Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

Warning: Spoilers ahead

It was a show behind a show. The series revolve around the lives of the cast and crew of a sketch comedy show. The show includes familiar names like Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet and Bradley Whitford. I wasn't familiar with the TV series but i figured it must be worthwhile watching. Well, okay. There was nothing else available as I've already watched everything else. He he.

It has comedy, romance and drama rolled into one. There were some dead spots within an episode but then something brilliant or funny or romantic will come up and you forget about it. Except for a few snippets, there isn't much shown about the actual show that is produced. In a way, it seems like you're cheated.

Currently, there is speculation that the series is not coming back for a 2nd season. With other contenders like CSI and Heroes, it is definitely going to give. Although it has its moments, it doesn't have the sustaining power of these two TV series and it'll be difficult to catch up.

Studio 60 started off great but then started declining by degrees and was lucky to make it through its entire 22 episodes of the first series.

There won't be a second series, NBC has dumped the official website and it now just produces a page not found message. Guess they not expecting big things on dvd
