Goofs

Tom tells his parents about the night Abbot and Costello wrote the famous comedy sketch "Who's on First?" If he was really such a fan, he would have known that although Abbott and Costello made the sketch famous, they did not write it. It was a version of an old vaudeville number that had been around for years. See more »

A 'developing' episode
29 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not the best episode of the show it does still have its moments, and it is almost as if Sorkin is using it as a way of fleshing out some of the characters.

So we get a Tom heavy story line, with him guiding his parents around the studio, and also setting up the 'brother at war' aspect that will become more prominent later.

We also see another side to Jordan, in the sense that she wants to fit in with other women. As other reviewers have said, this is a bit of a change to the character, but Amanda Peet plays it well.

It's also nice to see Simon being fleshed out in his story with Matt, and also Cal too.

All in all there's a lot going on in this episode, and while it's probably one you could skip if you wanted, it is useful because it establishes the cast a little bit more. All of these actors could carry their own show, but the fact that they are all in the same place makes 'Studio 60' all the more special.
