  • I really like the irony that Sorkin put into this episode.

    You can't but notice the similarity of the ratings problem of both shows: both real and imaginery S60s are struggling with ratings and both networks push this topic very hard on them. Still on this line, I also liked the kind of confession that the main problem about ratings is the writing. Other real-world connection that I appreciated was Matthew Perry playing the addiction which was once true in his own life. What I liked:
    - Tom and Lucy's relationship - Jack trying to stop the news from publishing that fact that a celebrity is involved in the kidnap
    - Suzanne's talk to Matt: she was calm, she didn't push him, she just told him her experience and he knew he can't fool her
    - Danny confronting Matt about the pills

    What I didn't like: - the fight between Jordan and Danny and the fact that Danny doesn't take Jordan's advice (it's also out of their storyline because Danny fell in love with her because of her professional behaviour...) - it seemed that after the talk with both Danny and Suzanne, Matt took more pills
