TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, AND I GLOW: The good on tonight's Studio 60? Substantial, including, but not limited to, Sarah Paulson's impression of Holly Hunter, Matthew Perry's discussion of homoeroticism, every scene in which Steven Weber appears, and Rob Reiner as a rabbi! The not-so-good? As Kim pointed out last week, the sketches on the show within a show aren't working overly well (though showing us 30-second snippets rather than full sketches mitigates that), with Pimp My Trike and the inexplicable Commedia del'Arte sketch being low points, especially given that the latter was a major plot point, and a lecture on the importance of wearing seat belts? Seriously? However, the little joys are there--the expression on Peet's face when she realizes she's holding a glass of wine, and the interesting questions raised by Simon's "handoff" of the pretty girl to Tom. What'd y'all think?
