Trivia

In the commentary track included on the DVD, Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme reveal that Bradley Whitford's scenes in the pilot were shot while he was still finishing up work on the final season of The West Wing (1999) (hence his absence in two of the final three episodes of "The West Wing"). Schlamme also says that he, Whitford and other casting staff made conscious, deliberate effort to help Whitford create an entirely new character and 'check' himself from employing as few of the mannerisms as possible on which he relied in the portrayal of his longtime "The West Wing" character Josh Lyman.

Has there ever been a better TV pilot that than of 'Studio 60'? In my opinion no.

It sparkles. Aaron Sorkin's writing is fantastic throughout and every character we are introduced to makes an instant impression, with for me Amanda Peet and Steven Weber being two stand-outs.

Yes, it's preachy, but isn't all Sorkin work? The fact of the matter is he's an excellent storyteller.

It was very brave to start a new TV series with Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford as leads and introduce them midway through, but once we've met them we love them. Their chemistry would be one of the few consistent plus points about the show.

I don't think 'Studio 60' ever came close to beating this episode, but what an episode it was.
