Film Gecko Giveaway: Mad Men Season 3 Box Set

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:

  • Feature-length audio commentaries on each episode.
  • Medgar Evers: An Unsung Hero: A documentary exploring the life and legacy of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers.
  • Clearing the Air: The History of Cigarette Advertising: A visual depiction of the relationship between “Big Tobacco” and advertising.
  • We Shall Overcome: The March on Washington: The historic “I Have a Dream” speech accompanies a pictorial gallery of the March on Washington.
  • ‘Mad Men’ Illustrated: Meet the mad artist behind the illustrations inspired by ‘Mad Men.’

TO ENTER: 1) Leave a comment on this post, AND 2) hop over to Facebook and “like” my Film Gecko fan page (if you’re already a fan, just leave a comment here and you’re still in the running). The contest ends at midnight on Sunday, July 25 (just in time for the season 4 premiere!). A winner will be drawn randomly, and I’ll email the winner for their mailing address after the contest ends. Good luck!

Can’t wait? Buy ‘Mad Men’ Season 3 on Amazon.

    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!!

    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.

    For everybody who admits to not seeing Mad Men: Get on board immediately. You have so much enjoyment waiting for you. Its characters, in particular, are complex and compelling.

    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!

  37. Christine Avatar

    Add me to the list of those who haven’t yet seen this but now that I’ve read the description I know I’d enjoy seeing it.
