Hipness stops where gender issues start
I like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. The show that the Hollywood establishment hates is fast and funny, with some wonderful characters and fine writing. Those characters are portrayed as very hip, too, but in tonight's episode, we found out just how hip they really are. Matthews and Harriet (played by the sublime Sarah Paulson) can't shake each other off, even though they broke up some time ago. And it turns out the core conflict is that...he hasn't proposed to her. Very hip and progressive, yes?
