Four seasons initially, but up to seven seasons of the widely acclaimed "Mad Men" to be made available for streaming from Netflix.

First Four Seasons of "Mad Men" Will Be Made Available To Watch Instantly Streaming From Netflix on July 27, 2011

...Produced, distributed and owned by Lionsgate, "Mad Men" has made television history as the only cable series to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama and the Golden Globe for Best Television Series-Drama for three consecutive years...

Why have you waited? Have the discs sent.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I don't need no stinkin' discs! That is so-o-o-o last century. I only stream Netflix. No more physical media for this guy! :grin:

I respect your choice, but Mad Men is beautiful on BluRay...that is if you have a BR player. :)

Yup, bought the first three when Amazon had them for $9.99 each and just got the fourth.

The best television series of all time.

There are two shows that are almost shockingly transformed by being experienced in HD: Mad Men and Gossip Girl. They both look pleasant but awfully pedestrian in 4:3 SD but when you go 1080p...YOWZA! The art direction and cinematography on both is literally awesome.

Guess I won't complain too much if it is delayed six months, I love the show:

Weiner is on the verge of inking a two-year deal worth close to $30 million, but is pushing back on three of AMC’s asks for Season 5: integrated product placement, the cutting of two minutes per episode (to accomodate increased ad time), and the elimination or reduction of two series regular cast members.


I can actually appreciate this. Don't tell the writer to reduce the cast, make the show shorter, and integrate advertising into the show. Pitiful AMC.

On a side note, if there was ever a show that could accomodate product integration, uh, this is it. Imagine if Lucky Strike was still around and funding the show...

Yep, I like streaming too, but for $2 more per month, there's many shows (including Mad Men) and Movies that must be seen on Blu Ray.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
