When we heard that Season 5 of Mad Men won’t be premiering until early 2012, we were thrust into a deep despair. What are we supposed to do this summer if we can’t follow the ups and downs of Don, Peggy, Joan, Roger, and the rest of the SCDP gang — watch Wipeout? Go outside, for Pete’s sake? (Oh, Pete, we may miss you most of all!) Ugh. Who else needs a drink?
Thankfully, the horizon isn’t totally bleak. Mad Men‘s explosive fourth season was released on DVD and Blu-ray today, and it’s packed with extras — a three-part documentary called “Divorce: Circa 1960s,” a featurette detailing “How to Succeed in Business Draper Style,” and, of course, commentaries for all 13 episodes that feature series creator Matthew Weiner, along with his cast and crew. Maybe, just maybe, watching every second of footage on each of these four discs will make the long wait ahead just a bit more bearable.
Lucky for you, EW is giving away 10 sets of Mad Men Season 4 on DVD. They’re courtesy of Lionsgate, and available while supplies last. Can’t wait to get your grubby little paws on one of these fabulous prizes? Then look below for instructions on how to enter our contest.
