Parts are great because it is too talky, parts are below average because it is too talky.

Yo! HBO! Where's all the nudity!?!?

So the first half of next season will cover the election. If Romney wins it'll be, "We FAILED to inform the public." If Obama wins it'll be, "WE DID IT!!!"

Maybe they'll enter a parallel universe where the opposite candidate wins.

Until then, I submit More Munn...no not Mitt. For those of you criticizing Olivia, Leia off her!

I've loved the hell out of this show although I though it drooped for a few episodes in the middle. The finale left me feeling a little ambivalent, however. It felt like they left a lot of things hanging, and that many of the storylines starting season 2 seem like they'll be in exactly the same spot that they were in for all of season 1. So not much in the way of resolution, and I think that left me feeling a little bit dissatisfied. Not that I need everything to be wrapped in a nice little bow of course.

I felt the same way. It was just anti-climactic. It felt a little like the ending to show that wasn't going to return.

I thought the finale was some of Sorkin's worst work. Nothing happened, and what did happen was boring. All the resolutions for very deus ex machina. The show needs major work before season 2.

That scene with Maggie bringing in Founding Father quotes, one-by-one, handwritten, with the 'Eye of the Tig - errrr, Baba O'Reilly' montage!! music in the background was EYEROLLINGLY bad. Our simplest, DC ghetto, simpleton here on CP has more knowledge in their frontal context than ACN can evidently summon with their vast resources.

But then, Will is a stand-in for Sorkin who views any information conveyed electronically with a deep and abiding suspicion. So Maggie is probably jogging to the local library branch and requesting to see their Dewey card catalog for each of those 'choice' quotes.

That's the problem. Sorkin hates online everything, and he wants everyone to feel the same. His blogger trying to write a story about "trolling". Who the **** even wrote that? Awful. Sorkin gave quite a few interviews where he just came off as a pompous douchebag.

The west wing was great because it existed in a fake world and we could all get behind the characters. This show just serves to give him a platform to lecture on and on about how awful everyone not named "Aaron Sorkin" is.

That ending on the airplane a few episodes ago was as awkward as I've seen a TV show. Telling the pilot, telling the cops... It's like he still thinks he's writing for the 1950s.

Yeah, the trending discussion is whether Sorkin hates the Internet or Women more. I don't think he hates women. I think he's confounded by them, and as a 'genious' in the mold of he and Chuck Lorre, he turns confounded into condescension.

A long, but amusing litany of TN gripes from AVClub comments

Quote:
Things I’ve Learned from The Newsroom, Season 1:

I thought at first Will McAvoy killed himself because he just couldn’t take another moment with these people and for a moment, I envied his decision.

Though Maggie Jordon may not be the “average New York woman” she would pass for an average saucer-eyed elf, raised by Martians and forced to live in a box until ten minutes before this show began.

After watching the film Run Lola Run for the tenth time, MacKenzie McHale believes she can freeze time by screeching.

No John Gallagher, Jr., I don’t know why you’re here. From a Tony Award for Spring Awakening to playing Jim Halpert, er, Harper, if he was bitten by a radioactive beta male.

Anonymous internet trolls do it for the fame.

By episode 4, which somehow managed to exploit both Gabrielle Giffords and Bigfoot, I wanted to take a copy of Huckleberry Finn, write the word “TONE” on the front cover with a black magic marker and beat Aaron Sorkin until his hairplugs fell out.

The New York headquarters of Atlantis Cable News is located at 42nd Street and 6th Avenue in New York, the site of The Bank of America Tower.

Jane Fonda is amazing, but her character’s motivations are absolutely bananas. Apparently her loyalties to the Koch Brothers are somewhere between bought-and-paid-for trusted ally and amnesia patient.

No Olivia Munn, I don’t know why you’re here either.

Characters gossip about their love lives more than a 70’s naughty nurse movie but somehow manage to never TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT HOW THEY FEEL. And did I mention this story has covered a year and a half and they all work 20 feet from each other 16 hours a day?

Movies like Broadcast News inspired people to become real life TV journalists. The only thing The Newsroom might inspire is for Dev Patel to fire his agent. Sorkin, you had your hero call him “Punjab” for ****sakes, and without any consequences, I might add. Harold and Kumar would steal your second Prius and laugh at you all the way to White Castle.

At some point around episode three Sam Waterston got an eyebrow wrangler.

Shows on HBO with a one hour running time have a different pace than a network show at 42 minutes. The Sopranos and Game of Thrones use that extra time to dig deeper into character and plot, creating a hybrid of serialized novel and a feature film. The Newsroom uses this time for Jeff Daniels to fall down in his underpants.

If you have the opportunity to date beautiful news women, DON’T DO IT. No matter how tantalizing their breasts look in silk shirts, they’re all monsters who have no agency whatsoever and are relegated to screeching, manic trophies who never shut up and beat you moments after you wake from intensive care.

Women wear too many silk shirts for such a cold studio.

Don The Producer’s problem isn’t that he’s a good guy who’s been told he’s bad. The problem is he’s apparently never dated a human being before. You didn’t cry over your high school love as much as Don cries every episode. And hokey smokes is Thomas Sadoski a great actor, but these terrible scripts exist only in polar emotional extremes. He’s either the cynical “master of the dark arts” or a knuckle-biting spurned lover with nothing in between.

No Terry Crews, I don’t know why you’re here either.

Despite Will McAvoy’s only personality trait being one shared by Aaron Sorkin– a deep love of Broadway musicals, Will doesn’t know how to pronounce the name “Dulcinea.” Even though The Man of La Mancha has an entire song that sounds out her name ten times. It’s not “dulCINea,” Harry from Dumb and Dumber.

Sometimes you need multiple seasons stretched across several years to tell the epic, dumb love stories of the most unengaging, single-note characters on television.

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night? If you didn’t make curfew, raise your hand.” All of us that broke curfew kept our hands down — except B-Rush. He’d raise his hand and tell on himself. 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.

Liked the first episode. Liked that the love triangle is finally (and very quickly) over. Not sure I want to know what happened to Maggie, though (apparently we find out in episode 4, I have no idea what it is).
