Alec Robbins (Mr. Boop, @alecrobbins) walks and talks the lads through the esteemed halls of the Paris Opera House of American Television™ that is Aaron Sorkin’s most notorious flop: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Topics include the racism of the mid-2000s, the surreality of the sketches, and the endlessly watchable nature of this truly calamitous foray into the writing process behind the world’s most controversial sketch: “Crazy Christians.”
