The same selection committee that brought you Freaks & Geeks in 2010 has decided on our first pick for the New Year.
Sports Night is an Aaron Sorkin comedy ran for two seasons from 1998-2000, and starred Felicity Huffman (Despearate Housewives), Peter Krause (Six Feet Under), Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Sabrina Lloyd (Numb3rs) and the great Robert Guillaume (Benson).
If you're concerned that you couldn't possibly be interested because you're not a sports fan, fear not. This is a show about characters, and while yes, they live in and around the world of sports, knowledge or interest in such is not a requirement to enjoy this excellent series.
As the commercial-free episodes run a scant 20-odd minutes, we expect to be able to burn through a good chunk each night. We're anticipating a 6-8 week run for the series depending on the number watched nightly.
We hope to see you on Wednesdays!
