Overview

Mad Men is the groundbreaking series about the glamorous and ego-driven "Golden Age" of advertising, where everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what it seems. In Season 2 (2008), 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 (Jon Hamm) becomes complicated in a new way. What is the cost of his secret identity? This four-disc set contains all 13 episodes of Season 2 and is loaded with special features, including extensive commentaries and innovative featurettes, which reveal a look at the rise of women in the work place, the influence of 1960's fashion, and the historical events that defined the era.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Season 2 of AMC's hit drama about a fictional New York advertising firm, Sterling Cooper, jumps ahead to 1962 with the return of Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), who is now svelte and the subject of rumors about her time away. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) butts heads with new colleague Herman "Duck" Phillips (Mark Moses), who is determined to snag more prestigious clients no matter the cost. Harry (Rich Sommer), with a baby on the way, asks to create a TV advertising division within the agency and surprisingly gets the job. Don steps out with Bobbie Barrett (Melinda McGraw) -- wife of Utz pretzel spokesman and comedian Jimmy Barrett (Patrick Fischler) -- who in turn has quite a few things to say to Don's wife, Betty (January Jones). By midseason, Peggy finally infiltrates the boys-only club of Sterling Cooper and is made a junior account executive; Colin Hanks joins the cast as Father John Gill, the new priest in Peggy's family's parish; and, after Freddy Rumsen (Joel Murray) embarrasses himself and Sterling Cooper for the last time, Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) seizes the opportunity to impress Don and the firm. By the end of the 13-episode season, we get more information about who the real Don Draper is after he takes off for Los Angeles, and Betty stuns Don with an announcement in the season finale.

A friend of mine told me about this show, and from the first episode I was hooked. I bought seasons 1 and 2 and loved both. You easily get sucked into the world of the ad agency elite of the 1960's. I am officially obsessed with Don Draper.

I love Mad Men, its a very well done series. These DVD's include a lot of extra material along with the episodes that make them well worth the price. All the voice-over commentary gives a lot of insight into the production of the show and what the director, producer, or actors think of it. One thing not included is a blooper reel, which is mentioned by some of the commentary that they exist, but not included on the DVD's.

A lot of the latest released products like this are usually really expensive, but I don't have to worry about the price too much anymore! I got mine for free. To get this and a FREE Nintendo Wii, XBox 360, PS3, Wii Fit, iPhone 3Gs, Macbooks, iPods & more, all you need to do is, first of all sign up to the website, http://www.FreeGadgetSite.com, then complete a FREE offer, I'd recommend Intuit (if you're from the USA), or LOVEFiLM (if you're from the UK) which are a 100% free trial, there are other great offers on there too!Then get some friends to do the same! http://www.FreeGadgetSite.com

Loved the first season, and the second was only better!! The final episode of Season 2: Meditations in an Emergency was incredibly well done. I could watch these episodes over and over again. The style, writing, and acting is superb. No wonder it has won so many awards!

The second season of Mad Men gives and even greater insight into the lives of the characters. The precedent set by the first season is certainly maintained if not exceeded. Much like any other television series, I would not recommend watching season two if you haven't seen season one.

I can't say enough good things about this fabulous series. The writing is superb as are the acting and directing. Having lived through the sixties, I can attest that the series is spot on about the zeitgeist of the 60's. The costumes and sets are amazing and the character of Don Draper is brilliant. Don is flawed, yet still good at his core. He is damaged, but with hope of healing. I wish this wonderful series would never end. It is truly the best of television. It appeals to adults of all ages (not for anyone under 18). My twenty something son is a huge fan, too.

The great work done in Year One has been continued in Year Two and this is a very fine series of work. It's hard to believe how much our social mores have changed in 50 years based on what is portrayed on the screen here, but smoking, drinking, office shenanigans and more were all prevalant not that long ago. The series might not be appreciated by all as it moves at a rather lanquid pace but that is it's charm. Well worth the time.

While I'm sure there will be a full series box set eventually, with more features, a real fan won't be able to wait for that. In addition to the expected episodes, there are a few special features, and the packaging is fun and attractive, but the main draw is the episodes, and they're just as good as you'd expect. The personalities in the series have evolved, but the tone and intrigue is still there. The series still focuses on creative director Don Draper, but the supporting characters have added nuance now that we know them a little better. Because of that, their subplots become more interesting as the series goes on.
