This is just a fluke like the VVVVVV charity thing was. "Hey, lets state something to get a bunch people interested and we'll give them some sort of deal?" "Oh whats that, it's Thanksgiving? Well, we have 49,889 people that like us, looks like we didn't quite make it. Sorry folks!" <whew!!>

Its rare to see $10 season sets that aren't 90's sitcoms on the shelf at Target. However, I know its possible b/c that's how I got like 6 seasons of Smallville last year from Best Buy. I just figure this show is to 'new' and 'hip' to be discounted so heavily. Especially for BD!!

I'd guess if they're close enough, they'll do some other deal that may not be as good as $10 each, though we'll see what happens.

All this thing needs to do is blow up somehow.

I haven't been on my Facebook since I created it (I don't have a picture or a profile) but I signed into my account just for this. I haven't seen the show, but I will glady pick it up on blu-ray for $9.99 a season.

Nearly 2,500 Likes. This is not going to happen. Amazon would have to put this front and center on their main page to get that many in a week, but they've been whoring out the Kindle their for years now.

Yeah it doesn't look like this is going to happen. Man that sucks. Word of mouth needs to spread faster. I wonder if this is up on slickdeals and many other websites?

I've never seen 1 single episode, but for $30, I'd definitely buy all three. Then I know I'd be hooked and buy the rest of the seasons on blu ray as they are released.

Come on Amazon, it's a win, win situation.

I posted it on SlickDeals but I'm not a regular visitor to the site so I'm not sure how it's gonna do there.

I checked it an only 2 other people have posted on it. Also not quite sure I posted it in the correct section.

This would be a phenomenal deal if it happens, which I think it will. I doubt Amazon will pass up selling these seasons since they obviously already plan to anyhow. I think this whole "50,000" thing is just a way to get people talking. How's the PQ on the BD versions versus the DVDs? Not that I would pass up a $9.99 BD TV set but still just wondering...

The PQ on blu-ray is fantastic. Much better than the DVDs.

Maybe if a bunch of us post this deal on the forums of Attack of the Show, we can get them to mention it on The Feed.

Posting it on other movie/tv blogs would help also.

Like people have already said, Amazon is hopefully going to sell these for 7.99 and 9.99 no matter what, but it doesn't hurt to help spread the word.

The Amazon Warehouses damn-well better have over 50,000 copies of each season on Blu ray alone. ;)

I figure they'll have a ton on hand, then if they run out they'll just give a backordered date. I just need S2 and 3, you guys can buy all the S1's for all I care :lol:

lol there is no way this deal is gonna happen. Amazon is only up to 3,200 since it started. I would bet 50k doesn't happen, but here's to hoping!

Done. I was hoping someone else would do it since I didn't have an account, but I just did it. Has anyone posted it on the AMC Mad Men page?

I bet they will offer the deal even if we don't reach 50k.

Hopefully. It would suck if they're like "We didn't reach 50,000, but we'll sell them on Black Friday for $16.99 a piece instead of $9.99 a piece"

for anyone new to mad men and decides to bite on this deal, be patient and stick with the show. i didnt start to really enjoy season 1 until episode 8 or so. from there it just gets better with season 3 being great and season 4 being amazing.

Agreed. The first 4 episodes are nothing special. 5-7 are OK and then it gets really really good. Worth sticking with.

They have Mad Men S1-3 on the Amazon Calender for Black Friday so it appears we'll get some form of a deal on it.

They're only up to 6,000 fans...I just got this in my email. Hopefully it'll be up to 50k by next Friday. I'd really like to get in on S2 and 3.

I got 8 of my friends on Facebook to sign up, it went from 2000 to 6000 in a couple days. Hopefully it keeps this exponential rate and will get to 50K by Thanksgiving.

I hope they set a limit to one of each season per customer.
