Mad Men

Season One

One of the finest hours of television drama in recent memory, Mad Men is deliciously layered and smartly rendered from the smallest details of costume design to the playing out of the big, tumultuous cultural and gender politics of the early 1960s. It’s been awarded with Golden Globes and Emmys galore and with good reason. Programs with this level of complexity are rare on the small screen (the large one as well for that matter). Tucked into a replica Zippo lighter style case, these 13 episodes on four discs make for great repeat viewing for anyone appreciating rich drama.
