The season's 13 episodes are a perfect suite of politics (Joan vs. the male establishment, the rivalry between Ken and Pete); humor (the firm competes for a Honda account and trips over itself trying to read their Japanese clients); hope (Don and Betty's daughter Sally's cry for help finally falls on receptive ears); and growth (Pete, so weaselly in season one, has become the show's most matured cast member). Each one comes with full commentary by creator Matthew Weiner and various cast and crew members. Also included are documentaries on the historical landscape of the period Mad Men covers: divorce, the Ford Mustang, and the 1964 presidential campaign. All are informative enough, but for a show that's very serious and buttoned up, one can't help but feel a little disappointed there aren't more lighthearted behind-the-scenes extras that could have been included. But perhaps Weiner & Co. feel it's better to keep it all behind the curtain. --Ellen A. Kim

Of course, being Don, he looks good. Hard to believe a man can drink that much and still not show the wages of sin. But as the season progresses, we see him losing his grip more and more, on the business as well as the personal front. He blows up at clients, neglects his children, and uses his women to get what he thinks he wants. At the same time, he is watching himself, from a distance, deconstruct. He starts keeping a journal and swims every day to clear his mind. You keep thinking he's going to get a grip on it. He has to. He's Don Draper.
The supporting staff is suffering too, all the with exception of Peggy, who seems to have really come into her own this season. She is confident, perky, and looks great. She's even dressing the part. Joan Holloway is given more to do this season, thankfully, and her character only gets more intriguing. There's really no telling what Joan can pull off, because no matter what happens to her, she keeps on going.Read more ›
Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm) continues to be the fulcrum for the show; everything pivots around him. However, it is a very rich band of characters indeed who do that pivoting. In season four, everyone is coming into his or her own, whether for good or ill. Draper himself goes through a huge melting down crisis post divorce, flailing around now that what little identity he had seems gone. His entire identity now comes down to his job, which is finding a way to brilliantly project falsity, which is a metaphor for his entire life.
Betty, his ex, is becoming more of what she has been in the prior three seasons. More brittle, more vicious, more intent on achieving her ever elusive goal of perfection.Read more ›
I was very interested to also see how thin things are wearing between Betty and her new husband. Increasingly, he finds her doing one vicious or despicable thing after another. This brittleness in her nature is also becoming more and more apparent in her every scene. I wonder if this guy can survive another five years with her.
I also think Sally is becoming a major character and I can hardly wait until next season to see if I am right. Sally did well in her therapy with the psychiatrist but, predictably, Betty refused treatment for herself when the psychiatrist suggested it. I am just as interested in seeing the fireworks with Sally and Betty next season as I am anything else.
Also, that weasel Roger Sterling has some big surprises coming his way. I see fireworks in his future too.
In conclusion, sigh, I can't believe I have to wait a year for season five!
This show won best Emmy drama in 2010 and nothing else was even close in competition to it.

|What will happen to the cast of Mad men in the future||
If Peggy and Don hook up at any time during the rest of the series, I will take a hammer to all my Mad Men dvds and never watch it again.

|"Any kind of english subtitles?"||
I agree with you. For part 4 I couldn't find any information about subtitles,
and I'm afraid to order this part 4. I love MAD MAN, but I need subtitles.
