It would seem Helaine and I are the only people to like Aaron Sorkin’a Newsroom on HBO. We watched two more episodes tonight. We are invested.
Aaron, don’t get cancelled like Studio 60.
Jeff Daniels is very good. We agree. Sam Waterston, as expected. Love him. Olivia Munn, who seemed miscast on The Daily Show, is excellent.
It’s not like any newsroom I’ve worked in. Yes, it looks like a newsroom and Will McAvoy’s IFB hangs over his collar, but most newsrooms, most jobs, aren’t dramatically stimulating every day. I couldn’t take that much drama.
McAvoy, who claims Republican roots is quite progressive.. . the new hip cover for liberal. I find myself sharing those sensibilities. This can’t be a hit in Mississippi.
We have two more to see to catch up. Watching shows in batches is the 21st Century method.
