...the very model...

How often does this happen to you?

About once a year, I find myself exposed to some rendition of Gilbert & Sullivan's "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General," and that's it for me for the week. It's in my head, breaking out of my voice box, hummed incessantly as I go about my business for about a week.

Last year it was in a Classics class I was TA'ing for at UConn.

This year it was on my replacement show for "The West Wing," "Studio 60."

On another note, good news: although "Studio 60," the only show I expect to watch on a regular basis (and am loving so far), doesn't even go on the air until an hour after my bedtime Monday nights, on weeks when I fall asleep on the couch and wake up 20 minutes into the show, I can catch the parts I missed the next day on NBC.com and don't have to wait for reruns months later.

I am the very model of a Sorkin-Schlamme show addict.

I know you're way busy but can you tell me a little about Studio 60? I've done some searches and I can't find a place where I can catch up to the current episode. I just watched one tonight (10/16) and even though I pretty much get the gist of things, I'm one of those people who wants to know the reasons for people's actions. If you can find it in your heart to take a few minutes out of your time to help me out, that would be peachy.
