Product Description

Amazon.ca

Everything about Mad Men is stylish, even when it's all falling apart. And in season 3 of this Emmy-winning drama, many things fall apart--marriages, childhood, even the ad agency itself--but the unspoolings play out delicately and tragically, making for utterly compelling television. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) appears to dedicate himself to being a devoted family man, with the impending birth of his third child with Betty (January Jones), but the premiere episode, "Out of Town," has him right back to his philandering ways. While the Drapers do enjoy a romantic interlude during a business trip to Italy that makes you wish those darn kids could just work it out, the writing's on the wall that this marriage is sputtering out. Adding to the complication is Betty's discovery of Don's identity-switching past, her own dalliance with a politician, and their oldest child Sally's growing petulance as she observes her world crumbling around her (9-year-old Kiernan Shipka is a revelation). Meanwhile, the Brits infiltrate Sterling Cooper after a merger, leaving Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and Ken (Aaron Staton) competing for the same job; Conrad Hilton (Chelcie Ross) brings in his business and his idiosyncrasies; the closeted Sal (Bryan Batt) nearly gets pushed out of the closet by some compromising situations; Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) asserts herself in the workplace and experiments with loosening her collar (this includes a surprising fling); and Joan (Christina Hendricks, arguably the sexiest woman on television) finally leaves the agency to be a housewife, only to find herself looking for work when her doctor husband comes up short in the promotion department. As usual, the comic relief lies in the reliable hands of the razor-sharp John Slattery as agency partner Roger Sterling, whose marriage to the much-younger former secretary of Don's drives tension between the once-chummy colleagues. At the end of the season, JFK's assassination provides a tragic backdrop for people preoccupied with their own troubles. The top-drawer writing and staging feels very much like a play, especially in the way it merges Don Draper's past with his present. Each episode also includes commentary by creator Matthew Weiner, various writers and directors, and pretty much all cast members (some are entertaining, some pretty superfluous). Also included are featurettes on the history of cigarette advertising and civil-rights documentaries on Medgar Evers and the "I Have a Dream" speech. The latter features, while substantial and well made, feel curiously out of place next to the materialistic and ethically challenged characters on Madison Avenue. Although not as consistent as the first two seasons, Mad Men's third season has enough power to keep it the best series of 2009. --Ellen A. Kim

This is one of those rare dramas that started out great in Season 1 and continues to be of very high quality. Even my husband loves the way they bring in events of the time as the years progress. Great characters, interesting plot lines, and of course the costumes are wonderful. I prefer to watch it on DVD rather than on TV as I will often wish to watch several a week. Mad Men truly stands out in the world of entertainment!

If you're a fan of Mad Men, you're going to love this season as much (or more) than the first 2! And if you're new to the show, although I strongly advise you to watch the first 2 seasons of the show first, you couldn't start watching at a better time. This season is more intense, dramatic, and, for lack of a better word, Mad, than the show has been up until now, and from the looks of things, it's about to get a lot crazier for Don Draper and co. Hands down the best show on television right now.

With season 3 of Mad Men, Matthew Weiner pushes creative boundaries by incorporating elements of film noir, Sirkian melodrama, and even black comedy to the mix. Jon Hamm's acting chops are also pushed to higher levels as Don Draper's positions as powerful ad man and husband are increasingly threatened by the progressive changes of the decade. In sum, it's a profound and character-driven affair that yields new delights with every viewing. And Weiner's commentary tracks are, as usual, top-notch.

While I do admit to preferring season 2's individual storylines over the ones in season 3, it makes no difference in my rating because Mad Men continues to operate on a higher level than everything else that's being produced right now in America, be it TV show or movie.

I was curious about Madmen. It was the talk of the town! And they were right. Madmen is so goooood.It is my "era" as I am 66. The plot is good, the characters and the actors are wonderful, costumes and sets are so real.

I was crossing my fingers for the fith series to come as there were some troubles.

Long live to the Madmen...

Excellent Season...Mad Men is one of the most enjoyable TV shows about the 1960's when men were "superior" and women were "secretaries". I like watching how it was in ann office setting when the ad business was just getting Big..

Perhaps I am biased but I love Mad Men. Every season has been super. The characters are wonderful, the acting superb. Office life in the sixties? Perhaps a little exaggerated in some ways but fairly accurate.

Mad Men is an awesome series and because it is set in the late fifties, early sixties it brings back a lot of memories of simpler times. There are very similar ads for the real products that they mention, that I can remember from my childhood.
