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!!!
