(Yet more downtime yesterday. Sorry. We’re still trying to figure out what the problem is.)
Even though I said I wasn’t psyched about the new TV season, I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip. It has quite a lineup of actors including a surprisingly un-annoying Matthew Perry and a very subdued Amanda Peet. Even though its frenetic pacing was a little distracting at first, it makes sense for the theme of the show. In Studio 60, a pair of writers that had been fired from a SNL-type live sketch comedy show are re-hired after a top dog at the show steps in front of the camera on live TV and declares how awful the show has gotten. The pair work through a number of personal issues as well as all the issues that go into making edgy live television. I dig it.
The first two episodes were really engaging and I’m looking forward to seeing where they go with this one.
