I'll try to add to what Loerke said by espousing my belief that this may be the best show in the history of television. This is coming from the king of Cynical Island, a guy who'd rather eat his own vomit with a spoon than watch a minute of Dancing With The Stars, Survivor, or American Idol. I love television so much that I last paid for cable or satellite in April of 2010; yet I spent the last 3 weeks glued to Netflix watching seasons 1-4 of Mad Men. If there is a negative here, it's that I am jealous of the writers. Secondly, I'm jealous of the direction. Third...and perhaps this should be first...I'm jealous of the acting, particularly that of Jon Hamm.
Miss this at your own risk- a "risk" that is comparable to missing out on the best sex, music or wine of your life (sorry, but I really think it is that good)
Sheer genius....definitely five stars.

Do we need more proof? Someone, anyone tell me.
The USA received its first (perfect) credit rating in 1917. Day before yesterday it was downgraded for the first time since...yet some of you want to give this FOUR stars??? What is that, a little insurance policy lest your RIA brethren think you less than..um..er..."open minded"?
Give me a break.
The ideology of the liberal- which should rightfully be called the leftist; though they have chosen for themselves the moniker of "progressives"- is that all faith and power should be placed in a central government. This is the same as the ideologies of Hitler, Stalin and Mao, to name just three examples; yet stupid people are incapable of learning from history, so we continue to repeat the mistakes of the past.
That an all powerful central government is or should be an all things to all people provider and problem solver is contrary to the United States Constitution. This is, in essence, the liberal ideology. While its infringements on individual freedoms continue to be exposed, so too do its failures, but a certain cadre of stupid Americans refuse to see the handwriting on the wall.
If any of you care to disagree with this visa vie blaming Bush, then kindly step forward with the courage of your convictions (as well as your superior education) and point out to me specifically how Bush was a conservative, and not himself a liberal.
The bottom line is that big brother government can not and will not do it better. We were made by our creator to be free individuals, in this case come together to form a more perfect union. We were not made to be serfs beholden to the postmodernist BS liberalism that found a voice, unfortunately, in the 1960's.

I wasn't familiar enough with Amy Winehouse's body of work to call her untalented, but I do know enough about her to agree that she possessed a level of musical talent-and I agree with Bird that she was head and shoulders above much of what passes for "talent" today.

I would add however, that the tragedy of her death at such a young age goes beyond what I've read here and elsewhere. Yes, she died very young. Yes, her death represents a waste of talent. More importantly to me though, is the realization that she represented the ethos of western culture. The fact is that she looked and acted like a reject from a New Orleans whore house. This was not only accepted; it was lauded. In this day and age, sadly, it actually added to her appeal. She paid the price for that lifestyle, but the "style" continues to be popular despite her untimely death.
