Studio 60: Pure Class

A few months ago I watched an episode of Studio 60 on television in the UK and I wasn't won over by it. In fact it was the only episode I watched and after it I wasn't surprised that the show was canned. Then iTunes came along and I decided that after watching South Park and Flintstones I would give something different a try and downloaded the Studio 60 Pilot, afterall I didn't bother with the West Wing until Season 3 and now I own all the box sets. So I sat down and without much hope of being entertained I watched Studio 60 one more time......then I downloaded the entire season! It is, quite frankly, the best show on television since the West Wing. The quality of writing is exceptional, as you would expect from Sorkin, and the characters are one's you can easily connect with. The season finale is stretched over 4 episodes and had me hooked from beginning to end.

There are of course places where the show moves slowly but what 22 season show doesn't have the odd episode like that. Considering the garbage on television that gets 9+ seasons, I'm thinking here of Big Brother, S60 deserves another chance. If NBC don't want it then Fox should pick it up. They made the mistake of not listening to the people and abandoning Futurama and look how that turned out. Listen to them now and give S60 another go.

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.

Flickr For iOS: Could Not Communicate With Server Fix

I've seen multiple reports on Google from people trying to login to Flickr through iOS 7 Settings and receiving the 'Could not communicate with server' login failure. I changed phones last week and received the same error message this morning. The fix that worked for me is:1. Go to Flickr through a desktop browser.  2. Go to the your profile image in the top right and click Settings. 3. In Your Account select the Sharing & Extending tab. 4. Revoke the iOS related Account Links. 5. Login again on your iPhone through Settings and you should now have access.
I hope this helps.
