Prefatory comment: I am thoroughly familiar with the first three seasons of Mad Men, but have not yet seen any episodes of season 4. As I said in my message on the main page of this group, I don't…Continue

I've been watching via DVD. Love the show...up until this final first half of the season. Not quite sure where the writers are planning on taking us, but these last few episodes have been more weird than anything.

Absolutely.  Plus, now she has something she can hold over his head, so she has power over him.  I'm sure as she gets older she'll figure out ways to use it.

Well she sure has the power to do that now.  Its kind of  a mirror image of Don/Dick at about the same age looking through the hole in the wall and seeing his foster/adoptive mother acceeding to the demands of the owner of the brothel they went to live in.

Love this show. Also, Banana Republic has come out with a Mad Men line of clothing for spring based on the clothes featured on the show...of course to really buy the clothes on the show you'd have to shop at brook's brothers

Great show. Why more here are not into it is beyond me too. We don't have cable either, we buy them on Itunes, and they are worth every penny.

I'm surprised that this group has not attracted more attention on this site. It seems to me that the show Mad Men continually raises questions of which conceptions of the obligations and prerogatives of a man are defensible and which ones ones merely parochial.

 

I just started watching the show last year. I don't get cable television networks, so I have only been able to watch it on DVD. I have seen the first three seasons, every episode at least twice, so I know that much of the show pretty well, but I have not yet seen any episode of season 4, the most recent one. Right now I am making my way through my DVDs again--I am now near the end of season 2--in preparation for the release of the DVD set of season 4 next month (according to Amazon.com).
