I'm really getting frustrated with Studio 60. I desperately WANT the show to be good---I think the cast is generally terrific, although the Harriet character bugs me, but thus far the show has been nothing more than lots of pretty words. Sorkin's intensity of dialogue just works a lot better when talking about a pending nuclear crisis than whether or not to do product placement. And all the pretty words can't make up for lack of discernible plot. All the self-referential humor about the Eastern intellectuals is getting tiresome too. Hopefully they will get back to the basics and give the very interesting characters something correspondingly interesting to do.
After two days of nonstop skiing at Breckenridge, it's time to drag whats left of my legs to bed. Beaver Creek opens tomorrow, so hopefully there will be plenty of people to ply with my $16 martinis.
