Must Watch: Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip (2006-2007)

Each month we take a look at a TV show that DEMANDS to be Binge Watched. This time out: Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip


Why? It’s the Aaron Sorkin show you’d probably never heard or (or at least if you have never watched).  It was cancelled after just one season and now sits in the bowls of TV history as a “What Could Have Been”.  So did it deserve to fail? Hell no.  Matthew Perry’s first show after Friends ended (and Sorkin’s follow up to the West Wing) it’s full of itself, over confident and at times over bearing.  But it’s also bloody amazing.  Ignore the reviews that say things like “A comedy show about a sketch-comedy show where humor is in very short supply” Studio 60 is the Sorkin show that critics seemed to rally against.  But actually it’s full of charm, humour and well drawn characters.  In fact it’s so good that, like Firefly and other one season wonders, it really deserved a second run.


How Many Episodes? 22 Episodes (1 Season)
Best Moment? To be fair it’s once again Sorkin’s writing that win’s the day here.
