Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
A chat for the series premiere. Warning to West Coast viewers: Story details may be discussed.
Any other entertainment talk is welcome here as well.
So far, so good with this show. I'll definitely be watching next week.
My impression of this show is that it's way too preachy. And I think Amanda Peet is terrible in this. And Sarah Paulsen's character is horribly written.
Of course the Dodger game was better, but the Dodger game was also better than any other Dodger game.
Sorkin always writes about the way people and the world should be (at least to him), instead of the way most people really are. But I'll give the show a few more episodes before making a determination for sure.
And it was pretty preachy. By that I mean that it was trying a bit too hard to be socially aware and provocative. The blatant "Network" reference -- even though they were acknowledging it -- went on way too long, to the point where for a few minutes I wished I was watching "Network" again instead.
On the other hand, it is just the pilot, and skimming over all the characters for first impressions is the main goal. I'm interested to see where it goes.
Who is Sara Paulson and why should I care about her?
Great cameo from the fat guy that is in all of the commercials.
Poor DL Hughley. How the mighty have fallen.
Perry and Whitford's characters are the strongest and will have to carry this deal.
(note made this comment first at Dodger Thoughts, but realized it prob fit better here).
