The Hungry and the Hunted
4 February 2021 | by studioATSee all my reviews

If you like Aaron Sorkin's whip smart bantering between characters than 'Sports Night' really is the show for you, because as there is a little less emphasis on plot, these moments really do take hold.

And it makes for excellent viewing.

I was especially pleased that the character of Jeremy was toned down a little, with that final scene being very powerful.
