Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While this wasn't my favorite season, it's still an easy five stars since it's in the top 3 of best shows currently on television. I know there have been a lot negative reactions towards this season, and I think maybe it's for a few reasons. Lots of people despise Megan. And others say that "nothing really happened". I don't really like Megan either, but I've come to accept her character. She is SUPPOSED to be annoying (or at least can easily be interpreted as so). We don't have to like her. As far as nothing happening, plenty of things happened, although I admit it was a little slow-paced, but I think it's building up for better seasons to come.

This season takes place between Memorial Day 1966 and Spring 1967. The season focuses on Don Draper and Megan's relationship and how distracting it is from his job, and most of the main characters are facing painful new beginnings and realize it's a "dog-eat-dog" world. The season starts out light (probably because of how dark season 4 was), but by the end of the season things are gloomier than ever. So never fear, Mad Men isn't going soft.

Don - one reason I enjoyed season 4 so much is that we had a break from Don being in a dramatic, serious relationship. He was just casually dating and we were able to see more of SCDP. Now he's married to Megan, and that opens up a lot more storylines. You'll either love or hate Megan. She shows signs of being very independent and mature, but then will surprise you by suddenly doing something very stupid and childish. The big question is: how long is it until Don cheats on her? I don't believe that Don will be in a monogamous relationship for the rest of his life. It's also interesting how it's reminiscent of the beginning of his relationship with Betty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best season since Season 1 and that is saying a lot April 29, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I looked at a couple of the negative reviews and found them to be bizarre. This is very thoughtful and well-written show that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of what is currently out there. A couple of people seem to be fixated on the Betty episode which I would agree was the weakest of the first six that I have seen but that is only relative. The other episodes have been among the best of the series with the the further fleshing out and development of the older characters going hand in hand with surprisingly strong and complex new(er) characters such as Megan and Ginsberg, not to mention Mrs. Francis (Henry's mother). I just think that this show continues to be a wonderful window into upheaval of the 1960s that still affects to this day. The early comments do not reflect the high quality of the fifth season at all and are misleading. Update: I just completed watching Episodes 7-11 and found two of the very best episodes ever produced including The Other Woman which really exposes the seamy underbelly of the "getting ahead at all costs" nature of the world of advertising and of the corporate mindset in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise Lost and Innocence Corrupted May 28, 2012
A lot is happening in this episode of Mad Men, all of it heartbreaking and it all makes for one of the best episodes of the season. The race to get the Jaguar account is still on and difficulties abound. The Jaguar continues to be an expensive and unreliable car and the agency hopes to compare it to a mistress, but needs the slogan - a slogan that Don is having trouble creating. One of the Jaguar executives wants Joan's company for an evening, and not as Pete puts it for dinner and dancing. It is right that Pete should define the terms as he is the weasel who pimps and pitches the propisition to Joan. The rest of the men are aghast and don't want Joan to do it but Pete is convinced that this is the only way they will get the account - even if Don comes through with his ususal brilliance. In his stress, Don is lashing out at both Peggy and Megan and Peggy is considering pursuing another opportunity. Megan is hoping she gets a part with an out of town try out.

The episode highlights the differences for women and working women in particular without preaching or being heavy-handed. All of the female characters are asked to prostitute themselves in some way, either literal or metaphoric and their femininity is still their defining characteristic to the men in their world, despite what they do and how they function. Don is surprisingly moral and Pete unsurprisingly adds pander to his many slimey accomplishments. Lane is pragmatic and fond of Joan and advises that if forced to sell oneself to get the best possible price and to get it up front. Roger and Cooper are as ineffectual as ever. The editing of Don's pitch and Joan's decision about what to do is a brilliant bit of filming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ships that Pass in the Night May 21, 2012
Mad Men is one of the best shows in the medium for conveying unspoken emotion, in the acting, the writing, the tone, the music and the setting. Things that people are feeling and thinking but not actually saying are conveyed just as strongly as those that are spoken.

A lot happens in this episode. Lane is in trouble with the In Land Revenue in England and is fiddling the company books (no doubt momentarily) and robbing Peter to pay Paul to take care of it. This is an obvious set-up for a longer arc, but of all the things that happened in this episode, this was my least favorite. I like Lane and I believe he would act more honorably from what we have seen thus far. Pete continues to chase the Jaguar account, but as everyone knows, Jaguars were temperamental cars until Ford took them over, decades later. Late sixties flavor is mixed in with a throw-away sub-plot involving the Hari Krishnas.

Don's resentment of Megan's decision to leave advertising continues to simmer and burn, though Megan largely ignores it, and Joan's estranged husband moves to make the estrangement permanent, which leads to the most powerful scene of the episode and possibly one of the most powerful of the series. Joan throws a temper tantrum in the outer office after being served and Don rescues her and takes her out. Viewers have always wanted to see Don and Joan interact more - not only are they the two most beautiful people on the show, they seem to be eerie mirror images of each other, a fact that is beautifully conveyed in the scene that follows. Joan and Don sit drinking in a mid-town bar, cynically surveying the talent. They are both scarred veterans of the battle between the sexes. They have both sought love and they have both manipulated to take the best on offer when love wasn't available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad for Mad Men
One of my favorite things about Mad Men is being totally immersed in the 60's culture--love the clothes, the sets, the hair...and the story line keeps me guessing, too.

Why is anyone able to rate this season when it has only just begun airing?
I agree and have complained about this before. Reviews are supposed to be of the product which includes not only the full season's episodes but the discs themselves. How can you review a product that not only hasn't been released yet or even fully aired, it probably hasn't even been made yet... Read more
