The debut season of Matthew Weiner's intense and stylish drama follows the lives of Madison Avenue advertising executives (so-called "Mad Men") in 1960. The series centers on Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the dashing and brilliant creative director for ad agency Sterling Cooper (Season 1 accounts include Richard Nixon's presidential campaign and, appropriately, Lucky Strike, given the cigarettes are smoked in nearly every scene). Don's charms extend well outside of the boardroom and into the bedroom: The married man has a free-spirited lover, Midge Daniels (Rosemarie DeWitt), who's his polar opposite, and a second mistress, Rachel Menken (Maggie Siff), a client whose independence challenges Don's views on women. Don's wife, Betty (January Jones), meanwhile, dutifully fulfills her role as housewife. But when she develops a mysterious ailment that causes her to lose feeling in her hands, she's sent to a psychiatrist to work through her problems. Over at Sterling Cooper, new secretary Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) tries to adjust to life in the boys club with guidance from seen-it-all bombshell secretary Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks). Young account exec Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) also has his eyes on Peggy and quickly begins pursuing her, despite his upcoming nuptials. There's even more bad behavior at the office from skirt chasers Ken Cosgrove (Aaron Staton) and Paul Kinsey (Michael Gladis), loving but imperfect Harry Crane (Rich Sommer) and stuck-in-the-closet art director Sal Romano (Bryan Batt). Partner Roger Sterling (John Slattery) does little to set an example for his employees as he happily indulges in an array of vices and an affair with Joan. Senior partner Bertram Cooper (Robert Morse) is mostly out of touch with the staff, preferring to remain within the sanctuary of his giant office. In the midst of this workplace frivolity, Don learns that the picture-perfect life he's created for himself could be threatened by a secret from his past. ~ Brie Hearn
Mad about Mad Men
Posted by: DGirl from: Beverly Hills, CA on
I saw the first episode of Mad Men when it originally aired and wasn't that impressed. It looked pretty and had a decent cast but it just felt a little flat. I kept hearing good things about the show, though, and finally decided to give it another shot. I just finished watching season one and am now a huge fan. This show is unique and has incredible, layered characters that grow on you each episode.
I do still think that the first few episodes move a little slowly but it's worth hanging in there. The story pace quickly picks up and you will soon find yourself deeply in love with these Mad Men and the equally Mad Women who are their counterparts. Now I can't wait for the second season!

Another Great AMC series
Posted by: hroeder from: Fort Thomas, KY on
This is from the AMC series. AMC has joined the weekly television scrap with a couple of very strong series now. This one focuses on the Advertising executives from Madison Avenue during 1960.
If you weren't alive when Kennedy was running for President, you might find some of this anachronistic. People smoking like chimneys. People drinking and driving without any thought. Affairs run amok. The first two surely happened. Whether the third happened as often on Madison Avenue as this depicts, I guess you'd have to talk to an Ad Man. Of course it does make for a spicier TV show.
Well acted. Well Written. Well worth the dramatic, and sometimes comic result. And certainly a wonderful history lesson. Though there are some anomalies that pop up from time to time. Us old foggies sit back and say that didn't exist then.

I didn't expect much from the show, but it does after all have my uncle in it, so I gave it a shot. It turned out that this is one of my favorite shows on TV right now. I can"t wait for season two, which starts on July 27!

Great show to get into
Posted by: Manny12039 from: Idaho on
I've read a lot of great things about the show so I thought I would give it a try. Bought all first 3 seasons at a great price! The first season was very entertaining, probably not as dramatic as your typical teenage vampire drama or HBO series shows, but it was very historically correct which I loved about it. Very dry on the humor side but still caught my attention, definitely worth a buy when you spot it on sale as I did.

Believe the hype!
Posted by: Gean from: Los Angeles, CA on
After hearing all about Mad Men the past few years, I finally decided to buy all three seasons (during Black Friday 2010 at 9.99 each for blu-rays). Finally got around to watching the first season and wow, it's worth it. There were times I was watching 2-3 episodes a night. It's that good. Highly recommend it. It's pretty interesting to see a period piece, and see how things were so different 50 years ago in America. I'm going to try and finish seasons 2 and 3 before they start airing season 4 on tv. Otherwise...might just have buy season 4!

Excellent Show and amazing actors
Posted by: mdogg21k7 from: on
Mad Men is an excellent show with truly amazing actors. It is a period piece set in the 1960s. The actors, writers, directors and the set designers do an amazing job of selling 1960s New York ad men

Excellent box set for the Mad Men fan
Posted by: Mattszenith from: on
I don't buy TV series box sets, however Mad Men is the lone exception. This is one of the best shows to have been on TV in a long time. Fortunately my decision to purchase Season One on Blu-ray was an easy one because of Best Buy's competitive pricing. The box set has a wonderful design and layout. The Mad Men Season 1 Blu-Ray box set is definitely a worthwhile purchase.
