I’m a Sorkin fan. I thought The West Wing was one of the best shows on TV while Sorkin was still running it, and a great deal of my knowledge of how our government works (or should ideally work) came from that show. One of the things I’ve liked about Studio 60 was just how much like The West Wing it was in pacing and writing style. Even some of the actors were the same, people who’ve proven to be able to handle the way Sorkin writes. Hell, the title of the episode is in the same font.
Studio 60 stopped being similar to The West Wing last night, and practically turned into a rerun.
