I am hooked on Mad Men.
I love seeing all the accurate little details of the early 60's.
At the picnic where they leave all the litter behine. How every one is lighting up cigerates constantly. News events of the time

I gave this season a low rating because it just was not as good as the first, but don't lose interest as the third season does get much better. I was disappointed with season 2 but I'm glad I kept with the series. I was too invested to stop watching altogether. I just wonder why this season failed in my opinion, it was just too slow and less dramatic.

Still loving this series...potent lines delivered with conviction and grace. There is stuff here to make one think if you meditate on it long enough. On to Season Three for me...

The Moncton DVDs are dirty and scratched. Need to do a cleaning or some sort of restoration.

Good series. Really enjoyed the parts that I could actually watch.

Wonderful Series, looking forward to Season 3. Although it is about the 1960's it relates to today and proves that It Was Ever Thus, as my Mom used to say.

It's an interesting series, especially considering how it makes you react to the situations of the characters. Don Draper is a cheater and womanizer who has lied repeatedly to his wife, and quite frankly, doesn't deserve her. YET, this season makes you kinda root for him, and hope for the best. Funny how this thing appeals to men, yet it's clearly a soap opera.

I'm normally so cheap with the stars, but Mad Men is fantastic, what more could I want? This was a re-watch for me; this show is worth any number of re-watches.

LOVE this series. Definetly some of the best actors, writers, and directors (and costume designers) coming together to create a wonderful show! Recommend.

Excellent acting, it's so much like the real 50's that it's almost eerie....

Don: People may see things differently, but they don't really want to.

Don: I can explain.
Betty: I know you can. You're a gifted storyteller.

Betty: What would you do if you were me? Would you love you?
Don: I was surprised you ever loved me.

Roger: Peggy, can you get me some coffee?
Peggy: No.

Don: With you or without you I’m moving on. And I don’t know if I can do it alone. Will you help me?
Peggy: What if I say no? You’ll never speak to me again.
Don: No. I will spend the rest of my life trying to hire you.

Sally: I'm sorry I broke your suitcase.
Don: Find out how much it is to repair and it will come out of your allowance.
Sally: I don't have an allowance.
Don: Then don't break things.

Don: I keep going to a lot of places and ending up somewhere I've already been.

Don: And let’s also say that change is neither good or bad, it simply is. It can be greeted with terror or joy. A tantrum that says ‘I want it the way it was,’ or a dance that says ‘Look, something new.’

Ken: New York in August? It's like a great big melting wax museum. Nothing but those fat girls with the hairy armpits putting their feet in a fountain.

Don: Connie, this is my wife Betty.
Hilton: By golly, you are an indecently lucky man.

Peggy: Sex sells.
Don: Says who? Just so you know, the people who talk that way think that monkeys can do this. They take all this monkey crap and stick it in a briefcase, completely unaware that their success depends on something more than shoeshine. You are the product. You feeling something. That's what sells. Not them. Not sex. They can't do what we do and they hate us for it.

Gene: Hey Brooklyn, come home with me!
...
Peggy: Why should I?
Gene: Because I like you and we're having a good time and I'm a good kisser and you know you want to.
Peggy: Eugene, I'm in the persuasion business, and frankly I'm disappointed by your presentation.

Bobbie: This is America; pick a job and become the person who does it.
Bobbie You’re never gonna get that corner office until you start treating Don as an equal. And no one will tell you this, but you can’t be a man. Don’t even try. Be a woman.
