"A Viper, a Ferret, and a Coyote Walk into a 'Studio'..."

Idiot critics, pay attention; this is what we've been trying to tell you.

By the end of last night's episode, it was clear that the use of "obvious" plot twists was a deliberate storytelling device, not the result of lazy writing. This wasn’t frat-house humor, it was closer to the plotlines of a Shakespeare comedy...

What I’ve come to notice with Studio 60 is that you can’t just watch one episode and be happy with it. The storylines are laid out to be enjoyed in a serial format, a cross between weekly or monthly written installments of novellas (something the NY Times Magazine has recently resurrected) and the individual acts of a play.

Yes! Exactly. That's it exactly.
