I Don't Want to Know

Why have I stopped watching Studio 60? Why does 30 Rock make me uneasy? The characters seem too much like their creators, doing too much of what their creators do.

We all start from our own experience; it's where we go that matters. Where's the challenge, the discovery, in writing or following characters very much like ourselves, whose experience rarely departs from our own?

I stopped watching it too. It was one thing taking Sorkin's characters seriously when they were running the country. Quite another when they're writing/acting in a TV show.
