Sports Night was a smart, fast, extremely well written show. It was similiar to other Aaron Sorkin shows in that the writing was quick, dry, and intelligent. I loved the pacing of the dialogue. It was a real loss that it was cancelled before it put in a few mor seasons so we could see it in re-runs.
Besides great writing, this show was blessed with strong actors who fortunately are finding success in other network shows.
My only beef with the show was the last couple of episoded were a bit pitiful as the likely cancellation was played out as a story line.
