Thanks to a major deal signed in 2020, all seven seasons of Mad Men are available to stream for free with ads on Amazon’s IMDb TV service. Watch for the equally fascinating evolution of Don’s protégé Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), who starts out as Don’s secretary before coming into her own as a creative force in the ad agency. Peggy blazes a trail for women in advertising in the 1960s while facing pervasive sexism even from colleagues who are ostensibly sympathetic.
