Did You Know?


There are a number of set-dressing items from Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing (1999) on display in various parts of the Studio 60 set, including the "NO TOURS BEYOND THIS POINT" sign, a "Bartlet For America" poster, and the seal of the President of the United States on the walls in the studios, and the Pirates of Penzance poster on display in Matt Albie's office.

In many episodes the countdown clock in Matt's office jumps back and forth. Also, in many cases, after doing some math, it is obvious the clock is not accurate. See more »

The Wrap Party
24 October 2006 | by (Winter Park, Florida) – See all my reviews

As usual the "Sorkonian rhythm" is just amazing to me and yes I am claiming that name. I'll keep this short, but looking back to Sports Night, Aaron has always made me think. The first time I saw that kind of dialogue,it reminded me of a little show back in the mid 80's called moonlighting. That sit up and pay attention attitude of writing, and delivery of dialogue I just fell in love with.

I get to enjoy that in a whole new way with the Rhythm that only Aaron can write. Forget anyone else When you get Aaron and Tommy on a project it's like a bus that comes down the road that you can either get on and enjoy a ride like you will never ever have again in a lifetime, or stand in the way and let it just run you over! I found myself this evening after watching this episode getting online and looking up and reading about "The Hollywood 10" and reading the stories of each and every one of them and the hundreds of others that were blacklisted as well.

I very rarely get emotional over TV shows, but the shows that Aaron writes touch me in ways that I never knew were possible from a box that will display things like "Date my Mom" and "Pimp My Trike" I bow to the enlightening wit, drama, and even when it takes a slap to the face to see all sides of a story. Never ever stop what you are doing! But in closing I really have to ask myself what it must be like around the Shoe Money offices with people running around all day long telling each other "Hey don't forget I need to meet with the guy about the thing..." A personal thanks to Aaron and Tommy for Years of entertainment and for many more to come!
