With the Four Seasons being the source material for Jersey Boys, and Springsteen still going strong, it seemed a good time to revive interest in the Rascals. Indeed, to revive the Rascals, themselves.

Even if you haven't ever been to Vermont, you've got some Green Mountains in your mind. I know you do. There's that image of a town with candles in windows. There are those trees tapped for sugaring. And there's that swirling nighttime snow.

In many ways, the video prefigured all sorts of American pastimes, from widespread paranoia about government to a loss of faith in photographic truth and the news media, from the acceptance of graphic violence to newer concerns about copyright.

Even though Season 5 was a down year for Mad Men, it was still clearly one of the best shows on television. It took something very special to best it. Which brings us to Homeland. I'm pleased that Homeland won for best drama.

Jon Hamm doesn't even seem to fit in his clothes anymore. I fear Matthew Weiner has accomplished the impossible: he has turned Don Draper into a wimp. And me into a Mad Woman.
