Storyline

A sequence of peccadilloes lands Tom (and Simon's jacket) in front of a Nevada judge, making this "a bad day that's about to get worse." for a variety of reasons. It's show day, so the studio heavies (plus a wealthy business partner and Tom-fan daughter) fly to Nevada to throw their weight around. Danny and Jack play dueling agendas with Jordan's career as subtext. Back in LA, Matt and Harriet deal with censorship, public remarks half-quoted, and the possibility of writing a new show that doesn't use Tom or Simon. Written by norcekri

A below average Studio 60 episode
18 September 2016 | by studioATSee all my reviews

When I do my yearly watch of the 'Studio 60' DVD the Nevada episodes are usually the ones I skip.

The reason for this is because they add very little to the story overall. You can skip them and it really makes no difference.

There are some nice moments in the episode, usually between Matt and Danny but the constant bashing of Christians or Matt and Harriet arguing about Harriet being a Christian does become a little tedious.

I thought Steven Weber gave a good performance as Jack, but this isn't one of the better episodes.

I'd have much preferred to see an episode where Danny is away and Matt has to cope with Ricky and Ron waiting for him to stuff up. Unfortunately we got this instead.
