<I>Sports Night</I> Hits it Out of the Park

Ever notice how great things often happen when you're not trying quite so hard? Sports Night is one of those great things. Aaron Sorkin wasn't trying to wow us with social import (like on The West Wing) or culture commentary (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). He was just scripting sparkling dialogue for sparkling actors like Peter Krause (Dirty Sexy Money) and Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives). He was just showing authentic human behavior on a small scale in tight confines.

He was just creating an all-time gem.
