Are those keepcases inside the box? Nice going, people
Hmmm, looks like three double-alphas. Nice.
Hate that yellow thing they've got going on "Sports Night", though.
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.
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 ) but have a passing interest in most other sports.
hopefully this means Home Improvement will follow soon.I hope so I wanna make BVHV rich
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.
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.
Scott, that is an insane deal! I currently have mine preordered from DDD for 56...but I may just have to cancel. Over 50% off!
I can't wait for Sports Night... ;-)
Neither can I...between that, FOTR:EE, and AOTC...I'm going insane with anticipation.
you gotta love the fact that Bestbuy.com has it's price set to $99.99 and they even say that the list price is $79.99 on the page.
