#6 Shows by Aaron Sorkin

Which brings me to Aaron Sorkin, the messiah of screenplay writing for the cultured nerd.  Whatever he writes, nerds will delight in.  No matter that the show happens to have the same premise as a much better show on a different network.  No matter that the show heavily features a tired and uninteresting romance that will not die no matter how much the audience wants it to. No matter that the show within the show isn't funny.  Nerds will watch it, and they will be sad yet relieved when it is cancelled.  Why?  A warm halo suffuses all that is Sorkin because all nerds remember when POTUS rode his bicycle into a tree, and the meaning of 'post hoc ergo propter hoc'.  Everything he touches is inherently awesome, therefore if he wrote it, it must be awesome.
