Newsroom. Anyone watching?

First episode looks promising. I love excellent TV writing.

For once I agree with you on something. I do not enjoy his style of writing.

HBO usually gets out in front of things. They also seem more likely to give things time based on their investments. I was pleasantly surprised to see that news though didn't expect it so soon.

QUICK! Somebody do a Gilbert & Sullivan parody!

Also, the first episode of Newsroom was pretty bad. I've heard the second episode is even worse. I can't wait to watch it all!!!

I thought the first one was pretty good, but yeah, the second was decidedly less so.

'Less so' meaning 'too Sorkin-ey' or just plain blah?

Blah, weak story, poor direction, acting was sub par. First episode was great in those respects.

I thought it was ok last night, too much propaganda to be good. Much better than the second episode, but still not as good as the first one.

Agreed, was better.

Why do you say propaganda? Do you not think news organizations such as this aren't basically run by big business?

I may like this show alright but I haven't watched a cable news channel in years.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

I am an anti tea party independent who leans slightly right, although moving left more and more. About half of the show last night was talking about how dumb the tea party is and how their elected officials are a threat to our country. I agree with most of the sentiment, but I don't need to have politics thrown in my face for an hour when watching a HBO drama series.

I get that some of it is realistic in that all but one cable news show leans way left. The "news show" stated that they aren't going to push an agenda, but instead focus solely on the issues. That this "news show" is above all of that and the new direction is concentrating on the middle. Clearly over the 6-10 months in 2010 that the show covered there would be some things to criticize the left for, but all they did was pump anti right messages all night. It was the exact opposite of concentrating on the middle. Keith Olberman might as well have been the news anchor last night.

Although theoretically I agree with what you're saying it's becoming harder and harder not to see that this "tea party" movement is in fact a real threat to the country's liberties.

So much of a threat that even Republicans all over the spectrum have no realistic outlook towards future that is viable. Many are trying to voice that but don't want to come out as "pro-Obama" or something....even though the tea party is an issue that doesn't even involve Democrats.

I'll agree though that I find it a bit hard to believe that Jeff Daniels character is Republican.
