  1. The producers definitely do not know what they want; the best episodes are worse than West Wing season 7 worst episodes. The actors are OK; the story ? they want political or behind the scene expose the secrets sort of documentary drama. It seemed that in the end they are not sure.

  2. Most of the reviews written so far have been written by fans of this show; I suppose every show must have at least a few fans. I thought I was going to be a fan–this was my most anticipated new show of the 06/07 season, as I had loved Sports Night and liked the Sorkin years of The West Wing, and this show had a great cast and a gorgeous set. But this show was truly awful.

    In my experience, people react negatively to negative reviews on Amazon and any Sorkin fan who happened to miss seeing Studio 60 thus far will be inclined to discount this review. But please realize this is NOT one of the cancellation tragedies (critical darlings, cult favorites, excellent shows that never got the ratings they deserved (and needed), such as Arrested Development and Veronica Mars). This show was not just low-rated but pretty much universely critically reviled, in my opinion rightly. So before you spend your money, check out some reviews–there are plenty of Studio 60 reviews still on-line that describe its cringeworthy awfulness far more articulately than I can.

  3. I was a fan of Sports Night and was sorry to see it go. It was a thrill to watch the hyper-witty dialog go right up to the edge of “too much”, but never quite cross the line. It was truly well done and enjoyable to watch.

    Then came The West Wing, which never quite did it for me, because it DID stray over that line frequently, and was, quite frankly, a bit heavy handed. But it had a great cast, you have to admit.

    Then came “Studio 60.” When I watched the thing, my response was, “Ugh, this is really awful.” I had a clear picture of who might be able to enjoy the non-stop, zing-zang-zoom, supercillious, and ultimately, patronizing dialog of this show: mediocre intellects who think they are REALLY REALLY smart and, almost by definition, lament how “dumb” everybody else is.

    I knew even before I read them what many of the reviews here would say– “Mom and Pop America are just too dumb to GET this super-smart show.”

    Please. This show had all the subtlety of a sledge-hammer. I’m pretty sure just about anybody could “get” Studio 60, as it was so heavy-handed one could hardly escape its point of the moment.

    So, yes, I’m one of those dummies who just couldn’t wrap his little mind around this Leviathan of a television program. Hopefully, this DVD set will provide intellectual succor for those of you who suffered most from this show’s cancellation.

  4. Lenta muy lenta, no llegó a convencerme. Si me hubiera fijado que la sacaron del aire no la hubiera comprado

  5. My God why did it take so long for this show to be permanently canceled? Truly unwatchable. (I gave it 3 stars b/c I can’t vouch for the quality of the dvds.)
