Yesterday the folks from AMC revealed via Facebook the official details on the Mad Men season two DVD and Blu-ray releases, and I thought I would share them with you since we all know that everyone should be watching this show. According to the posting, the DVD and Blu-ray sets will be released on Tuesday, July 14, 2009, just in time for the show’s third season, which starts later this summer.
The special features will include:
- Audio commentaries with cast and crew on all 13 episodes
- “Birth of an Independent Woman, Part 1 and Part 2” – from housewives to working women, this featurette examines the rise of female independence in the Mad Men era
- “An Era of Style” – this featurette explores the fashion of the 1960’s and its lasting influence on designers today
- “Time Capsule” – interactive featurettes paying homage to historical events of the 1960’s and the daring generation that lived through them
The two sets are already available for pre-order on Amazon, with the Blu-ray currently retailing for $37.39 and the DVD selling for $44.99. I would chalk that up as a win for those of us who collect the HD format. You don’t see the Blu-ray coming in cheaper that often. You might want to get your pre-order on.
