Trivia

The tapes and decks used on the show are U-Matic (aka 3/4") format, which, in the late '90s, would have been quite outdated. The standard they would have likely used at the time would have been Betacam. The U-Matic equipment, which looks very much alike the Betacam equipment, would have been available far more cheaply than Betacam gear, especially for use as a prop. See more »

one of the best TV shows ever
11 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Too bad we can't rate TV shows on IMDB, eh? I wonder what this one would get; I'm sure it would be very high.

Like practically everyone else, it seems, I ran across SN after it had been canceled and was in reruns on cable. It took about 15 seconds to fascinate me, because it was obviously a show about a sports show that somehow wasn't about sports (which naturally made me wonder what it _was_ about), and because the writing was so excellent. Oh, and the acting was good too ;-).

Given all the comments already posted, there seems to be nothing left to say about this program so I'll close by ranking it alongside Babylon 5 and Northern Exposure as one of my all-time favorite shows ever aired on television (the similarities to NE are possibly worth exploring). Really enjoyable stuff; terrible that it only lasted such a short time.
