I feel almost fortunate to have stumbled across this Gem of TV, with fantastic characters and strong witty dialogue that made me laugh aloud on several occasions. I tore through the season in mere days, enjoying each and every episode, without ever feeling fed up watching back to back episodes, like I do with so many other shows.

Well done Sorkin for another fine show, just a shame modern audiences have no clue what good quality TV is and Studio 60 had to come to a very premature end.

Incredible show, with a great ensemble cast, and a lot of nuanced writing and acting. I had read several comments about Matthew Perry's dramatic acting, but I only saw glimpses of that in Go On and decided that it was worth looking more into it. I came into Studio 60 to discover Perry, I ended up discovering many more impeccable actors. I also came to it by mistake - no one I know has ever mentioned it to me before - but it was a true discovery and delicacy, beginning to end. There's a bit of comedy, some drama, and a lot of real life unfolding in front of your eyes.
