Could someone explain Mark Rothko to me?

Okay, I admit it: I don't understand why anyone thinks Mark Rothko's paintings are good, much less great. Last night, I taped Simon Schama's The Power of Art hoping that he would tell me how to look at Rothko paintings, but it's just not doing anything for me. I've seen them in person, and watched them discussed on tv, and am now turing to the Awesome Power Of The Internet for guidance.

What do people see in Rothko that I don't?
