Product Description

All 13 episodes from the sixth season of the Golden Globe-winning drama set in a prestigious advertising agency in 1960s New York, where sexism is a way of life and everyone smokes like a chimney. In this highly competitive, all white, male-dominated environment, the indefatigable Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the top ad executive, but there are plenty of young guns eager to topple him from his perch. In this season, amidst the turmoil of the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, Don proposes that SCDP merge with rivals Cutler Gleason and Chaough in order to win the Chevrolet account. The episodes are: 'The Doorway: Part 1', 'The Doorway: Part 2', 'Collaborators', 'To Have and to Hold', 'The Flood', 'For Immediate Release', 'Man With a Plan', 'The Crash', 'The Better Half', 'A Tale of Two Cities', 'Favors', 'The Quality of Mercy' and 'In Care Of'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 1 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mad Men remains top end drama but there is a very different vibe going on in Series 6. It took several episodes for me to really get into this series but, on reflection, this had much to do with the social/political changes going on in the late 60's and how these are captured. In particular Don and Roger appear increasingly old-fashioned in a world that is changing so quickly.

This isn't the best series but Mad Men remains one of the best programmes. I am looking forward to Series 7 and although disappointed it will be the last, I don't see how it could continue for much longer without losing the edge it has had since it started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madnificent 22 Jun 2013
By Mr. N. J. Todman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
When I watched the first episode of the sixth season of Mad Men I expected it to feel like putting on a comfortable, well-worn, pair of slippers. For years we have gotten to know Don, Pete, Peggy, Betty and numerous other characters as their fortunes, and those of the agency, have ebbed and flowed. But disconcertingly the start of the season time travels forward a couple of years from the end of season 5. As a result everything familiar felt different, and it took several episodes to feel reoriented in the lives of the characters. That was a stroke of genius. Mad Men has always made us work hard for the rewards of feeling immersed in its world.

Once the reorientation process was complete, the series continued with the same sharp writing and flawless acting which have made the previous series such compelling viewing. The introduction of several new characters,the toxic fallout from Don's relationships, and the overhaul of the agency all help to keep the stories fresh and open new windows to the souls of the major protagonists. That said, Don's soul remains a dark and mysterious place. That is why we love him, and this show, so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite TV series. 31 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although Season 6 is not as good as earlier seasons it still excites. Attention to detail as well as the acting is superb. What more can I say? It is the best money I have spent on DVD's. I look forward to Season 7 which I hear sadly is to be the last. If you are into watching post war period films/series then this is a must. I lived and worked through this period in central London and so much of the period is reproduced brilliantly. It's a pity to see so much smoking but that's what so many of us did then. Great entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Authentically Stylish. 8 Dec 2013
By Pigwin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mad Men has all the requisites for a hugely enjoyable TV series and from the first episode of Season one I was engaged. For sheer style Mad Men is hard to beat and the attention to detail with regard to the clothes, hairstyles, etc. of the period, as the series moves from the fifties through the sixties against a backdrop of the main political events of the period, is remarkable. The Mad Men of the title refers to the advertising executives working on Madison Avenue and the principal Mad Man, Don Draper worked as creative director and is now junior partner in the firm Sterling Cooper and Partners. While the series focuses on Don and his life both personal and working, there is a wonderful supporting cast including Roger Sterling, Peggy Olson, Pete Campbell. Joan Holloway and Betty Draper and many other sterling (pun intended) characters.

In season one we learned that Don Draper the successful head of department in Sterling Cooper with the beautiful wife and cute kids, is in reality Jay Gatsby. In effect, Don built his successful career and glamourous lifestyle through personal effort and achievement. He came from a humble and troubled background and even though he has achieved so much he comes across as unsettled and dissatisfied with life.

Over the course of the following seasons we witness the confident serial philanderer begin to lose everything he has worked so hard to build and we are reminded of the opening credits where the man in free fall surely symbolizes Don's steady yet long and slow fall from grace.

Season Six sees Don and his co-stars living through the turbulent events of 1968, a very important year in American politics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable watch 24 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
While nothing will ever replace the glee I felt upon discovering this programme and then binge-watching the first 4 seasons in their entirety, I have to say I was so pleased that Series 6 resumed much of what I liked about the first 4, but that had been lacking in S5.

By now, we know the characters and their foibles inside and out, so we're not surprised by Don's continued drunken-ness, Peggy's desire to be heard and seen as in control, and Roger's inner angst behind his cocksure exterior. Yet we learn more about Don's childhood *Spoiler* being raised in a whore-house and thus his oversexualised childhood - we see him molested by a resident, and this gives us a clue as to why he is as oversexualised as an adult, and why he constantly feels the need to numb himself with booze, cigarettes, extra-marital affairs, and power-playing with his peers. Whereas Roger takes the healthy route of lying on his shrink's sofa and talking through his issues, Don remains the strong silent type, afraid or unable to articulate his emotions, or even to confide in his wife. He doesn't even utter a word for the first 20 minutes of the first episode, leaving us to wonder whether he'll bother to talk at all... In fact, he does, but only when approached at a Honolulu bar by a drunken soldier who he immediately feels a connection to. it's like he's worked so hard to build this life for himself, he has all the trappings of what one would believe would make one happy - powerful job where he actually gets to be creative, beautiful wife, money and children, yet this isn't enough for him to be happy. His childhood deamons are still gnawing at him and continue to do so throughout the series.
