During a meeting, writers are debunking various Christmas traditions and beliefs. One of the writers refers to the "Immaculate Conception" as being the same as the "virgin birth." The "Immaculate Conception" is Catholic dogma that refers to the conception of Mary, not Christ. It claims that Mary was conceived without "Original Sin" and has nothing to do with the virgin birth.

Brilliant episode of a near perfect show
17 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

People even now moan and groan about 'Studio 60' and use it as an easy punchline. And even though I'm a huge fan i'll admit it wasn't perfect, it was still better than half the things on TV today, and in my opinion far superior to Sorkin's follow up 'The Newsroom'.

What seems to unite people though is that this Christmas episode of the show was great, and it at it's best.

And there's loads of reasons for that. The Matt and Danny relationship is at it's best and I loved the moments between Matt and Suzanne.

Yes, there's the Matt/Harriet drama, but that bubbles along throughout. For the most part here it walks the right side of the 'too much' line.

The end moment is brilliantly staged and written. It reminds us of how bad the situation was in New Orleans was at the time, but on a far smaller level how great Studio 60 could be.
