A great episode
25 July 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

The brilliance of these early episodes of 'Studio 60' is quite astounding. From the quality of the acting by Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford, backed up by such a stellar ensemble cast, combined with the writing of Aaron Sorkin - this show was fantastic.

There are so many great scenes here, but the final sequence at the wrap party with 'Will you still love me?' playing is a personal highlight.

It's testament to both the writing and the acting that the dynamic between Matt and Danny feels so strong when you consider that this is only the third episode of the series.

I'm a huge 'Studio 60' fan, and this is one of my favourite episodes with good reason.
