    I am glad this show is on again. I like this type of TV and just wish this episode had been shown further back in time.

    This series just seems smarter than a lot of TV out there.

    I'm with you, unfortunately the show has been canceled and they're just showing episodes they already had filmed. At least we get a few more.

    Yep.

    Going to watch all the remaining episodes, but it is a bummer that is has been cancelled.

    Aaron Sorkin is too intelligent for his own good. He writes smart, witty dialogue, hires good actors to play his characters and quality directors to make each episode. Clearly this is a recipe for failure in American television. :evil:

    I'm sure the guy is mega talented...the West Wing early on was a big big hit...but all the great acting, directing and witty dialogue can't save a show that dealt with a topic most people just don't give a flip about. In this case a show about a fake SNL style show...SNL and it's ilk have lost their popularity years and years ago. Sure 30 Rock is surviving better, but it's a quick 22 minutes of fast paced humor as opposed to hour long dry drama and attempts at humor.

    It is sad that America can only digest drama if the topic is law, medicine, crime (perpetuating and investigation) or politics.

    The only other option seems to be downright soap opera style shows.

    I actually won the daily double due to some posts over in the "Blu-Ray and HD DVD" section. :p

    Hey I like "The Office" , "Ugly Betty" and the Food Network!

    :wink: :lol:

    "Ugly Betty" is the only semi-drama in that list, and it definitely is "soap opera" style.... or at least mimicking/mocking telenovelas.

    Sounds like you need to just focus on watching DVD's or channels like TLC, Food Network, History Channel and the dozens of non-network channels....should make ya much more happy. :)

    Sports Night


    BTW, Studio 60 isn't about a fake SNL show, it's about the characters.

    Another excellent show and one of my favorites to put on when watching TV on DVD.

    True...a great example of a another of his niche shows (like S60).

    Sports Night was one of my favorites.

    Again... people just seem unable to accept a show that does not fall under one of the existing dramatic settings.
