It has been said ad nauseum that Mad Men is a show that "requires careful watching". I will agree. It's sensitively done and nuanced. You have to actually watch the characters faces, tone of voice, interpersonal interactions and more. Not that it's a chore to do so! This exquisite level of intractate character development is what makes the show so very fascinating.
Here are some specific Season 3 Alerts.
This was the DVD, I would go with the BluRay if you can afford to.
Betty his wife finds out that she is pregnant and they both decide to give their marriage one last shot. Apparently, women in the 60s had more chores and rights. There was no way she was going to leave even though she was aware of her husband's ways. Draper's marriage isn't the only thing that is in the verge of breaking. The advertising agency where Draper works merges with a British company leaving Pete, Don's colleague, fighting for his job with Ken. Meanwhile, Joan quits her job to be a house wife with the hope that her husband who is a doctor will get a promotion.
She is later seen begging for her job back after the promotion plan fails. The commentaries that are in the episodes are funny and some are out rightly lame. Brace yourself for a roller coaster of emotions. There are episodes that will leave you sympathizing with one character and have you hate the same character in the next episode. The character growth of each cast member is the glue factor in mad men. For instance, in season 1, Pete's marriage with Trudy was in the verge of a breakup but in this season, the marriage seems to be improving. There was also great expectation that Don's 3 kids would start to get along in this chapter but it didn't happen.
Sally Draper, the eldest of the 3 children acted so beautifully this season and it seems like she is destined for greatness and she is the young actress to watch out for.
The last episodes of the season are full of action and suspense- a strategy meant to induce anticipation for season 4. You wouldn't want to get spoilers in a review and making time during the weekend to watch this season is the cleverest thing to do. You will not regret watching this certified suspense filled rib cracker.
There are so few shows that you can watch more than once and find something new and few shows you can analyze. It's just as fun to discuss it afterwards as it is to watch it. If this sounds too much like high school English -- and not in a good way -- then you'd be better off taking a pass. However, if this is the type of show you seek out, then enjoy. If you haven't seen the previous seasons, start there and enjoy it from the beginning. I'll envy you your opportunity to enjoy three seasons in a row!
In season three, we continue to deal with the Draper marriage -- a union strained to nearly the breaking point in season 2. There was some really beautiful writing and acting here. One of the beauties of this show is how in the course of a scene a viewer's sympathies can change or be torn between characters. The marriage between Pete and Trudy shows some terrific growth and depth that could not have been predicted in season 1. Don Draper also meets a mogul who is probably rolling in his grave over the second most famous thing the family name now evokes. Sal, played by Bryan Batt, has several wonderful scenes, starting with the first episode of the season. Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sally Draper, is turning out to be a talented young actress, as highlighted in an episode called The Arrangements, as well as in the season finale. Frankly, I could just continue mentioning members of this terrific cast, as they all are a pleasure.
The Kennedy assassination is featured and handled in a way never seen before, I think, and it's one character's reaction to it and events surrounding it that causes him/her/it to make a truly huge decision.
On to the Bluray: I had to return the first copy as defective -- no matter what I hit, it wanted to rewind. Fortunately, the next copy was perfect, and Amazon has always handled returns well. Because this is a show that caters to people who want to really enjoy the writing and acting and to even study it a little, this set carries on in the tradition of previous seasons in offering tons of commentary -- most episodes have two commentaries. As always, some people really do a better job that others. The creator, Matthew Weiner, always has good insights. Kiernan Shipka, I'm not kidding, seemed to really be in touch with her character in a way that many adults can only envy. Other extras are a mixed bag, although I enjoyed the 2 part doc on cigarette advertising.
Love this show!
For all the fans and true "Mad Men" addicts out there, Season 3 was much-anticipated. At the end of Season 2, we had reason to believe that Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the charismatic creative director of Sterling-Cooper, had come to his place of reckoning and was ready to turn a new leaf (sorry for all the cliches) in his marriage, if not his career. His gorgeous, emotionally stunted wife Betty (January Jones) just found out she was pregnant, and they apparently decide to mend their marriage and try to make a go of it. Presumably, women didn't have many choices back in the '60's. Also, Betty just might be that kind of woman - she needs a man to complete her.
But right from the beginning of Season 3, the viewer can see that not much has changed at all, and Don is off being the bad boy again. Betty seems in a world of her own with her pregnancy, and then her father's decline in health and the subsequent decisions that have to made give her all she can apparently cope with. I found myself growing angry at her numerous times because of her cold, unfeeling treatment of her adorable children. Even with all his immaturity, Don seems to be the far more caring parent, at least while face-to-face with his children. Sally Draper, their little girl, had some of the best acting of the season, and I think she will mature into a terrific actress.
