    One of the best shows ever. Only 44 episodes or so. Damn shame.

    Who was hotter, Felicity Huffman or Sabrina Lloyd?

    Vote now, vote often.

    Me, I won't be able to sleep when pondering that question.

    Blame the crappy marketing and the idiots who thought shifting it up and down the lineup would be a good thing.
  7. God, I hated that show.

    IJAG weeps.

    Hmmm...maybe I can return my previous "complete series" I bought about 4 years ago and have yet to crack the plastic on and buy this instead. :D

    Equally important was that Aaron Sorkin was so immersed in "West Wing" and his other projects that he was spread too thin. He had an opportunity to move it to cable after the network took Sports Night off the schedule, but he didn't want to do it.

    Oh boy, all that mobile speech-making that masqueraded as dialogue. Now on DVD with <i>additional</i> commentary!

    Hey now, there was plenty of speechifying on that show that didn't involve pedeconferencing, including this gem from the end of episode two, <i>The Apology</i>:

    Dan Rydell: I have a younger brother named Sam. Sam's a genius. I mean, literally. As a kid, he tested off the charts. The first computer I ever had, he built from a kit he bought with money he earned tutoring other kids in math. He's energetic and articulate, curious and funny. A great source of pride to our parents. And there's no doubt that he'd be living a great life right now, except for that he's dead. Because when you're fourteen years old, all you ever really wanna be when you grow up is your sixteen-year-old brother. And in my case, that meant smoking a lot of dope. The day I went off to college was the day that Sam got his driver's license. And he celebrated by taking a drive with some of his friends. Drunk and high as a paper kite. He never saw the red light that he ran. And he probably never saw the eighteen-wheel truck that put him into the side of a brick bank, either.
    [long pause]
    Dan Rydell: That was eleven years ago tonight. And I just wanted to say... I'm sorry, Sam. You deserved better in my hands. And I apologize.
