MAD MEN Seasons 1-4 DVD

Thursday, June 28, 2012

This is quite simply, in my humble opinion, one of the finest tv series that has ever been broadcast.  It has been worth all the hype surrounding the recent airing of season 5 on AMC.  Howell Carnegie Library owns the first four seasons, so I decided to catch up and watched a marathon of episodes (52!) over a period of about two months.  It was fabulous- the costumes, the sets, the cars, the attention to even the smallest detail.  You are transported back to the 1960's.  More importantly, though, the story itself and the superb actors portraying the characters are so superior to most other tv dramas.  You really care about these characters.  The writers have done an incredible job of putting this group of people at the fictional advertising agency Sterling Cooper and immersing them in the social upheaval of the '60's.  I cannot recommend this series highly enough.   Check our catalog      Pat
