Oh, I expected this to be good. But it was GOOD. But it truly was an amazing start to what I believe will be an amazing show. Studio 60 has been hyped, certainly, but I think it lives up to it. This episode barely lagged for a minute. The dialogue was snappy, the characters were interesting, and I think that quite a few conflicts have been adequately set up. I'm interested to see how Danny's drug problem may color the show in the coming episodes, and how the Christianity conflict between Harriet and Matt plays out. Plus, I wonder how Jordan will act in crunch time, if she'll stick to her values of quality if her job really does get put on the line. Plus, Matt and Danny's first exit from Studio 60 was ambiguous, and I'm very curious to hear more about it.
This is what a good drama should be. Interesting storylines, but still a little funny. Matthew Perry has always been excellent, and I know I'm going to love having him back on my television every week.
Can you tell I'm excited about this show? Because I am.
