Tomorrow night is a sad night for me, and I don’t say that often when it comes to a mere TV show. Tomorrow night TV3 airs the last episode of Aaron Sorkin’s next series after West Wing, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. Smart, funny, complex, well played and with characters than have wormed their way into my head in a way mere telly isn’t supposed to.
Anything that started this way by referencing Paddy Chayefsky and with one of the most explosive speeches I’ve ever seen on a TV show
And ended the first episode with this, referencing Gilbert & Sullivan, had me from hello.
This wouldn’t be such a big deal had NBC not cancelled the show after 1 series. They replaced it in its slot, in a way the fictional Wes Mendell would have found deliciously ironic, with The Real Wedding Crashers; a reality show based on the movie.
Tomorrow night is the last episode. Catch it when the inevitably re-run it – it’s well worth your while.
