1. David Bianculli reviews Sunday’s season premiere of Mad Men (He promises no spoilers!)— 

"Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men, has established his own narrative rules for his Emmy-winning drama series, the continuing story of advertising executive Don Draper in the 1960s. On Mad Men, the breaks between seasons sometimes take longer than a year — and when the show returns, it doesn’t pick up where it left off.

Instead it leaves a gap, and viewers have to start each season as though they’re the ones who left — they have to catch up. What year is it? What’s the status of Don’s marriage? And what’s going on with all the other people in and around Don’s life?”
