The first rule of the Mad Men premiere is that you do not talk about the Mad Men premiere.

We'll say only this: the sixth season started off with a pensive Don Draper, more withdrawn than usual on a Hawaiian vacation with wife, Megan. It ended with the revelation that the honeymoon is over.

Television critics are predicting a dark season, but we'll spare the details for the fans who missed it.

This morning, we saw one colleague with an index finger in each ear, his eyes shut tightly, to avoid overhearing plot details in office conversations. We're also fans of the show. Still, sensory deprivation is hardly a proportionate response to potential spoiler alerts. May we suggest some alternate entertainment to help put things into perspective?
