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.
