  • THE FOCUS GROUP- Patience is a virtue.

    The 3rd episode of a series is important. It is were things begin to slow down. The Pilot is to intro duce you and the 2nd episode in to reel you in. Starting with the 3rd episode, the show starts to slow down and settle in. And this is exactly what "THE FOCUS GROUP" did. And it was still wonderful. I hear alot of people saying that they want to see the actual sketches and that the sketches aren't funny and they wouldnt watch it if Studio 60 was a real show. Thats the point. Sketch comedy is hard. And they are poking fun of SNL (even though it is on NBC). I mean come on they are NBS on the show. SNL has gotten worse and worse and worse over the years. And I personally think Sorkin is making fun of it right under NBC's nose. And that is the brilliance of Sorkin.
