Mad Men - Images - Inside & Out! - of the Limited Edition 'Lighter' Package, plus Specs & Extras for Season 1 DVDs & Blu-ray

Season 1 on standard DVD and hi-def Blu-ray both ship on July 1st

Posted by David Lambert
    The ground-breaking new show from AMC that critics are calling "an instant classic" is coming to DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Set in 1960 New York City, MAD MEN explores the glamorous and ego-driven "Golden Age" of advertising, where everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what it seems. And no one plays the game better than Don Draper (Golden Globe - winner Jon Hamm), Madison Avenue's biggest ad man - and ladies' man - in the business.

    Winner of two Golden Globes, MAD MEN Season One includes all 13 episodes plus provocative special features, and is available in a limited edition, classic metal "lighter" package. Don't miss the series that TV Guide, Time and The Chicago Tribune hailed as the #1 show of 2007.
Last week Lionsgate announced the July 1st release of Mad Men - Season 1 on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Late yesterday they provided retailers with details and package art for these packages, including a first look - inside and out - at the cool "lighter" packaging in the Limited Edition release.

The DVD release will be on 4 discs, priced at $49.98 SRP, with video in 16x9 Widescreen and audio in English - 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio. The Blu-ray Disc release will come on 3 discs, priced at $49.99 SRP, with video in 1080P High Definition 16x9 Widescreen, and sound in English - 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. The DVD will be closed captioned for the hearing impaired, while apparently the Blu-ray Disc version will not. Both have subtitles in English and Spanish, though, and both contain the following list of bonus material (in addition to 616 minutes of featured episodes):
  • "MAD MEN Series Commentary," audio commentaries on all 13 episodes
  • "Establishing MAD MEN," featurette exploring the world of MAD MEN
  • "The Desire of the American Dream," featuring the 1960's creative revolution in media
  • "Pictures of Elegance," photo gallery with commentaries from the costume, hair and production designers
  • "Scoring MAD MEN" Featurette
  • MAD MEN Music Sampler
We finish up today with a look at the Limited Edition "lighter" packaging, shown here for DVDs (Lionsgate's info to retailers state that the Blu-ray will also be available in the "lighter"). Below that are pictures of what seems to be the DVD and Blu-ray Disc's standard packaging (or is that actually the exterior packaging which the "lighter" ships inside of? Lionsgate's info unfortunately doesn't say). Enjoy!
