Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Matthew Weiner, the Emmy® Award-winning executive producer and writer of The Sopranos, Mad Men is the ground-breaking series about the glamorous and ego-driven "Golden Age" of advertising, where everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what it seems.

The DVD set for Mad Men: Season Two contains all 13 episodes of the second season and is loaded with special features including extensive commentaries and innovative featurettes. The featurettes reveal a look at the rise of women in the work place, the influence of 1960s fashion, and the historical events that defined the era.

Since its debut in the summer of 2007, this pop culture phenomenon has garnered enormous critical acclaim and has won 3 Golden Globes and 6 Emmys. In its second season, Mad Men continues to blur the lines between truth and lies, perception and reality. The world of Mad Men is moving in a new direction — can Sterling Cooper keep up? Meanwhile, the private life of Don Draper becomes complicated in a new way. What is the cost of his secret identity?

Review:

"Far from devolving into soapy Madison Avenue pablum, Mad Men is painstakingly building its way to genuine greatness." The Hollywood Reporter

Review:

"Mad Men returns for Season 2 in excellent form: There's a rich and active subtext in this series, you just have to discover it." Boston Globe

Review:

"The writing is a real thing of beauty — from the aforementioned nuance to searing workplace witticisms and pitch-perfect tone from a multitude of characters." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Terrifically acted and gorgeously produced, this is a show that's both funny and frightening, that can simultaneously make you miss the '60s and feel blessed that they're gone." USA Today

Review:

"The premiere jumps the series from 1960 to 1962, but it plays coy with most of last season's cliff-hangers....It's quite a tease, but the debut proves Mad Men is as smart as ever." Entertainment Weekly

Synopsis:

As changes mount within New York advertising agency Sterling Cooper, brilliant executive Don Draper (Jon Hamm) finds that he must work harder at staying ahead of the competition — which includes the young execs within his own firm who are eyeing his job. This Golden Globe-winning drama centers on Draper's dealings both inside and outside the agency.
