Sorry to go all tumblr on you there. But melancholy happens. So that’s where I’ve been.
The great news is that period TV is a-blooming this spring with Game of Thrones, Vikings, and Spartacus all at least sharing the screen for one more, gloriously bloody week. Mad Men‘s back, more ponderous and oblique, and slyly hilarious, than ever, and I want to write about all these things this weekend. But with clear eyes and full heart, I can say that I’ve found what I think is the most flawless opening season of a TV show I’ve ever had the pleasure to watch.
Get excited. I have thoughts on Friday Night Lights.
