Mad Men’s fifth season pitted the cast of the period drama in the latter half of the 1960’s as they changed advertising allegiances and dealt with the changing nature of a world fighting in Vietnam while simultaneously beginning to like the Rolling Stones. Season 5 was rollicking and wild and it is no surprise the season finale earned the highest viewership for a season finale on the AMC show ever, pulling in 2.7 million viewers.
Mad Men is a perennial favorite among viewers and fans, earning 17 Emmy nominations this season. Apparently, Lionsgate Entertainment wants just enough time to slap any winner stickers on the Blu-Ray box before they let Mad Men – Season 5 into homes. Season 5 will be available on both Blu-Ray and DVD beginning on October 16, with the four-disc DVD series running fans $49.98 and the 3-disc Blu-Ray costing $49.97. Cost is pretty equivalent with both sets and luckily they both come with the same bonus features, so it is really a toss up to buy, depending on what sort of disc player you own.
