Where the Truth Lies.
|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!
"...breaks new ground while making full use of some of TV's most reliably entertaining plot devices. What more can you ask? Dan Mancini, DVD Verdict
"These ad men may not be as ruthless as "The Sopranos," but the characters are just as complex, and their lives equally fascinating. James Plath, DVD Town
"...inhabits a world both seductive and sinister, but what sets it apart is the substance behind the shimmering exteriors. Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club
"...a richly drawn look at the social roles, sexual identity, and disenchantment with the facade that is the American Dream. Sean Axmaker, SeanAx.com
Editor's NoteMatthew 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.

|We live in a digital age where every movie, television show, book, and video game are hyped up as much as possible. We’re bombarded with ads and praise for things that rarely deserve it. Hype’s a double-edged sword -- everyone wants their product to be known but too much hype can lead to higher expectations than the property can deliver on. AMC’s original show Mad Men has received such high acclaim and is one of the rare shows to truly earn it. But what is it about this show that draws in audiences and earns heaps of Emmy nominations? What is it exactly that makes this show tick?...read the full review|
