Having said that, the package itself is relatively affordable (well, for the Amazon price...), considering you're getting 7 seasons of material, and this is the only collection to include commentary tracks for season 6. The souvenir coasters are ... a thing? Honestly, I'd have preferred less baubles and a lower price tag, but if any show in recent memory deserves the treatment, it'd be this one.
Secondly, the packaging of the box itself is poorly considered. It's obvious they threw on some pictures from the final season on the box and called it a day. No pictures of Sal or Lane for example. If someone is viewing the series for the first time, it would be a fairly obvious spoiler if they examined the box and couldn't find those characters. Plus the inside of the box is just a mess - the book of discs is nice (aside from the inability to get the discs out) but they just threw in a box with some glasses from the set (which are nice) and some cheap cardboard coasters that are similar in quality to what you would get at your average bar.
I can't help but compare the horrible design of this disc collection to that of Breaking Bad, which was very cleverly and thoughtfully designed. I understand that Matt Weiner was a stickler for detail on the set of Mad Men. Too bad he wasn't such a stickler when it came to offering a product for the show's fans.
You can see for yourself the glass and the mysterious crack.
That said, all the comments about the packaging being very difficult to work with are vast understatements. The boxed set looks beautiful, and obviously a lot of thought was given to the "look" of the set...but its EXTREMELY difficult to get the discs out of their sleeves without damaging something. VERY POOR SLEEVE DESIGN. I have had to resort to tearing the sleeves to get the discs out safely, otherwise you run the risk of damaging the discs themselves when you remove them. That is why I give the review 4 stars.
