With the exception of that one episode about the Tour de France, we haven’t done a lot of sports here on Giant Geek vs. Mega n00b. But a TV show about a SportsCenter-like show, written by “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin? Sign us up!
But wait, there’s more: Joining us for our introduction to “Sports Night” is Sorkin superfan Walt Mossberg — although he may be better known as the former Personal Technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal who co-founded AllThingsD and Recode, where Eric now works.
For the purposes of this discussion, we watched five episodes of “Sports Night,” chosen from across its two-year run on ABC. They are: S1E7, “Dear Louise”; S1E15, “Dana and the Deep Blue Sea”; S1E19, “Eli’s Coming”; S2E3, “Cliff Gardener”; and S2E11 “And the Cutman Cometh.”
When we recorded this podcast, those were all available on Hulu, but unfortunately they seem to have been taken off! To watch those five episodes, you can rent them for $1-2 apiece from Amazon, iTunes, Vudu and Google Play.
