    Hmmm, looks like three double-alphas. Nice.
    Hate that yellow thing they've got going on "Sports Night", though. [​IMG]

    Hmmm... "SportsNight" says "The complete series plus pilot episodes". I wasn't aware "SportsNight" had an unaired pilot.

    It probably doesn't. I'm betting they're just referring to the first episode. Call my cynical, but I think it's just some marketing gimmick. It says it on Once and Again as well.
    Oh, and I like the yellow on Sports Night. [​IMG]

    I've never seen Sports Night (it was never brought into Singapore by the broadcasters). I don't have much idea what it's about, though it seems (I assume) to deal with sports broadcast journalists?
    should I buy it sight unseen? I am a huge fan of West Wing, and rather like Sorkin's other work in movies. is that good enough to take the risk?
    FWIW, I am a sports fan, mainly football (the real kind played with a round ball and feet only [​IMG] ) but have a passing interest in most other sports.

    Yee-Ming,

    Sports Night is more a comedy than The West Wing. Though this doesn't mean the show is short of dramatic moments. What I liked about it so much was the mix of drama and comedy.

    The dialogue is very stylized as you might expect from Aaron Sorkin, and the characters can be a little quirky.

    There's a good deal of sports talk in the show, but it is by no means loaded with it. Some of the plots involve sports players or sporting events in a limited capacity, but it's more about the production of a live TV program than the sports. I hate sports of all kinds, but I loved this show.

    thanks for all the feedback. sounds like I will buy this, even though it requires a bit of a leap of faith on my part.

    Anyone looking for a good pre-order price for Sports Night, check out DVDSoon.com. This can be had for $37.48 plus shipping (U.S. funds). The charge your credit card when the order is placed, but this is a lot cheaper than anywhere else I have seen. DVD Empire wants $63.99, not including shipping, for the same title.

    Yee-Ming,

    I don't know if you get Comedy Central but if you do they air Sports Night weekday except Friday. It's on here in North Carolina east coast USA at 3:30am and 10:30am Eastern Standard Time.

    It's a good show. I watched it during it's 2 year network run and hatted it ended. It's fast paced.