So much happens on the career front, it would be a mistake to give it all away in a review. I heard complaints from various people that Season 3 was too slow -- but remember that this is a show about character development and nuance, above all. The last two episodes, about the Kennedy assassination and the Season finale, are as action-packed as any plot lover could want. They are magnificently written and acted, and left this viewer, at least, panting for Season 4. What more can a series offer?
Having stumbled upon this program in the first season, it made an instant impact on me, yet I find it hard to watch at times due to the dark nature of its underlying theme. Only nostalgia makes it bearable viewing for me. Some timing issues, writing flaws and less than great acting by some characters drags it slightly below top marks.
Scenario: the cusp of the 1960s: "Madmen" chronologically traces what many believe to be the greatest era of promise for the American way: the era of the Kennedy Camelot and the best of everything in one nation. America: the light on the hill; the envy of the world, boasting full employment, rising salaries, increasing leisure time, social security, the promise of genuine egalitarianism and technical advancements destined to take us to the stars by the year 2000. It is within this environment that we are introduced to a successful advertising company, replete with poised, glamorous people who seem to encapsulate the essence of the great American idyll itself; faces from a Norman Rockwell contemporary...but...look closer, something is wrong.
The principal is Don Draper (who bears a striking resemblence to '60s pop-crooner, Jack Jones), the all-American war hero: the archetypal good-looking, successful businessman; romeo by evening and family man extraordinaire as it suits; the ultimate renaissance man; cool and smooth; without a care in the world... surely this is a facade, though? The real man is not that bright; almost certainly a coward in war and most probably an incompetent manager, both at work and at home; destructive to all those around him. Perhaps this is why Draper is invariably depicted in a black suit: the personification of death. His adopting the persona of a dead man re-inforces the motif of death.
Draper's beautiful wife, Betty, could have stepped out of a portrait of "Stepford Brides" ...except that this Grace Kelly lookalike is flaky, to say the least. The question is, did Don push her over the edge, or did she inherit her madness from her senile father?
Welcome to Sterling Cooper, where the men and women play loose and dirty for gain. Chief paramour, Joan Holloway, covers up for the infidelities of the men and does a very good job of it. Even the naive young office girl, Peggy Olsen, is a single-mindedly ambitious young woman, willing to sleep with whomever and do whatever it takes to climb the ladder out of the secretarial pool. She has some talent, yes, but eschews scruples when an opportunity for advancement presents itself. Don Draper doesn't care when Sterling Cooper sells out to the interlopers; he gets his half million and gets to start his own company - and he gets to keep wunderkind, Peggy. Peggy's madness seems to be her propensity to ruin relationships.
As within so outside of the office we see depictions of dysfunctional families and relationships, or plans that go awry: a tabloid world of childishness and absurdity. The entire scenario is certainly negative, but is it accurate? Life can't be all bad. True, but one must see this in the context of the developing "Madmen" theme: I don't think the writers' intention was to balance the good with the bad. Rather, I believe the exaggerated negativity is deliberate; symbolic of something.
I won't go through every character one-by-one because it really would be redundant. Suffice to say, nearly all of them are flawed in some manner. At Sterling Cooper, almost everyone drinks, smokes and lusts without restraint. It's a cesspool of junk people with nothing more than well-dressed, fashionable front to disguise their corruption; shallow people motivated only by their carnal desires. It's no surprise they cheer for Nixon over JFK on election night in the hope of lower taxes.
At first glance, it may be that Pete Campbell's in-laws are the sole exemplar of the "good" people. They alone support him and his new bride with their fledgling (and straining) marriage and provide the cash Campbell's rich dad refuses to donate. ...and yet they spoil their nagging daughter rotten and attempt to micro-manage her marriage. So, on second thoughts, they do seem to be as addled as most characters in the series.
One of the more complex characters is Anna Draper, the wife of the man whose identity Don stole. She is totally accepting of Don and his "deadly sinning" and even harbours an inexplicable confidence that he can change. Anna seems to represent the light that juxtaposes Don's darkness; a light that is destined to be extinguished, along with the American dream itself.
The assassination of JFK is the pivotal moment when the new dream is revealed as a nightmare in waiting - this killing, a deranged act of national suicide - or had the fatal shot already been fired five years earlier in Brooklyn?
"Madmen" is an epic of failure: its characters take their partners and step out as the symbolic "dancers of death".
