All I really have to say is the two main women on the show, Emily Mortimer and Allison Pill, are really loud, incompetent, and in raving, emotional hysterics this entire episode, while their men regard them with patient stoicness. World of Sorkin.

Olivia Munn debuted in this episode so I'll let her Twitter break the news:




EW: (insidetv.ew.com) True Blood also renewed for another season.

HBO current policy seems to be to immediately renew any series for a second season, baring a disaster. Helps convince people it's worth jumping in on, because it'll be around for a while.

(I thought she was in about 2 seconds of the premiere? Not enough to know that it was actually her, enough to pick up a paycheck.)

Jeremy, on Dana, from Sports Night: "The result is an irresistable combination of brilliance inside the office, and something a little less than brilliance anywhere outside of it." Yup, that's what Aaron Sorkin likes, or at least what he likes to write, when it comes to women.

A lot of this felt like repurposed bits and pieces of SN, with the disastrous immigration segment being The Cut Man 2.0. While that was rather ridiculous--of course there will be plenty of experts available on short notice, because both sides want their spin out there and there are always Congressmembers looking for airtime, and if all else fails the Heritage Foundation will have someone for you--it was enjoyable enough. I'm such a SN mark that I marked hard when Maggie said "good show".

Happy it's been renewed.

Just know it is awesome. I don't know how many people watched it here, but if the 2nd season of Drawn Together discs is as funny as the first I'd call that a must-buy.
