“Mad Men” starts again April 5 here on AMC — the final season.
And now yet another reason to live: “Better Call Saul,” the lawyer from “Breaking Bad,” here on AMC. If you’ve missed the first four, treat yourself. So good.
And a completely zany “Mary Tyler Moore for the Twenty-First Century” is available for binging here on Netflix — “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” You think Mary had spunk? Wait til you meet Kimmy.* Being a creature of Tina Fey, with no small assist from Jane Krakowski, it is just ridiculously funny most of the time.
And there are lots more, but no time. I still have episodes of “The Roosevelts” in queue!
The problem with kids these days, I keep telling people: they don’t watch enough television.
*Lou Grant, famously: “Mary: You’ve got spunk.” Long pause, as Mary blushes and beams. “I hate spunk.”
Quote of the Day
Every gun that is fired, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.~Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953
