Bravo!
15 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aaron and Thomas (and even Snuffy) back together again and creating another smart-funny-visually exciting show. Television is always better with Sorkin. The characters are compelling. And after the first appearances of Bradley Whitford and Matthew Perry you forget about their previous roles. DJ Hugley (I hope I have't misspelled his name) and Amanda Peet and Steven Weber are all excellent. And Judd Hirsch was brilliant as the beleaguered creator of Studio 60. I believe that this series should be a hit (if middle America is at all interested in what makes television run) Already some of the lines have stayed with me as was often the case on West Wing. Looking forward to this series.
