The testosterone-fueled world of 1960s advertising got a spotlight in 2007 thanks to “Mad Men.” AMC’s critically-acclaimed drama hit all the right notes: it had swanky 60s fashion, swaggering Jon Hamm as lead Don Draper, and soap opera drama. It even introduced to us Elizabeth Moss as a long-suffering victim of the patriarchy, a role she was later to take to dystopian extremes in “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
“Mad Men” ran for seven seasons, delivering many twists and turns and even more cigarettes and glasses of whiskey. If you want to see what all the fuss was about, now is a great time due to the entire series being available for free through Amazon’s IMDb TV.
Watch Mad Men Free on IMDb TV
All seven seasons and 92 episodes are available free through Amazon’s IMDb TV. You can watch the show online through the Prime Video App. The app supports Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, and more. The streams are in HD quality, which is a big plus for a free streaming service.
The only drawback is the ads. Since IMDb TV is a free streaming service, you have to watch around 5-10 minutes of ads during each episode. While you cannot skip these ads, you can have an ad-free viewing experience by buying seasons of Mad Men for $6.99 per season. (Season 1 costs $4.99 for some reason). While it costs just under $47 to buy all seven seasons of Mad Men, you own them and can watch whenever, and as many times, as you want
Other Streaming Services
Although AMC was Mad Men’s original home, it’s currently unavailable through the AMC app or any streaming services that carry AMC. It’s not even available if you are a subscriber to AMC+. The current deal grants Amazon exclusive rights to Mad Men through the summer. However, AMC will have the right to air the show again this fall.
What Mad Men a Good Binge
“Mad Men” is well worth the watch for many reasons, like its acting, costumes, and cinematography, but focusing on gender dynamics might be the most important. Well before the “me too” era, it managed to convey the perils of breaking out of traditional molds of womanhood. The fact that it does so with a fashionable flair and drinks sporting a citrus peel makes it all the better.
