  • Shame Xmas comes but once a year

    I've been tuning in each week to Studio 60 in the hope that it would reach the heights that its cast and writer deserve. I only realised this afternoon that it's getting there because I woke up this morning wanting to see the episode again! So I hit play on my PVR and laughed. A lot. It is getting there. I also realised that finally everyone is getting some spotlight as opposed to early in the season when things were only interesting when Matt and Danny were on the screen

    I love the fact that Matt the non-Christian is trying to get everyone else into the spirit of Xmas, a position I frequently find myself in. I love Danny admitting to Jordan how he feels about her. In an ensemble cast, this cannot be classified as shark-jumping in my opinion, contrary to some other people's belief. I love Jack's character showing some heart and standing up for his beliefs. And I love Cal trying to open a coconut!

    So many great lines in this episode, but my faves(abridged)...

    Matt (to Danny and Cal) - I'm the miracle on Sunset Strip, and you are, you know... two other guys.

    Matt - Shaved coconuts for the snow, AND they're indigenous to LA.
    Danny - Not they're not
    Matt - They grow on palm trees
    Danny - Not ours
    Matt - What do ours do?
    Danny - Nothing!

    I want more episodes like this please!!!
