    mad men the final season part 1 is a three disc dvd set that features gay rights, gay power, the trial of Chicago, and the best things in life are free. Disc one has a picture of the don draper (jon hamm) character, while the other two discs have visuals of don draper’s current wife megan draper (Jessica pare) and peggy olson (Elisabeth moss). However, I did notice that there was a picture of the betty francis character once I placed the first dvd in the divd player. The characters of betty francis (January jones), joan harris (Christina Hendricks), pete Campbell (Vincent cartheiser), sally draper (Kiernan shipka), bert copper (Robert morse), roger sterling (john slattery) along with other actors/actresses return to the show. One thing that I do like about the show is that the writing was done in a way to show the reality of what the characters were dealing with during the time period that the series is set in while trying to think outside of the box in how to treat their employees with respect and dignity. For instance, there is a scene where Don Draper is speaking to one of his female employees at his home regarding work related concerns and he insists on compensating her despite her reluctance to ask. There is then the character of joan harris who is called to deal with how to treat one of her employees with dignity when she is asked by bert cooper to move the employee to a less controversial spot. Joan harris is shown being naturally uncertain as to the best way to deal with the situation at first while taking care to treat the employee affected with dignity. The trailers that accompany this dvd set are for the following shoes; orange is the new black, weeds, Hannibal season 2, nurse Jackie, anger management, Houdini, manhattan, and epixdotcom. I plan to eventually purchase the boxed set version containing all of the mad men season series.

    MAD FOR MAD MEN

    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 final season edition in this series captures the feels and the personal journey of one lost man, to the end of the 60's decade. It concludes his story, one of a success full man, who still seems to be looking for his identity, but not finding any peace and fulfillment amongst all his success. it concludes his destructive personal story, and the story of the people that he encounters along the 60's long decade, as he turns toward a more spiritual personal journey and uses it to further his professional success.

    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!

    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.

    I have no idea how we missed this during its original run. But we enjoyed the entire series on DVD. Had to wait a few extra days for these last episodes since this set was not readily available at our local Best Buy. We settled in and watched this set as the series came to a satisfying conclusion.

    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! Megan who is a store representative at the Eau Claire location continues to impress me with her passion for service, and enthusiasm when assisting me, and other customers. She is nothing short of a professional knockout! Best Buy's Wonder Woman.
