Don Who? 22 Reasons Roger Sterling Is the Best Mad Man

May 11 2014 - 5:30am

Don gets all the glory, but Roger Sterling (John Slattery) is by far the most entertaining man on Mad Men [1]. Sure, he's been through some rough times, but it's nothing compared to Don's constant existential crises. Even his big problems (like having a love child with his former secretary), kind of get smoothed over with a wink and a compliment; he's absolutely impossible not to love. This week, he confronts his daughter at her new commune (mystery: solved [2]) and yet again made me laugh, swoon, and feel for him. Here's everything I — and you should — love about Roger.

He's Very Cultured

He's Philosophical

He Makes Hilarious Puns

He's Good With Kids

He Loves a Good Time

He's Unapologetic

But Hey, He Knows What He Wants in a Woman
