5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Show You Never Watched 26 Sep 2004
Format:DVD
TV Guide voted it "The Best Show You're Not Watching" ("If they're not watching it, how do they know?" demanded Peter Krause, accepting the award.)
Sports Night was West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin's first venture into television. Its focus was a fictitious sports show, the struggling "Sports Night" on cable channel CFC ("A third-rate show on a fourth-rate network"), and the dramas lived out behind the scenes by the characters: Dan Rydell (Josh Charles, in one of the most marvellously complex and multi-faceted performances ever to grace the small screen) and Casey McCall (Peter Krause, now better known as Nate in Six Feet Under), the two handsome, charming, talented and hopelessly neurotic anchors; the producer, Dana Whitaker (Felicity Huffman), confident in her professional abilities but insecure in her personal life; associate producers Jeremy Goodwin (Joshua Malina, now to be seen in Sorkin's other show), geek extraordinaire, and his girlfriend, the forceful, opinionated Natalie Hurley (Sabrina Lloyd); and, overseeing it all with quiet dignity, veteran journalist, now managing editor, Isaac Jaffee (Robert Guillaume, known to a generation of viewers as "Benson", whose dry delivery makes his every utterance a joy, and whose mere presence lends the show gravitas). A critical success but a ratings failure, it lasted for a scant two seasons comprising 45 half-hour episodes (less commercials and credits, more like 22 minutes apiece). That was enough to gain it a small but dedicated audience, and a fanbase whose numbers are still growing. The release of this DVD boxed set has helped to bring Sports Night, never to date aired on UK TV, to a new and appreciative audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Preston Sturges and Frank Capra revisited 1 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
Prompted by the latest Aaron Sorkin offering now being shown on UK terrestrial TV - " Studio 60 Sunset Strip" - I bought the the complete set of "Sports Night" one of Sorkin's early ventures into tv drama series and haven't stopped laughing for three long nights whilst I watched the entire series 1 dvd.

The sharp, pacey dialogue just crackles with wit, humour and poignancy, and would have the likes of Preston Sturges and Frank Capra turning in their graves I; rollicking with laughter.

If you buy just one tv series dvd this year make it this one. Just why no British tv channel has snapped this up heaven only knows.

Utterly sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a (sports) night 25 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
after having stumbled across this program on freeview, i was completely blown away by the cleaver humour and the fabulous cast...never able to miss an episode...and something new to see in each no matter how many times to watch it.
Having peter and josh (casey and dan) to stare at all episodes also makes it throughly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sorkin 1 April 2010
By Fenny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I discovered Sports Night by accident on one of the digital channels whilst waiting for another show to come on. I'd recently become hooked on "The West Wing" and suddenly realised the reason I liked SN so much was that it had the same amazing quality of writing - and, on closer inspection, several of the same actors.

Set behind the scenes of a late night cable sports show, SN is a study of workplace relationships. It's a comedy (pity about the dreadful laugh track on the first few episodes), but like any of Sorkin's stuff, it can make you laugh, cry and learn something new within any episode.

The cast and crew are amazing and if you watch carefully, you'll see Mr Sorkin reprise his trademark role of "Man in Bar" from both "A Few Good Men" and "The American President".

It's a shame it's never been released in a R2 format, but if you've got a multi region DVD player, get it. It's definitely worth it. The Anniversary edition has additional commentaries by the cast and crew, but those are just the icing on the cake.
