REVIEW: MAD MEN
“Mad Men,” one of “TV’s best-ever dramas” (Boston Globe), is back on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with its third and most captivating season! From Matthew Weiner, the EmmyÒ and Golden GlobeÒ 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. Returning for its third season, the show bursts with one scandalous surprise after another. This award winning ensemble continues to captivate us as they contend with a world on the brink. Welcome to “Mad Men” - a shocking portrait of a time that was anything but innocent. Nothing is as sexy. Nothing is as provocative. Nothing is as it seems.
Winner of three Golden GlobesÒ and nine Emmys,Ò including two for Outstanding Drama Series, the acclaim for “Mad Men” has not diminished after three seasons. The San Francisco Chronicle praised “beyond being the finest series on television, 'Mad Men' is both ambitious and exquisite, two of the ultimate rarities in the business,” The Boston Globe proclaimed it “absolutely gorgeous,” The San Jose Mercury News hailed, “TV at its finest,” and the Wall Street Journal exclaimed "The final episode was nothing short of brilliant."
MAD MEN: SEASON THREE contains all 13 episodes of the season, which originally aired in Fall of 2009, and is loaded with special features including extensive commentaries and innovative featurettes that showcase interviews with the cast and crew and examine the historical events that shaped 1963. The Blu-ray Disc also features an interactive look at the inventions, events and people that defined the year while the DVD will be housed in limited edition “lowball glass” packaging. With three new Golden Globe nominations, the third season of “Mad Men” will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on March 23, 2010. The fourth season of “Mad Men” is set to premiere in Summer 2010.
