Mad Men: Season 7, Part 1 (2014)
Saturday 1st November 2014
The stylish, secretive and ruthless world of Madison Avenue advertising returns as Mad Men Season 7 - Part 1 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on 3rd November 2014, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Part one of the acclaimed drama's final season takes place in 1969, and sees Don Draper (Jon Hamm - Million Dollar Arm), Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss - Top Of The Lake), Roger Sterling (John Slattery - God's Pocket) and their fellow advertising executives fighting personal battles while struggling to remain relevant in an ever-changing New York City.
In the midst of the sexual, political and economic revolutions taking hold, Sterling Cooper & Partners are adjusting to the delicate dynamics of an office split between New York and Los Angeles, and all the problems this new set-up brings. Don is still dealing with the repercussions of his life-altering decision at the end of season six, while attempting to keep his marriage to Megan (Jessica Pare) afloat, while Peggy is adjusting to a new boss and Roger is continuing to embrace the freedoms offered as the new decade approaches.
From creator Matthew Weiner (The Sopranos), and featuring a stellar cast that also includes Christina Hendricks (God's Pocket), January Jones (X-Men: First Class) and Vincent Kartheiser (In Time) Mad Men Season 7 - Part 1 continues to set the bar impossibly high in stylish, nuanced and brilliantly compelling drama, while perfectly laying the foundations for the final seven episodes next year.
Named as one of the top ten television shows of all time by the Writers Guild of America, there's no doubt as to the legacy Mad Men will leave behind when the show draws to a close in 2015. Mad Men Season 7 - Part 1 is the perfect Christmas stocking-filler when released this November, along with the Mad Men Season 1-6 box set, available now.
