Goodbye STUDIO 60

A few brief words on the passing of STUDIO 60. I was one of the few people that truly enjoyed STUDIO 60 right from the start. I remember reading the pilot script the summer before it aired and I thought it was brilliant. I waited, I watched, I got involved in the show and then […]

STUDIO 60 Uneven Ep Ends in Brilliance

Partly out of allegiance to Aaron Sorkin and partly because there wasn’t much else on, I tuned in last night to STUDIO 60. I watched most of the episode without much enthusiasm.

Why STUDIO 60…Why?

Last night STUDIO 60 returned to NBC with the first of its six remaining new episodes.  I was pretty vocal about my appreciation for STUDIO 60 early on in the season.  I enjoyed the glimpse behind the curtain of a major network TV show.  At times the show was a bit heavy handed and the […]

Studio 60/The Office Star Lucy Davis Weds a Niner

It looks like Dawn finally found her Tim. Or rather Lucy finally found her Owain. Lucy Davis, who I have adored since her role as Dawn Tinsley on the UK version of The Office, and now love as Lucy, a newbie writer on Studio 60, just married Owain Yeoman who many on you may recognize […]
