How this doesn't have a topic is beyond me. I searched several different ways in disbelief that it didn't exist.

For those unfamiliar, Mad Men is a show produced by The Soprano's Matthew Wiener, and is shown on AMC. Season 4 is out on DVD and Season 5 is on hold due to problems with the network.

Apparently AMC wants to cut away 2 minutes from the show to add commercials and Matthew says "No way." So now we are on pause.

I own every season on DVD and I cannot believe how into the show I am. I love it so much.


The show is set in the 60's and revolves around the character Don Draper (Jonatham Hamm) an Ad Agency's Creative Director who gets more pussy and commands more respect than every James Bond adventure put together, Peggy Olson (Elizabeth Moss) a secretary who isn't cute enough to find a man so she becomes one by fighting her way up the company ladder, Betty Draper (January motherf*cking Jones) Don's wife who is completely clueless to his lifestyle, Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) the lead secretary who's power in the office stumbles her social life but attracts the big wigs, Roger Sterling (John Slattery) a hilarious company partner with white hair who never grew up, and Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) a suck up who is just annoying enough to hate but successful enough to keep around.


It isn't nearly violent or action filled enough to please most guys, but the show is so ridiculously true to the time, down to the ice cubes, that it takes you to another dimension and you get lost in it in a totally different way than you would with any other show.

You either love this show or hate it. If you hate it, I'm used to that. I don't know ANYONE besides my Mother who likes it.

If you love it, post here.

Easily one of my favourite shows - I'm so glad that it's still going on for now. Perfectly recreates the world it's going for, and it's enticing from the first moment that you hear Don pitching in the pilot. All the characters are identifiable for the most part - even my least favourite character, Peggy has had some great moments. If someone is a big fan of television and period pieces and they haven't watched this then there will be some serious faces next time they come around the office.

They resolved all that, I think it basically involved giving Matthew more money...they are definitely filming now, they released a picture a couple weeks ago of Jon Hamm directing the next season's opener.

Peggy is your least favorite? I mean, sure, they go a bit heavy on the "I am woman, hear me roar" schtick at times, but I really think she's one of the stand-out characters on the show.

I don't really 'love' the show, so take that any way you want.

Love it. Just finished Season 4 a week ago.

My favorite scene in probably the whole series is probably Don's flashback as a soldier in Season 1. That was the scene that really got me interested in watching this show.

I finally decided to start watching it about a month ago. I have no idea why I didn't start sooner but i'm glad I did. Easily one of my favorite shows ever.

Is there ever one time that Don's love life is ever stable?

Love it. Favorite show on television right now. I mean, there are plenty of great shows on right now that I've watched and others I haven't, but Mad Men sets bar for characters and story, I believe.

Anyways, I bought the first three seasons on Blu Ray back when Amazon went crazy and sold them for 9 bucks a piece. So sweet. Waiting to pick up the fourth to put in my collection. Not say I haven't seen it though.

I agree with the sentiment of wondering if Don is actually at a happy place. It shall be interesting as to where they take the show and how long of a time gap takes place.

Finally, how many caught the original premiere? I remember recording it on my friends DVR while watching it, but there is one interesting thing: Mad Men used Amy Winehouse's Back to Black for that first episode. It has never appeared on the show again.

Love the show. I just started season 3 on Netflix and am enjoying every minute of it.

This show is essentially a well-done, non-cheesy soap opera. And I'm completely okay with that.

Because topics for TV shows are littered with both intentional and hidden spoilers. That's why I don't go in them.

But yeah, about half way through season 3 and took a bit of a break to catch up on other shows. Will blast through 3 and 4 before 5 hits our screens next year.

I just finished season 4 on Netflix. Are you f*cking kidding me? How could Don marry her? HER! Not the super caring, beautiful, successful, blonde Faye? I really hope this doesn't last.

I hope Betty Francis/Draper/whoever jumps off a cliff next season, the show would then be perfect. Dons new marriage isn't going to last, or it'll be perfect.

One of my favorite shows! I get lost in the immersion of the time period. They do such a stellar job with the detail of every single scene- a painstaking recreation of early 1960s America.

I also have a gigantic boner for Christina Hendricks and the show affords me an opportunity to stare at her endlessly. I would rape her till the room stinks.

I can't agree with this more. She's absolutely stunning.

I also really like Alison Brie who plays Trudy Campbell, and is also in Community. She's sexy.

I was pretty surprised to find out that Netflix is carrying all four seasons of Mad Men, and I'm about halfway through season two at the moment. It's a really damn good show, in fact I'm wondering why I haven't seen it up until just recently. Luckily it's one of the few shows that I've caught that's still in production, so at least I can look forward to the next season once I'm finished catching up.

Also, Christina Hendricks' boobs.

Here she is in season 4: http://imgur.com/bhhVu


Also, yeah, Alison Brie is noice. Downloaded Community not too long ago so I'll see how I like that.

Mmm hotness. Great rack, full lips, pretty face, porcelain skin. She's a babe.

Holy f*cking sh*tballs I knew I recognised her, but I was never able to place it. How did that evade me for 3 seasons? (I'm only up to the end of season three, got 'em on boxset a while back and only just got around to finishing what I've got).
