Sports Night

If you like Aaron Sorkin (writer of The West Wing), you would love Sports Night, his first TV series. It has his noted rapid dialogue and an amazingly fabulous cast, with, among many others, Josh Charles, Peter Krause, and Felicity Huffman (William H. Macy, her husband, shows up for several episodes). Although set in a a sports commentary studio (a la ESPN), you need have no interest in or knowledge about sports to enjoy this series. The characters are magnetic, and the stories range from touching to thought-provoking and never fail to entertain. It also has perfect theme music. You can stream it or buy it on DVD but that will cost you. It is being replayed now on FXX (Ch. 67 on Cox) or FXXHD (Ch. 1067 on Cox) with two shows a day (1-1:30 pm and 1:30-2 pm on Cox) every weekday. The shows play in order but it need not start with Season 1, Episode 1 to enjoy it. Just set your DVR, sit back, and smile.
