I got the first season on DVD for my birthday. I'm very impressed. Still watching it, so no spoilers, please.

Can I stream this show on the internet somewhere? I'd really love to watch it, but I don't want to download all the episodes and fill up my already nearing full HD.

Just finished the first season. Wow. I've never been one to sit and watch episode after episode of a show at one sitting. Always found it tedious and it usually takes me a while to get through a season of a show. Can't wait for season 2.

Phenomenal show; one of my favorites.

I don't know about streaming video, but you can rent the dvds from Netflix...provided you have an account, of course.

The second season is just as good.

Bump. Just finished season 1.  It was the best Christmas gift that I received this year.  It is written perfectly- even the shallow characters are deeply drawn. Season 2 is on order.

I found it boring, but I watched 2 seasons nonetheless.

If you didn't like the first two seasons, I doubt that you'd like the third one.  The writing felt weaker until the last few episodes.

Yeah, the third season was a bit of a bore, except for a few fantastic episodes (like the finale and the one involving a certain lawn-mower accident).

I had forgotten about the lawn mower.  Way to impress your new employers...

Atlas Mods as Mad Men Characters:

Don Draper = Joe
Roger Sterling = Sam Spade (err... I guess Gustaf now)
Bert Cooper = Al
Lane Pryce = Mikado
Pete Campbell = Inks
Harry Crane = Beet
Ken Cosgrove = Bacon King

Or, in other words, thoughts on Season 5?  A lot of promise because the period of 60s it's passing. I really liked Season 4.  Probably my second favorite after Season 1.

It's such a blatent Great American Television Drama, isn't it? Love it though, despite the obvious issues. But it's no longer on the BBC and has moved over to Sky. I don't have Sky. If only there was a solution to this situation...

The first four seasons are streaming on netflix. Great show! The Season Five premiere was just the other day. I'm happy they're moving into the late 60s now, things should get very interesting.

The last episode was fantastic even though nothing actually happened. Probably the funniest episode the show's ever done. I don't really have any idea of what they're trying to do with Season 5, but I'm totally on board with it.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Completely agree. There wasn't much going on (I'm still trying to make sense of the wallet-thing; I'll have to pay more attention to that when I re-watch) but it was a nice re-introduction to our old friends. I'm really curious as to where they take this.

From what I've seen that's pretty typical for that show.

Well I'll have to watch it then; when does it become available online?

The last episode was the first I've ever seen and I was pretty impressed. I feel like it's too late for me to catch up though. Someday I might invest the time in it, I liked it a lot even though it's not really my type of show.

Just because some episodes are slow doesn't mean that nothing happens.

Beet, the first episode from Season 5 is actually online officially here:

http://www.amctv.com/shows/mad-men

I also enjoyed the wallet subplot that basically went nowhere. Of course, maybe it will go somewhere later in the season. Or not. It's never possible to know for sure with this show. Kind of like The Sopranos in that sense. I like it all though.

Also, Don's current wife is very hot in this episode.
