Studio 60 - Worth a Watch...

Finally got to see an episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and quite enjoyed it. Usually I’m at work, so I might have to start recording this. Either that, or pick up the inevitable DVD. Had some pretty funny moments, and the quick dialogue was great. I thought I might wind up just seeing a version of Perry’s Chandler from Friends, but he actually pulled off another character. Unique to see that so fast after the end of Friends. Usually these sitcom stars can’t break free of the mold – see Seinfeld alumni. I liked Timothy Busfield as the cool headed director and Whitford, Peet, and the other cast members were firing right along well too, so this show might stick around.

That’s one thing about new series. One, I work nights with no Tivo, so recording everything I would like to see would be a hassle. Two, most series get cancelled so fast it’s not worth the time to get into them. Unless a show has been on at least a year and renewed, what’s the point of investing in it? Thank goodness for DVD…

Glad to hear you liked Studio 60. It's not as good as The West Wing but it's one of the more enjoyable new shows on this season in my estimation. FYI, abc.com and nbc.com air the most current episodes of a number of their current shows on their sites starting the day after. So if you catch it before the next week's episode, you can actually watch it online for free!

Thanks for the new job congrats! It's nice to be employed...even if it may be temporary.

I looked at the website, but either it was taking forever to load or something was up because I couldn't get the last episode to play. Oh well, that's what BitTorrent is for :)

Good Luck on the new job.
