Season 4 of the critically acclaimed AMC series Mad Men starts up Sunday, July 25th at 10pm.

Summary
Mad Men is an American dramatic television series created and produced by Matthew Weiner. The show is broadcast on the American cable network AMC and is produced by Lionsgate Television. It premiered on July 19, 2007 and completed its third season on November 8, 2009. The production of a fourth season began on April 12, 2010. Season 4 will premiere on AMC July 25, 2010 at 10/9c.

The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.

Mad Men has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its historical authenticity and visual style, and has won numerous awards, including three Golden Globes, a BAFTA and six Emmys. It is the second cable series to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series and the first basic cable series to do so.

If you've never seen this show, you owe it to yourself to catch up.

Exceptional television. AMC's really brought their a-game the last 4-5 years with this and BB.

I usually wait 'til a season is over and watch it on a weekend (True Blood, BB), but there's no fucking way I can do that with Mad Men.

Oh, and the OP looks really great. Good job.

It drives me insane that DirecTV still doesn't have AMC HD. It sucks that I watch Mad Men and Breaking Bad in SD.
Aw...that is super shitty. I'm sorry, man.

I'm super hyped. I watched the first 3 seasons on Blu Ray.

Unfortunately, as a DirecTV subscriber, I'll have to suffer through 480i vanilla AMC, as they don't carry AMC HD, AFAIK

Can't fucking wait. Last season was fantastic and the storyline for this season looks like it could be another winner.

For the record AMC is all right again in my book. Sure they'll play the occasional shitty movie loaded with commercials but their original shows have been amazing.

I believe that NY Times article that I linked above has the time jump listed, but I didn't read through it since it's chock full of spoilers.

After binging on all three seasons in the space of a fortnight recently I am very much looking forward to Season 4.

I believe it's supposed to be
one year into the new agency. Which is pretty much where it should be - picking up right after the S3 finale wouldn't be able to give us the grand scope of how everything's changed, but this is still early on enough in SCDP to show us the growing pains.

Roger Sterling is way cooler than Don. Real talk.
"Oh if it isn't Martin Luther King. I oughta drop kick you off the roof!"

Seriously better than any of Don's lines last season.

I, for one, can't wait to see Betty put in her place.
Betty is a petulant brat, to be sure.

But when you think about it, you can't blame her for leaving Don. He's a serial philanderer and an absentee father. She had every right to dump his ass.

There's a funny double standard when it comes to Betty and Don. People seem to be far more accepting of Don's flaws than Betty's.
