Sports Night: Season 2

Season 2 of this series introduces some more arcs for the characters, some darker like Dan’s depression and some just a bit stupid like Dana’s insistence that Casey see other women before they date. To be honest, none of these really seem to go anywhere probably due to Aaron Sorkin’s focus shifting to something called The West Wing.

The 22 minute episodes continue to hamper the plots, with barely enough time for a main plot, let alone introducing elements of arc. However the acting and writing are still superb enough that I’d watch them just babbling about baseball all day. The direction is a little less strained and the awful laugh track seems to have disappeared! Such a shame this series didn’t have longer each episode and a longer run, but if it’s sacrifice allowed for The West Wing, I’m not going to sulk for long.
