5 Amazing. Mad Men in the 1920sKurtisMovieLover | 12/03/2011 | See all KurtisMovieLover's reviews (125)This gritty potrayal of 1920s Atlantic City, in a time when alcohol was outlawed is brilliant. Its violent, and features strong sex and language so this show is one for the adults, although saying that I'm only 17 myself. It's a truley remarkable show, with an amazing cast and script. The icing on the cake is that the opening episode is directed by Oscar-winning director and living legend Martin Scorsese. This, along with Mad Men, is one of the best shows on television.
