It's time for another wildly contentious debate over the endlessly pointless topic of television. Now, I know you all think you've pretty well got me figured out by now, and that this topic can only be a chance for me to further bemoan the cancellation of Firefly. Well, yeah, I am irked by that, but the 'Best' televsion show to be cancelled too soon isn't Firefly.
It was Sports Night.
Having revisited the Sports Night Complete Series DVDs, I am once again amazed at what a witty, well paced, and poignant comedy series Sports Night was. Produced and written by the same team that brings you The West Wing, though not as mired in political liberal controversy, Sports Night was probably the best written sitcom to hit airwaves in quite some time, in a league both in humor and social relevance with All In The Family. If you've never seen the show, sign up for Netflix and rent the series. It's outstanding.
