Is anyone else watching (and loving) The Newsroom? This show is just magnificent. The typical Aaron Sorkin dialogue that plays like verbal ping-pong, the character dynamics, all of it. It’s witty and funny and topical, and without giving anything away I was moved to tears at the end of the 4th episode. The Newsroom makes me wish I’d actually used my degree in Journalism in any meaningful way (and, also, that I had paid attention to The West Wing when it was on). And yes, I understand that the show is highly stylized and the odds of me landing a job at a prestigious news show in the biggest media hub in the world were non-existent, but still. I am completely in love with the whole thing. There isn’t a single character who is not charming beyond belief, and if we’re being honest, I love the retroactive ass-kicking Sorkin is giving the Tea Party movement. If you’re not watching yet, do it. Then come back and thank me.
