TV me behind the times, but I didn't start watching "Mad Men" until this week, when it became available on Netflix streaming. son #2 and I have now watched four episodes, and my immediate reaction is that the scenes taking place in the office are absolutely brilliant, and the scenes taking place in the home setting are odd and, in some cases, deeply disturbing.

If you're not watching "Wilfred" and "Louie," all I can say is...start watching "Wilfred" and Louie." If you haven't seen "Wilfred," the premise is that Elijah Wood sees his neighbor's dog as a man in a dog suit - an incredibly misogynistic, sex-crazed and politically incorrect man - while everyone else sees him as a dog. Oh, and did I mention that the "dog" loves to smoke dope, incessantly?

And "Louie" - well, all I can say is to look up Louie CK on YouTube, and enjoy. The man is a comic genius - dark, inappropriate, self-hating, you name it - all a great combination.

So if you're not watching, well...start watching. But be prepared. Caveat Emptor. Parental Advisory, and all that crap.
