My 2 cents

Studio 60 once more

Six episodes into the first (and only) season and I am hooked. I am actually not watching more than one episode a day because I want to prolong the season one as much as possible.

It is one of the smartest shows I have seen (and I have seen a few) and isn’t too difficult to follow either.
Why was this show cancelled?

Studio 60

Posted in Random Thoughts, something I like, TV by urmilesh on May 17, 2010

Ever since I have been enthralled by The West Wing (West Winging as Amitabh Bachchan calls it), I have been a great fan of Aaron Sorkin’s writing.

So it was with much anticipation that I started watching “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”. 2 episodes into the series, and I have not been able to figure out why it did not get an extension beyond one year. Within the 2 episodes it has shown itself to be funny, smart, witty, not thinking audience to be dodos, giving enough of a glimpse into behind the scenes atmosphere of a TV show (applies to US only I guess) to elicit interest without being overbearing, and being played out by good actors.

I do hope that while watching the remainder of its one and only season I do not end up agreeing with the decision to cancel it.
