Better Late than Never

Hopping on the bandwagon started by LB and MOMP, I've got to echo their sentiments about the loss of Studio 60. I just watched the last 3 episodes of the series last night, and found myself alternately laughing out loud and being brought to tears. In my life, I don't think there's any writer who has been able to do that to me nearly as well as Aaron Sorkin, and his absence from the line-up next year will leave a noticable gap.

And though I'm all for a Flaming Lips musical, I hope that Sorkin makes his way back to television in the not-so-distant future. Until then, I've got the first 4 seasons of the West Wing to help me get my fix.

Long live Aaron Sorkin!

If you have the time, check out Sports Night. Sorkins first show. Less serious than Studio 60 but still really good.

I liked the guy from Las Vegas who played the Air Force Captain in the last three episodes, "See these bars on my shoulders? Think I'm a hotel door man?"

I'm with N - I sense a roadtrip to Broadway in the distant future! And I'm going to go plug into the song for a few minutes...
