Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men
One question has been asked more than any other on this season of Mad Men: Who is Bob Benson?
As soon as the talkative, eager-to-please Bob (James Wolk) turned up with two cups of coffee in his hands in the Season 6 premiere, fans began speculating about his importance. Was he a government agent infiltrating the firm? Was he the long-lost son of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) from his days in the whorehouse? Or was he the time-traveling spawn of Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) who had come back to 1968 to work alongside his parents?

It's so hard finding good shows about help these days.
PBS' hit Brit import Downton Abbey, which humanizes the servants and nobility with equal sensitivity and wit, is an exception. In the second cable series within a month depicting the class divide between the unhappy rich and the equally conflicted domestics who tidy their fabulous homes if not their messy lives, both extremes of the economic scale are patronized with cartoonish levels of camp and melodrama.

Question: So I was watching two shows I really like this week coming to the end of their seasons. The first, Orphan Black, is not so well known, though I expect that is in the process of changing. The other, Game of Thrones, is very well known and discussed.

This week, Game of Thrones shocked and shattered viewers with its long-anticipated Red Wedding episode, "The Rains of Castemere." Bravo launched "Battle of the Sous Chefs," its online counterpart to the upcoming fifth season of Top Chef Masters. In music news, a father and his 2-year-old son recorded an adorable cover of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," and new Bachelorette Desiree rapped with Soulja Boy. Jimmy Kimmel Live correspondents asked viewers where they were when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby was born (even though the birth hasn't happened yet). Over in a France, a musician recorded a symphony of sorts by banging instruments on the Eiffel Tower. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
