guess there aren't many fans of this amazing series out there.
strange. I think this won either the golden globe or emmy for best drama or comedy series recently. Can't remember exactly which one.
It's a very cool look at a 60's ad agency.

Since I missed the first episode, I didn't watch it as it aired; on Blu would be a nice way to see it.

Heard many raves about the show.

Yes, great show. Great atmosphere. It's quite a laugh seeing what the workplace was like at the time...sexism, alcoholism...

Not a show for everyone, however. It can be quite plodding in some parts, but I found it fascinating.

Yes, I saw the USA piece. The Blu-ray set and the DVD set are priced the same, $50. While that is normal price for an entire season of regular network TV, wasn't there only about a dozen episodes so far of MM?

The wife and I watched all of Series 1 and liked it a lot. Can't say that I'd go out and buy it on BR after having already seen it, though -- it just doesn't strike me as the sort of thing I'd wanna watch multiple times.
