I'm hooked!

by Dutton Peabody on 9/1/2010

My son bought me season one and hooked me on this series! I love the fact that the show uses actual products, ad campaigns and events from the 60's in the scripts, so not only is the program well acted and entertaining, but it adds a sense of nostalgia for those who lived through that time period. I couldn't stop watching, I finished the whole season in a week! Read More

Product Overview

Set in 1960s New York City, Mad Men explores the glamorous and ego-driven "Golden Age" of advertising, where everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what it seems. And no one plays the game better than Don Draper (Golden Globe-winner Jon Hamm), Madison Avenue's biggest ad man -- and ladies' man -- in the business. Returning for its second season, the Golden Globe-winning series for Best TV Drama and Actor continues to blur the lines between truth and lies, perception and reality. The world of Mad Men is moving in a new direction -- can Sterling Cooper keep up? Meanwhile, the private life of Don Draper becomes complicated in a new way. What is the cost of his secret identity?

This four disc collection includes all 13 episodes from Season Two 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 takes place 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 an upstate suburb. 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 has fully earned its numerous Emmy and Golden-Globe wins for Best Dramatic Series and Best Actor in a Drama. This collection includes all 13 episodes of the series' second season.

Quotes
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.
