Plus, read our review of the Season Six premiere . Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, " Mad Men Returns: A Recap of Season Five," in which I round up all of the important plot points of Season Five of Mad Men in order to get you ready for Sunday's premiere. Season Six of Mad Men begins Sunday evening at 9 p.m. with a stellar two-hour premiere, 10 long months since we last traveled back in time with AMC’s devastatingly elegant period drama.

As there have been a lot of new visitors popping up here at Televisionary lately, I thought I'd take the opportunity this Fourth of July to take a look back at some recent posts that may have given you a reason to take a break (or sneak one) from work. (Not that I'm advocating that or anything, mind you.) Hopefully, you're off from work today, with the family, celebrating the birth of the US of A.

Ah, Memorial Day Weekend. That time of year which signals the end of the television season and the beginning of summer and, well, summer television. As there have been a lot of new visitors popping up here at Televisionary lately, I thought this would be a good time to take a look back at some recent posts that may have caught your eye, sparked your imagination, or--at the very least--given you a reason to take a break (or sneak one) from work.
