Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

Genre: Drama, Comedy; Starring: Matthew Perry, Bradley Whitford; Series Premiere: 09/18/2006; Broadcaster: NBC; Status: In Season

Now that the frenzied hype/backlash cycle has passed, it’s possible to watch Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Aaron Sorkin’s failed dramatization of life at an SNL-style show, and see what could have, eventually, become a decent series. Except, yeah, the overbearing schmaltz is still there. EXTRAS Boring commentary and the remnants of a press kit, billed as an ”in-depth” look behind the scenes. Both are unfailingly cheerful, like viewing an ad for the Titanic’s deck chairs after they’ve already hit the ocean floor. C
