Mad Men (Season 1)



早前從P小姐那邊讀過Mad Men這套電視劇的介紹,題材好像有點偏鋒,覺得並不太吸引,所以便一直沒有理會這個劇。上兩個月看Truth Blood一些的劇評,有作者提到True Blood跟Mad Men是這個season最吸引觀眾兩套電視劇集。因為我是TB的粉絲,所以看罷這劇之後,也有興趣去去証實一下Mad Men是否這樣好看。

其實這套劇集也大有來頭,編劇原來是HBO連續劇Soprano的班底,而近兩屆的艾美獎,最佳電視劇均由Mad Men蟬聯,擊敗了Lost及House等強勁對手,我想這應該是信心的保証罷。

Mad Men中文譯廣告狂人,故事發生在美國的六十年代初期,描述主角Don Draper及他的廣告公司Sterling Cooper的故事,內容環繞當年的美國人的價值觀,辦公室政治,及家庭和社會的轉變。

剛剛看完season one,故事開始時有點緩慢,尤其是導演要花時間介紹出場的人物,他們的心態及當年的廣告行業。不過若觀眾能"捱"完首四、五集之後,故事便開始作多方面的推進。最後有連場的衝突,故事亦被帶上高峰,成功令觀眾投入劇情之中,的確是出色的作品。



主角Don Draper出場已是一位事業有成,置身在紐約曼克頓廣告公司中,擔任的Creative Director的職位。主角是一位在公司中舉足輕重的人物,公司的業務,全在乎於主角能否把廣告的"橋",成功sell比客戶,接納及採用。

主角表面上是位成熟而穩重的男仕,有一個漂亮的妻子及兩個小孩,過著幸福美滿生活的中產家庭。但暗地裏,他有不為人知的秘密過去,接二連三的婚外情,更要對付公司內部,下屬野心勃勃的挑戰,周旋在事業和家庭的問題之間,其實是過著一個極之複雜的生活。

此外劇中亦有一眾的配角,每人都有不同的背境和懷著不同目的,加上辦公室政治的爾虞我詐,使劇情變得既複雜又精彩,實在值得推介。

題外話,Blu-ray 的質素實在太好了,自從看了SEASON 5的The OfficeBR後,清晰的畫像簡直是無可擊。於是在假期前又心思思走去買了Mad Men的BR版,可能是一失足成千古恨。BR可能容量更多的關系,BR版的Mad Men竟然比DVD更加平宜(...平少少啦),看dvd的日子應該是回頭太難了。
