Reviews

Critically hailed as the ‘planet’s coolest TV drama’ (The Times), BAFTA-winning Mad Men is a darkly humourous look at the incredible advertising minds dictating the American Dream in the late 50s and early 60s. Hard drinking, chain smoking, oversexed and misogynistic, the Madison Avenue pioneers sell an ideal they are struggling to achieve in their own lives.

Mad Men is a sexy, stylish and shocking portrait of a time that was anything but innocent. Nothing is as sexy. Nothing is as provocative. Nothing is as it seems.

Winner of an incredible nine Emmys®, four Golden Globes® and a BAFTA, Mad Men is the groundbreaking series that critics are calling one of TV’s best ever dramas.

Contains all 39 episodes of three award-winning seasons.

I admit to being a Mad Men obsessive. I'm not alone - there is a fantastic blog on the Guardian website (recently collected into a book The Ultimate Guide to Mad Men: The Guardian companion to the slickest show on television) if you're only now catching up on this series.

I watched every episode from the beginning, then I got this DVD set so I could watch them all again. The first three series are superb but Series 4, which is currently screening on BBC4, has taken it all to a new level - things which we found out in earlier seasons are coming to fruition. Those of us who have invested in watching every episode are getting the payoff now. So, I highly recommend this set for an intensive catch-up if you're joining the game late, or need to brush up your memory.

I am in awe of Mathew Weiner, who was also a writer on The Sopranos. It shows. In Mad Men he demonstrates the same ability to create a fully realised world with complex characters and sets it firmly in the time and place of early sixties Manhatten. The changing role of women, civil rights, the rise of consumerism are all explored through following Sterling Cooper's fortunes and those of the families who are tied up with them. The attention to detail is astounding; the clothes, the sets, the language are spot on.

It's hard not to fall in love with this series; great writing, directing and acting coming together in a flawless and totally gripping drama. It's great on the business workplace, which is so rare in any genre, and the characters are both complex and consistent. They surprise you, but their actions come from their character flaws and strengths rather than an imposed plot twist.

A friend loaned us the first season of Mad Men because we had never heard of it other than to see them winning awards for best drama in the States. Now we know why; this is an amazingly intelligent and meticulously detailed window on this era in the USA. The characters are all so interesting as we see them interact with each other and the producers have been so careful to recreate the physical and social environment - right down to the food packaging. It is so interesting to observe how attitudes have changed and the attention to detail in terms of wardrobe and culture is truly commendable. The cast are terrific and that's all you need to know - don't miss this chance to travel in time.

Mad Men 1-3 dramatizes suburban American life in the late 1950's to the early 60s, with the fine ear and eye of a first class writer and painter. If you like American short stories, such as those of John Cheever, or the films of directors like Douglas Sirk you would probably enjoy the Mad Men series.

The characters are carefully drawn and involving, the dialogue is smart, the situations dramatized of work and family life are likely to strike a chord. The issues of racial and sexual equality, health, lifestyle, culture and politics are woven into interesting and believable human stories. The acting, set designs, costumes are also part of the pleasure. In an early review of Mad Men I suggested it was a show suitable for those of a certain sophistication and for others there was 'Lost'. A somewhat snobbish view I accept, but I would stick to it, nonetheless.

Finally, this is a terrific show to buy in blu-ray. I have watched all 3 series on BBC, but not bought the dvd. For people who haven't seen the show or don't possess the dvd this seems to me an excellent opportunity to get the blu-ray version. I am not sure I can count on anyone to give it to me, so it will have to be a gift to myself. I will watch the shows again with my wife, who has belatedly also started to appreciate them, and a bottle or two of Bodegas Zapata Catena Alta Malbec.

Enjoy!

Mad Men is quite simply, the best written drama on television. Poignant, witty, charming and exceptionally well styled, it beautifully captures a fascinating time in American history when men were men and women were...well...oppressed. As someone with a long standing interest in American history, the detail that this stunning show goes into is really quite outstanding. From just 30 seconds of a song or a Beatles ticket landing on a desk, Mad Men manages to capture the feelings and moods of a nation. However you must be careful as this show is addictive. You won't sleep or leave the house until you finish it and this is why buying a box set is dangerous. You may also take up smoking again and drink far too much whiskey. If you are prepared for this however, Mad Men will charm you more than Don Draper and a martini.

One of the most flawless, sophisticated and intelligent pieces of television in a very long time. Not only is it superbly written and acted, it is sumptuous to look at too. It's worth watching just for the authentic detail paid to sets and wardrobe alone. WATCH IT!

So many friends kept harping on about Mad Men that in the end I had to buy the box set.

I'm so glad I did. What a brilliant show. The only problem was that my husband and I ended up going to bed very late on numerous occasions as we had to watch "just one more episode."

It is a glimpse of life in another era and boy can they drink and smoke! The plots are great and the characters are believable. I'm going to buy series 4 as soon as I've caught up on my sleep.
