Mad Men: Season 4 On Blu-ray & DVD

Out this week on Blu-ray and DVD is Mad Men: Season 4 (Lionsgate) The exciting fourth season of the successful AMC show about advertising men in the 60s begins with the new firm of Sterling/Cooper/Draper & Pryce seemingly on the upswing. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) even accepts a Cleo award for one of his campaigns. But Draper's drinking and womanizing leaves a toll. There is a fabulous episode with Don Draper and Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) brainstorming one long night at the firm that is brilliant. And a wonderful new character --  the crotchety new secretary Miss Ida Blankenship (Randee Heller), which plays out beautifully. And Don's ex-wife Betty's (January Jones) harsh dealings with her developing daughter is heartbreaking. A great season, with terrific performances, and a typically jaw-dropping finale. Unfortunately due to the wrangling over a new contract we now have to wait until 2012 for more to come: wake up AMC, this is the best original series you'll ever be able to associate yourself with.
