After a too-long hiatus, Mad Men season 5 premieres on AMC on Sunday, March 25th at 9 PM / 8 PM Central. The crew from Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce will also be available via download and streaming on iTunes and Amazon Instant Video the next day for the cord-cutters out there (or folks who don’t get AMC). While the AMC website doesn’t mention it, you can catch up on seasons one through four on Netflix streaming (no word yet on when season 5 is coming to Netflix). I guess they like to keep secrets just like Don Draper or whatever his name is. The show has been gone so long, I almost forgot about it!
