The Los Angeles Times has an article about the breakout shows of the year, in anticipation of the Emmys. The shows they love are Samantha Who?, Damages, Gossip Girl, Pushing Daisies, Breaking Bad, and of course, Mad Men.

The settings though never distract from the struggles that take place within. Hamm notes that if the AMC show were instead on a network, “it would be, ‘Let’s time travel to the ’60s and wasn’t everything funny back then?’ We’d learn a lesson at the end of every episode about how far we’ve come. And our show isn’t like that at all.”
