Any fans? I'm working on the third season now. Great acting and cinematography/set work, obviously, and really it's just an interesting slice out of a turbulent time in American culture.

I've only managed to see the first two or three episodes, but what i saw i really loved. Just need to find the time to sit down and watch the whole thing. I did hear about the general "arc" of the first season and the connections with the election of 1960, which to me is just awesome!

the aesthetics of the show are outstanding, and admittedly I've only watched a couple handful of episodes, mostly from the first season... but it's a classy show. Quite slow paced, but I think it builds tension between characters very well. The structure, however, is standard soap opera, though stylistically and in terms of how they handle content they are fairly bold... Not wholly my cup of tea, but damn Christina Hendricks does sweeten the deal.

I've watched the first six episodes. It's pretty good, and it seems primed to really suck me in at this point.

Huge fan. Watched seasons 1-3 during the summer just in time for the beginning of season 4, which I followed at same pace as you guys in the States. Nothing but love from me. Interesting characters, magnificent acting, plots that unfold slowly and sweetly and really pleasant for the eyes as well (I guess that's a compliment for the cinematography department).

Overall a great atmosphere. Damn excited to rewatch the first three seasons at Christmas when I get the DVDs. :dance:

Saw some of the first season of Netflix. I've pretty much never watched any TV dramas, but this is so stunningly riveting. Everything about the pace feels so perfect and the aesthetics of the show are just so tremendous, especially Christina Hendricks. Damn.

The best second-best show on any given network since The Sopranos.

Has anyone seen all four seasons? I thought the most recent season was a notch below the others, but oddly enough, also had the best single episode in the show's run (The Suitcase).

I finished the 4th season finale. Betty went into full on bitch mode this season, and Peggy went into full on awesome mode. The episode with just her and Don was so crazy engaging. I absolutely love this show.

The scene in the finale of Season 1 where Don is making the pitch for "The Wheel" has always stuck with me as exceptionally well done.
