DVD: Mad Men: Season 3 (15)
Friday 23 April 2010
The penny-pinching Brits may now be running the show, but little else has changed at the Manhattan ad agency.
Don Draper still philanders, unreconstructed Roger Stirling still gets the best lines ("Remember, Don... when God closes a door, he opens a dress") and Pete Campbell remains smart, smarmy and twisted. And still not a lot actually, you know, happens. Frankly it's unsettling when something big does happen. Mad Men is beautifully costumed, exquisitely scripted and gorgeously paced, it's just the most beautiful TV series. Elisabeth Moss, January Jones and Christina Hendricks once again excel as Peggy, Betty and Joan, but Bryan Batt's "in the closet" Salvatore comes strongly to the fore here – the country's on the brink of a sexual revolution – but too late for Sal.
