"Studio 60" - And PeaceBang Yawned
I hate this kind of overwrought faux-Paddy Chayevsky kind of stuff.
I stopped watching "West Wing" when it got like this: all glossy and self-important and written as though manic, fast-talking people are, by definition, dramatically interesting. Every character a stereotype. Lots and lots of heavy-handed monologues.
My great joy tonight -- and a real luxury -- was to watch a few of last season's episodes of "Project Runway" and to see what the Santino thing was all about.
I don't think you can compare Santino's cheerful misanthropy with Jeffrey's truly vile, hateful malice. Also, Santino had loads of talent. Jeffrey, miniscule talent and major swelled head. As some wag suggested, that tattoo around his neck should read, "Squeeze here."
Based on the cutest Pet Smart commercial of all time, I am now dreaming about having a little smooth-headed dachsund. I would name him Tim Gunn and we would go for walks during which I would tell him to "make it work."
