mad-men-jon-hamm-don-draperMad Men’ is one of those shows I started watching about a year after it premiered. I watched season one on DVD, catching up to watch seasons two and three in real time.

Season four premieres Sunday, July 25 at 10/9c on AMC, and I’m giving away the Season Three DVD Box Set to celebrate! See below for details on how to enter.

I’m absolutely in love with ‘Mad Men.’ It’s stylish, it features a bunch of great characters, and it captures the 1960s era beautifully, from the fedoras to the Jackie O styles (check out the ‘Mad Men’ fashions).

If you’re not familiar with the show, it follows the drama at one of New York’s most prestigious ad agencies in the 1960s. The focal point is Don Draper (Jon Hamm), who’s mysterious and dashing and talented. His wife, Betty (January Jones), is an ice queen who’s ready to implode with pent-up housewife angst.

The colorful characters at the agency include Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser – you’ve seen him as Angel’s son on ‘Angel’), the buxom Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks), and  Roger Sterling (John Slattery, who’s been in just about every show on TV).

mad-men-season-3-dvd THE GIVEAWAY: ‘Mad Men,’ Season 3 DVD Box Set (value: $40). The 4-disc set includes all 13 episodes, as well as  these bonus features:

  1. I adore Mad Men, too, and somehow I got off track last season — only saw the first couple of episodes. Would love to get the DVD set and catch up!

  5. […] becoming a regular viewer of the show, I've always admired the style. GQ and Esquire fell in love wMad Men – I've only watched Mad Men in passing. I know, I know. Big mistake on my part. While I may be late […]

  6. I love this show. When I am in the set kitchen, it reminds me of the kitchens of friends when I was growing up. Since our TV is in a room for B&B guests, I cannot watch it Season 3 summer. Sob!!

  7. Just started watching season one. It’s a slow build, but it’s a really great well-written and sophisticated show. Would love to gert me hands on this set!

  8. This is one of the best-written, most immediately enjoyable shows I’ve seen – hoping to catch up before the season premiere later this month.

  9. Mad Men is my favorite show and I can’t wait for the new season. I liked your FB page. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. You know, I’ve never seen a single show from this series. And now your write up makes me want to. I love how men look in 1960s style clothes. I think I should rent and watch with hubby. It will be like foreplay.

  11. I never had a chance to see this show, but I have heard the rave reviews, so I would like to check it out.

  12. I adore Man Men. I started just like you, Jane. In fact, I watched all of Season One in one weekend, just in time for the premiere of Season Two. That was a fantastic weekend.

  13. Big fan of Mad Men. I actually didn’t start watching until about a year ago but I caught up quicky and I totally love this show. I liked your FB page.

  14. I would absolutely love to have this in my collection – I adore this show! Also, I like you on facebook. Thanks so much for the chance!

  15. Friends have been telling me for a long time I’d love Mad Men, but I haven’t explored it yet. I don’t get Netflix or the pay channels, so that makes it hard to keep up with series like this. It sure sounds like my kind of show, though. I don’t have great luck with contests, but here’s hoping!

  16. This is one of my favorites. Great characters and it captures the era perfectly. Like you on fb (Cynthia Conley)

  17. I love, love, love Mad Men and I’d love to win the DVD. In fact, my friends and I dressed up and went to a bar that was hosting a Mad Men premiere party last season.

  18. Please Enter Me In Your Mad Men: Season Three DVD Giveaway.
    I Haven’t Seen All These Episodes So It Would Be Great To Win This DVD Set. Thanks For Having This Giveaway.

  19. I’ve already got Mad Men seasons 1 and 2 on my shelf, I’d love to finish off the set and see season 3. We don’t get cable any more, so no watching it live any more. 🙁 (facebook fan). Thanks.

  20. I like film gecko on FB-tracey byram. I never miss an episode of Mad Men and would enjoy rewatching season 3.

  21. Please enter me in this Giveaway. I’m a fan of your Film Gecko fan page on FB. Mad Men is amazing! I can’t wait for the start of season 4 tonight!
