J.D. Salinger became an Aaron Sorkin hero.
Everything about the show's use of Salinger — still alive, well, and played memorably by Alan Arkin — was delightfully weird, from his hiding place in a tandem bike shop to his dream of producing a game show that he dubs "Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities, What Do They Know? Do They Know Things? Let's Find Out." The season's eighth episode, set on the launch of Salinger's project, turns into a dead-on parody of Aaron Sorkin shows, with walk-and-talks, monologues about the importance of television, and even a character (voiced by Tatiana Maslany) named Mia McKibbin who recites her resume at Todd and is sure to include Sorkin's favorite Gilbert & Sullivan lyric about being "never ever sick at sea."
