Sports Night is an intelligent comedy that rarely uses "slapstick" antics for a laugh, but relies instead on the clever, witty, rapid-fire dialogue. This show is quite a bit more light-hearted than West Wing, and doesn't delve into deep political topics, but it does often touch on a subject that will make you think, and quite possibly inspire you. It earned several Emmy nominations, and was declared by TV Guide as "Rookie of the Year" and "Best Show You're Not Watching".

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A SPORTS FAN TO LOVE THIS SHOW! I have friends who don't care for sports at all, but would absolutely never miss an episode. Sorkin masterfully integrates sports as a background, and weaves it into an occasional amusing subplot; but this show is about the relationships and interactions among the characters, not about the sports they cover.

And yet I don't recommend you buy this particular product (Season One). Why? Because for a few dollars more you can get the entire series (Seasons One and Two), and I can almost guarantee that when you're done with the first season you're going to want to watch the second one.

RATING/CONTENT: There's no rating in the product info, and I don't know what the TV people gave the show for rating/content, but here's my assessment:
--Violence: none, except when you get laughing so hard your sides hurt. TV-G
--Language: I can't specifically remember any swearing; if there is, it's certainly mild compared to many tv shows. There is some innuendo, however. TV-PG
--Sex: referenced in dialogue only, no graphic scenes at all; this show is about relationships, not sex, though some sexual references are made. Probably TV-PG, at worst TV-14

Have viewed just six episodes free with my Amazon Prime but now they've slapped a fee on viewing the first season so while happy with the series, unhappy with Amazon

Many reviewers hit the highlights of this show: witty, intelligent dialog; talented cast and well-developed characters; funny and substantial at the same time. It is still relevant today - I find myself repeating lines from this show often in my job. And it's true, you don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy it.

Specifically about the DVDs, I had the first set of DVDs and replaced them with the 10th anniversary edition. The director and actor commentaries, plus the other extras, made it worth it if you are a fan of this show.

Haven't seen Sports Night or any of Aaron Sorkin's other shows? Give this a try if you like The Good Wife (which also features Josh Charles), or if you roll your eyes at morning radio shows. Highly recommended.

Nice original show. One with a heart, script, and good cast of actors that have since gone on to some fame. When it aired originally there was no laugh track. Too bad this had been added in this version.

We were loving the show and watching a couple of episodes every night...

Then it was pulled from the Prime lineup. So sad. Guess I'll get the DVDs from the library to finish it.

Though somewhat of an unknown series, Sports Night was written by Aaron Sorkin, who went on to create The West Wing. Several of the actors from Sports Night went on to have roles in The West Wing, but what most clearly carried over is the writing and production style. It is clear that Sorkin honed his skills showcased in The West Wing in this show, which makes it very enjoyable to watch at the same time as it engages the viewer with great character development. Though the stories here may not always touch on issues as important as those dealt with on The West Wing, there are some good commentaries on our culture, specifically as it relates to the world of athletes and celebrities.

Definitely worth watching at least once, especially since it's available for free on Amazon Prime Video with a Prime membership!

This was fun to watch when it was on TV the first time but this time around you realized things you missed before. It was a great series and if you were a fan of Sports Center, you will really enjoy this.

written by aaron sorkin. the guy is brilliant. he also wrote west wing and an american president (movie). they too were excellent. sports night is funny (lots of sarcasm), well written, and if you like sports (don't have to) you will find this show well worth the time. it is excellent from th efirst episode.
