Hall of Faces: Who's the Best Character on Mad Men?

Deep in the bowels of CPN Studios, there lies a chamber only the greatest TV characters can enter – the funniest, the grumpiest, the maddest visages the television medium has to offer. There, we honor the breakout comic relief, the magnetically flawed protagonist, the one-time guest character that defines an entire series. This is where we hoard TV’s most valuable visages. This… is the Hall of Faces.With The Handmaid's Tale premiering its second season on Hulu on April 26th, Allison and Clint bring on Kate Kulzick of The Televerse and AV Club staff writer Gwen Ihnat to revisit the home of Elisabeth Moss' biggest Peak TV role, Mad Men! Which member of Sterling Cooper/SCDP/SCP makes it into our Hall of Faces - is it Peggy Olsen? Don Draper? Betty Draper? Joan Harris?
