Mad Men is my all-time favorite show from beginning to end. I'm in the midst of rewatching the entire series with my roommate/friend, and somehow it resonates even more the second time through. The vibrant 1960's period detail, the complicated characters, and the heavy emotional depth combine for pure, masterful storytelling!
Maybe it's the ennui engendered by the thought of Mad Men finally going off the air, but this season has a just slightly anemic quality at times. That said, the huge cast of characters continues to surprise with various skirmishes and denouements, and as always the show's production design is a complete knockout. Don may never figure out who he "really" is, and therefore hopes for a catharsis on the part of the show's rabid viewership may be a fool's errand, but watching him attempt to, well, "rebrand" himself still provides one of the most singular experiences in contemporary television. Once again, technical merits are very strong and this Blu-ray release laudably includes the kind of excellent supplements that fans had come to expect after the first few seasons. Highly recommended.
The first time I watched Mad Men, I immediately fell in love with the period references and flashback to those times. The characters have all been slowly and mysteriously developed as the years went on, and I found myself absolutely hooked.
The final season (or the first half) really puts more perspective on the characters and helps to begin closing out the story of Don, Joan, Bert, etc. This is one of my favorite seasons so far, minus the fact that it means the series is ending soon...
Mad Men was a great series that took you through what life was like back in the sixties & seventies era in the corporate world of advertising. Was hooked after watching the 1st episode. Don Draper is a complicated character and you need to pay attention closely to his role in the series. There are other twists & turns that are heart wrenching, liberating & surprising. This DVD is a must have if your a fan & I wish the series wouldn't have come to an end!
Gathered my complete series to send to my aunt and that's when I realized the Mad Men series wasn't complete. I was missing the Finale Season-Part 1. Ordered it, watched it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mad Men......one of the greatest series that I would re-watch several times.
I would recommend this to a friend

A very good ending to a great series of MadMen from the first episode to the last one. I recommend seeing these if you haven't. You will like every one.
When I started watching Mad Men I was surprised that I enjoyed the show as much as I did. I'm in my lower twenties and I believe this shoe is targeting a more mature audience. However, I was captivated from the beginning. Jon Hamm is incredible and the rest of the cast is stellar. I can't wait to see how the story ends. This particular season was excellent and definitely got some momentum going.
