Aaron Sorkin opens his show with a monologue about how watered down and bad TV has become. Like that monologue, the whole season of Studio 60 is preachy, unfunny, and completely unselfaware.

We live in a golden age of television, so it's hard to watch Sorkin tell us that everything is bad when we could be watching House of Cards or Deadwood or 30 Rock for crissakes, the perfect version of the crappy thing he did. But the biggest problem is the way women and relationships with women are portrayed. Caitlin Gill, always ready to come on and share her righteous fury with us, has a few things to say about that.
