idiosyncrasy, it signifies of Britain's failure to keep pace with the cultural market. The relative incompetence of home-produced programming becomes apparent in the context of the global marketplace - beyond the iPlayer horizon, Britain is punching well above its weight.

Reality TV Is as Fictional as 'True Blood', But Nowhere Near as Good

Xavier Toby | Posted 07.08.2013 | UK Comedy
Xavier Toby

We're told reality TV is reality, but it's as scripted and manufactured as any episode of True Blood or Dexter or Mad Men. Except nowhere near as good. Those shows have vampires, serial killers and far better looking people. Watch them instead.

Fashion's Love of Social Media

Instead of being shut out or feeling excluded, customers are now connecting with the brands they love and feeling that they are part of an industry which has traditionally been closed off to outsiders. This increased level of interaction is allowing brands to monetize through awareness, engagement, passion and brand loyalty.

I often think I could have been (could be?) Don Draper - obviously - and always want to endure the train commute in and out of town dressed in an immaculate Mad Men outfit. And one day, most importantly, I'll add the stiff-brimmed Fedora. That's the important bit.

'Mad Men': Is There a Little Bit of Betty in All of Us?

Justin Myers | Posted 14.06.2013 | UK Entertainment
Justin Myers

Although her realm is the 1960s, Betty would, in fact, have been perfect for the Twitter generation - half the time she'd be posting cutesy Instagram pictures of cakes she'd baked or boasting about her home decor, and the rest throwing out shock-jock curveball rants about politicians, immigrants and Honey Boo Boo.

Liars, Damned Liars and 'Mad Men'

India Ross | Posted 26.05.2013 | UK Entertainment

The show has taken a critical beating over its token treatment of socio-political issues. Such complaints are wrongly based on a model of Mad Men as a broad cultural statement - The Wire for the WASP.

Tom Ward

Utopia was undoubtedly a show created with the best intentions, and despite the critiques I've just listed, it still rests high above the majority of the trash on TV in the quality stakes. When the plot was finally revealed, the show took a sharp turn for the better, it's just a shame this was only in the last two episodes.

The latest IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising) census reports that the proportion of senior women (Chair, CEO or MD) has risen from a paltry 13.5% last year to a more respectable 21.5% this year. That's an impressive shift albeit from a frankly astonishingly low base.

Outright sexism is such a rare sight in an office, it's fascinating to see it depicted as a recent historical curiosity in the fictional world of Sterling Cooper. But lately I've noticed that it parallels pretty well with attitudes that 21st Century women working in comedy, deal with all the time.
