Format: DVD
The third installment in the Mad Man fanchise has not lost any of the sparkle of the first two seasons. The show still does a splendid job of portraying the world of a 1960s Madison Avenue ad agency and the 60s American life more broadly, this time under the new British ownership, with all the strugles that entails.

It is incredibly well researched, with faultless attention to detail and is great at capturing the subtleties of life and work almost 50 years ago.

Don Draper's character perhaps does not develop as much as in the earlier seasons, although more of his past is revealed. The Stepford wives' veneer is starting to crack with some of the spouses and the change of characters is natural and rather better suited to the more realistic pace it could actually take in real life - something that might be somewhat frustrating in the 'immediate gratification' world of today.

The big historical event that is woven into the story is the assasination of JFK. The reaction of the nation is shocking to observe for someone, who was born decades later - in some ways it really seems those were more innocent times.

The ratio between life in the office, at home and in 'extra-curricular activities' is aptly chosen and issues are given adequate time and attention, so as not to fall flat but to be sufficiently multidimensional to actually contribute to the story.

The professional aspect of work in an ad agency is interesting for two reasons - for how the realtionships have changed seismically in some aspects and how in others, shockingly litte progress has been made in the dvertising field for over 4 decades.

Mad Men continues to be excellent drama. For fans, series 3 will be must-watch TV. Those who find the series somewhat static would not see anything here to change their mind. Although the series does build up to a very dramatic final couple of episodes interwoven with the Kennedy assassination. Stuff happens, the writers just take time to make their dramatic point. No different to the Sopranos really.

Don and Betty dominate the story lines. I must say, though, I increasingly liked the story threads that came out of the other characters. I perk up when Pete, Peggy, Sal and Roger are on screen. Jon Hamm's anxious, slightly constipated expression can be a bit wearing, though friends continue to insist on his handsomeness.

Series 3 has some good fun with the Brits, coming to spoil the July 4th celebrations. The British agency is called Putnam, Powell and Lowe. (David Puttnam, of course, a Brit - from an advertising background - who took over an American film studio, with not very good results). Although some of the Brit characters are fairly ghastly, one can't say they are more so than the Americans. Treatment is fair and often funny.

Race relations is a recurring theme in this series, My Kentucky Home a standout episode. (Wish I could dance like Vincent Kartheiser.) Pete's suggestion of integrated advertising also a great scene. Mad Men buzzes when this character is in motion. Don, of course, doesn't like to dance.

There is also plenty of screen time for the drama of Don, Betty and family - young and old. Less interesting to me, although the young actress playing the daughter does a great job.

The pleasure remains in the details - the supporting cast, the natty 60s clothes, the colours of the sets and, of course, the excellent script.

Thank goodness the sun has decided to pay this country a call because I think, without it, I (along with many others, I'm sure!) would have gone into a steady decline with the final eposode of the third series of Man Men having aired on Wednesday evening.
TV viewing will be so much poorer for its finish.

In many ways, this third series has taken more time to get moving and I do agree with other reviewers that its a shame that most of the story lines have revolved around Don & Bettys' seemingly doomed marriage. However, I think to do this sub-plot justice, time had to be spent. And well spent it was indeed, delving deeper into Don's past helps us understand so much more clearly the man behind the persona.

Interestingly, whilst having more sympathy with Betty as the betrayed wife, at the start of season one, throughout this latest series, I have found her to be increasingly irritating. So much so in fact that when her determination to 'open the locked drawer' eventually pays off and she confronts Don with the evidence of his past, every bit of support I ever felt for her left instantly and my heart literally ached for Don's character.
A truly superb piece of acting by Jon Hamm in this scene.

Overall, viewed as a total series, I now believe season three to be more superior to both seasons one and two. However, I also hope that with season four (which the lucky US will start viewing shortly), Matthew Weiner does focus more on the other characters ~ they are all such interesting but so intrincially flawed in their own individual ways ... as are we all I guess!

Again, to reiterate other reviewers, this DVD cannot be viewed as a 'stand alone' as without having seen seasons one & two, it will make little sense.
However, viewed in its entirety, it is, in my personal opinion, without doubt quite the finest piece of television you could ever wish to see.
