Product Overview

In the glamorous and ego-driven world of advertising, everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what it seems. Set in 1960 New York, Mad Men reveals the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue's "Golden Age," where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold. And no one plays the game better than Don Draper (Golden Globe-winner Jon Hamm), the biggest ad man -- and ladies' man -- in the business.

This three disc collection includes all 13 episodes from Season One of Mad Men!

Editors Note
Note Matthew Weiner, a writer and executive producer for THE SOPRANOS, may have set this series in the picture-perfect 1960s, but his characters are just as scheming as the mobsters on his last show. MAD MEN begins in 1960 on Manhattan's Madison Avenue at the fictional ad agency of Sterling Cooper. Creative director Don Draper (Jon Hamm) rules the halls of his company and the hearts of every woman he meets, while his wife, Betty (January Jones), struggles to be the perfect mate and mother in a suburb upstate. But just as in the world of advertising, Don may not be all that he appears.^In MAD MEN, the glass ceiling is dangerously low, and sexism reigns in a way that may shock modern viewers. But this isn't the prim '60s of THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW; Weiner's characters seduce, smoke, and swig with abandon--often within the walls of Sterling Cooper. MAD MEN takes equal parts substance and style to create an addictive cocktail that fully earned its freshman season wins at the Golden Globes for Best Dramatic Series and Best Actor in a Drama.

ReviewSource Variety
Review At a time when most programs seek to dazzle viewers with big, bold concepts, the pleasures of "Mad Men" refreshingly arise almost wholly from small, impeccably detailed touches. Set in 1960, this breezy serial about Madison Avenue ad men (hence the title) circa 1960 revels in dated images of white-collar workers boozing in the boss' office, harassing female employees, smoking incessantly and openly pondering if there's a Jew anywhere in the building. Created by "The Sopranos" alum Matthew Weiner, it's a rare period drama that niftily injects shades of gray into the black-and-white TV era, warts and all...As a serialized drama, the program's situations aren't especially stirring, even with its solid, perfectly outfitted cast. The sheer atmosphere, however, proves intoxicating -- from a doctor puffing away during a gynecological exam to snippets of Bob Newhart's comedy to the backdrop of the pending Nixon-Kennedy race for the White House (Sterling Cooper is weighing whether to represent Nixon), adding a pre-Camelot significance to the proceedings...Despite its understated approach, however, "Mad Men" actually strikes a profound chord, inasmuch part of today's so-called culture war involves sifting through the tumult of the 1960s, heralded by progressives for the freedoms won but now being decried by conservatives for the standards that were eroded.

Quotes
Andrew Johnston, The House Next Door ...in the first episode of his remarkable series, Weiner turns on the gas, lights a match and places his characters on top of a long, slow flame.
Brian Lowry, Variety ...the pleasures of "Mad Men" refreshingly arise almost wholly from small, impeccably detailed touches.
Dan Mancini, DVD Verdict ...breaks new ground while making full use of some of TV's most reliably entertaining plot devices. What more can you ask?
James Plath, DVD Town These ad men may not be as ruthless as "The Sopranos," but the characters are just as complex, and their lives equally fascinating.
Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club ...inhabits a world both seductive and sinister, but what sets it apart is the substance behind the shimmering exteriors.
Sean Axmaker, SeanAx.com ...a richly drawn look at the social roles, sexual identity, and disenchantment with the facade that is the American Dream.
