Goofs

As Felicity Huffman is reading from the cue cards (filmed from behind the card holder) during last-minute rehearsal, she "reads": "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." The card holder then moves a card from front to back of a stack of three cards. The camera angle changes to the front of the cards, and only one card can be seen, rather than three. That card reads "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." -- the same words Felicity Huffman had just "read" from the card that was then moved to the back of the stack. See more »

Great Start
14 September 2006 | by mschmidt-7See all my reviews

I was a little worried that this show would fail to live up to its hype. After all, no other new show will have as much to live up to this fall. The show did not fail to please and this is the beginning of a very promising run. Fans of the West Wing will rejoice at the return of Sorkin to NBC primetime and long for the days of the great West Wing seasons. The cast is talented and deep. It would seem that there are half a dozen characters that could carry an entire episode (much like West Wing). I am looking forward to more great things but I am curious how the sketch comedy show will play out in the series. Will they show a full sketch from beginning to end? Would that hurt the dramatic nature of the show? Will "special guests" be a constant on a show that would need a host for each week's variety show (Felicity Huffman was the first)? These unanswered questions might be large considering they were not addressed on the pilot but I cannot wait to see how they are resolved.
