take a look at the poster shown on this page for the show. that is don draper both coming and going. look at the signs around him and the disjointedness of the art work. it is not an uplifting poster! this season opens at the end of 1967 and then jumps right into 1968 and the country as a whole is coming apart, just like the poster. so it is not just don draper's world which is being torn.
at the end of last season, much was made of the woman coming up to don and asking him "are you alone?". much has been written about whether that meant don was going to return to being a philanderer. i looked at the question in its larger sense. is this man alone inside of himself, forever isolated from really connecting with anyone? to me the answer is obvious. he is the probably the most alone man one could ever encounter. and this time period leads into an era of alienation for the american population unlike any it had known before. parents are about to be alienated from their children as they never have been before, just as one gigantic shift. so, as usual, don is ahead of the times.
as for the other characters, fascinating things are going on for them as well. we can see that women who want to get out of the straight jacketed post war existence finally have a glimmer of hope for doing so. peggy and joan are far from being as miserable as the men around them.Read more ›
This season corresponds with the beginning of my adolescent years. Late 60's early 70's. I remember this time from a perspective changed from that of a child to that of a young teen. This season is presented from the same changed perspective. Change for women, change for male/female relationships, more drug experimentation etc. These themes parallel my personal experience of going from the innocent viewpoint of an observant child to that of an more cognoscente adolescent; from vaguely sensing the hidden drama behind the benign outside presentation of adults in the early 60s to witnessing and sometimes experiencing the awakening of the late 60s and early 70s. As a young adolescent I became aware of the realities of war, sex, woman's new freedoms, and drug experimentation. So personal nostalgia is the main reason I crave the show.Read more ›
I would recommend not buying and waiting to see if they provide a disc set with commentary later on. Perhaps if Lionsgate or AMC loses enough money on the discs they will get the message that this wasn't a cost effective move! I'm giving one star not because I hate Mad Men (it was a superb season) but to send a message: lack of commentary and, especially, lack of notice there is no commentary is unacceptable. I already have the episodes saved on my DVR. I could have saved $35.99 and now, because I preordered in August, I cannot return my purchase. Boo!
