See you in 68 days, Elisabeth Moss!

Mad Men, whose fourth season concluded with Don happily affianced to a wrong-for-him-in-all-the-right-ways secretary on October 17, 2010, is set to return on March 25, all disputes between creator Matthew Weiner and network AMC settled for now. And AMC’s promoting the show with a nod to just how long it’s been away: the countdown clock at the enigmatically named secretsareback.com would have it, we now have 68 days, 19 minutes, and seven… six… five… seconds until the show begins (which would mean that the show begins at 5pm EST, so perhaps AMC needs to recalibrate the clock).

Our suggestion: Put the countdown clock in the corner of your window and watch it slowly tick towards zero as you sip whiskey, blow smoke towards the screen, and ponder how the changing tides of history are always a perfect metaphor for whatever’s going on in your life, and vice versa.
