Customer Reviews

Overall, I love this series... great script writing, character development and acting.
Mark
The only reason I purchase the DVDs is to hear the commentary--otherwise I can just watch old episodes streaming on Netflix.

The character development continues...as does the social change that provides a beautiful backdrop for the characters lives.

i notice that after 280 reviews that this show has an aggregate rating of three stars. i've read some of the reviews and amazon viewers in general seem to be underwhelmed with the show. i have been reading post episode analyses online plus listening to NPR podcasts about Mad Men. this amazon view is not being repeated there nor do i share it. i like the series as much as i ever did.

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.

Every season, the show starts off like an empty flower bed, takes roots and then blossoms. This season is no different. I think it's funny when people complain that Don Draper has no character growth. He's f'ing Batman. He's Tony Soprano. He is not supposed to change, you are just supposed to understand him better. Hoping for some growth from Joan and Peggy this season though and for Pete to do something beyond lust and jealousy. Mad for Mad Men!

Mad Men has had its good seasons and great seasons (5) .... but I never tire of watching the complexities of the characters being played out over a changing America. Having grown up during this era, I applaud the accuracy of the production. Instead of flashing the year across the screen or something like "6 years later ....", small droplets of newscasts, conversations indicate which year it is. Their comments about the world around them are familiar. Regarding characters: Roger gets better with age, Peggy grows up, Don continues to evolve and Pete realizes that no matter what he does, he can never match Don in deed or misdeed. I'll be sorry to see this series end.

Ever since I started watching Mad Men I have felt the nostalgia of my childhood. The delightful shock seeing the activities that are totally unacceptable now but were part of my everyday life growing up in the 1960s. Pregnant aunts drinking and smoking. Kids like myself bouncing around the backseat of the car seatbelt-less. Eight year olds fetching drinks for adults at neighborhood parties. Grown ups driving drunk. Bosses (Roger) saying all sorts of condescending yet, I must admit, hilarious things to women! All seems so foreign now but so familiar. At once shocking and comforting. I was hooked!
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.

Buyers beware: this season's discs DO NOT include episode commentaries! A couple of lame featurettes not enough to compensate. Very disappointing.

The discs arrived one hour ago. I have watched one episode ("Favors," number 11). Already I have taken the steps to trade the discs back to Amazon, a first, and that's only because I don't believe they would accept an outright return based on the absence of commentaries. However, like others, I am appalled that Lionsgate would do this to the fans after its history of giving us at least one commentary per episode, often more. What on earth is the point of purchasing the DVD if we're going to get no added value? There's no point pretending that extras like the ability to view the apartments and offices could ever make up for not hearing input of the actresses (what did Kiernan think of the episode I watched?), actors (what are James Wolk's insights into Bob Benson?), directors, and tech folks (Janie Bryant, where are you?). Even if the company were to emulate other major shows that offer less commentary, they could have done as was done with most seasons of "West Wing" and offered commentary at least on the pivotal episodes such as "The Doorway," "Favors" and "In Care Of."

Observant users will notice that the five-star ratings at the top of the "most helpful" list all are dated BEFORE the DVD came out and thus are not reviewing the product itself. Whatever you do with this particular review, please up-vote the helpfulness of reviews that warn potential purchasers of the absence of commentary tracks so others won't make the mistake we did ... at least I can be thankful that I always wait for the Black Friday deals before buying my MM discs, as I can only imagine how much more ripped off I'd feel if I had paid the pre-order prices rather than $19.95. Save your money and spend it more wisely, just as I will do with my trade-in card,
