It's about cocktails and New York City and men in suits. It's about a time when Winston tasted good, like a cigarette should. It's about the glamor and horror of America's Camelot days, when there was still so much promise and hope but we had to walk a long dark road to get there.
It's about Don Draper, a terribly damaged human with the soul of a poet. It's about the birth of media and the magic of advertising. A Kodak carousel is not slide projector. It's a time machine, a circle of memories that lives forever in your mind.
