The Newsroom (HBO Show)

Just saw the pilot tonight. I never watched West Wing, but this seems like another great show by Aaron Sorkin.

Definitely worth watching.


Imagine the complete polar opposite of Anchorman, but just as awesome.

For those too lazy to download it, HBO has so graciously provided the pilot on Youtube.

Loved the West Wing; it had some fantastic writers and, for a political drama, it often managed to keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. Think I may have to check out this new series.

Just finished watching the pilot episode. As I'd expect from a Sorkin production, the writing was quick and witty. The basis of this episode is kinda the plot from The West Wing's pilot, just in a different setting. That said, it seemed to work and has set the tone for at least the first season. I'm looking forward to the rest!

The pilot was one of the best hours of TV you could watch in recent years. Another half hour (and there could've been) and it would've been a GREAT movie.

Episode 2 wasn't as entertaining but still very good.

That four-way interview about SB1070 was sooo painful to watch.

Good episode, though!

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Just watched it out of curiosity, really liking it.

Feels almost like a well-orchestrated Japanese drama, but not as fucked up.

Dan Rather did a review of the 3rd Episode, and has stated that it is something ‘Every American Should See and Ponder’

He's been doing reviews for Gawker for every episode, and ya... there are some spoilers, so if you haven't seen it yet, I would wait.

It was an amazing episode, touched on some great points about how our news is run.

Spoiler!

Just finished watching ep3. Great fucking episode. For those of you who haven't worked in broadcasting/media, it's absolutely true how much bias gets put into each segment that goes on air. It's nice to see a show actually take on a topic like that.

This show wouldn't fly if it were on basic cable.

I find Olivia Munn so much hotter now. I didn't find her particularly attractive before. Must be the news anchor thing...the "Soledad O'Brien Effect".

I think I've found my new favourite TV series. This really makes me want to go back through my old West Wing DVD's and watch 'em all again.

I've never actually watched an episode of West Wing. I only know Aaron Sorkin from The Social Network - and I figured if he can make Facebook interesting, this show must be good as well.

I'm on the fence with this show. Some parts are great when centred around politics, and the newsroom. But the minute the Maggie 3-way love triangle comes on I zone out, it's a terrible story line that needs to get removed if this show continues. It just drags the show down every time I find.

I feel exactly the same way, but honestly the last 7 minutes of this past week's episode was some of the best fucking television I've ever seen EVER.
