Portrait of the author on vacation.

Hey all, it’s Memorial Day, that annual American holiday in which we honor the men and women who lost their lives protecting our right to have soft little office jobs—sitting on our candy asses, writing about TV shows—by taking the day off. Barring any major breaking stories that simply can’t wait, you won’t see much action on Newswire today, but there are still a few new things on the site for you to peruse—like new Inventory and Watch This entries, and a handful of TV Club reviews, including Mad Men’s midseason finale that you can now spend an entire day discussing without worrying about your boss. We’ll return to our own honorable duty of making regularly scheduled Newswires tomorrow.*

*Well, I won’t, because I’m on vacation until next Monday. But the others will. You guys have fun without me.
