      One of the best shows out there!

      Every so often a show comes along that makes you think, all while enjoying the show. Jeff Daniels and the cast of the Newsroom do just that. Their ability to take an event and report as objectively as possible what matters while all being pulled by their subjective biases makes you think what you would do in their situation. It is a constant nostalgia of remembering where you were when the real life stories that they report on in the show are portrayed and makes you remember your initial reactions to the news, your emotions and own biases and then your habitual reaction to looking to the news to tell you what is really going on. Now everyone including myself can disagree with the news and many bash it for its liberal or conservative siding but I do not envy the job of the news crews that work continually to try their best in most cases to be objective, accurate and helpful in their presentations. This show, while fictional, makes you understand that much more how hard it is to do this job without being a robot. An absolute must see show.

      The best written show in years

      I'm mezmerized by this show. It's likely the best written show in the last 15 years and that's no small statement considering the quality of content out of HBO and other cable channels. To enter the danger zone let me state that I'm politically an Independant and this show crosses political lines and reminds me what Republicans and Democrats used to represent. If you are strictly Conservative or hard line Liberal this might not be for you as it will make you think beyond talking points to real content. I'm amazed that the show incorporates actual events and the reasoning behind putting it out in a news show. It's a great dramatic show and worth every accolade and award it's received.

      Look, I love mindless fun (Cowboys and Aliens, Marvel's Avengers, etc) as much as the next guy. But the brain must be fed also. Sorkin has always resisted dumbing down his plots and his actors. They talk like we would all like too but seldom do. And as much as The West Wing was of its time, so is The Newsroom. While it probably helps if you lean center or a little left on politics, it is not necessary in order to enjoy. Sorkin is not afraid to call out liberal excesses when needed. Great stuff.

      This show is so good it renewed my faith in TV's ability to be a legitimate medium for change. Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston, and many others do an excellent job showing how television news could restored as an honest impartial source of relevant information. This show also helps illuminate the issues dragging our political system into the gutter. I highly recommend this to anyone, but especially to people going into the journalism industry.

      One of the best TV series I've ever seen

      It may take you 2 or 3 episodes to get into this series, but it is SO well worth it when you do. Wonderful, snappy dialog throughout, and some of the best characters I have ever seen on TV. The politics are especially interesting as the main character is an avowed republican, while most of the rest of the characters leans towards liberal or progressive. Superb acting throughout.

      I was fortunate enough to purchase this at a bargain price. I am rarely disappointed with Aaron Sorkin's works. I fell in love with "The West Wing" and will remain my favorite show of all time. "The Newsroom" was an incredible original idea from Sorkin that had the potential to have as long-lived a run as "The West Wing". Unfortunately, it could not gain much traction on HBO.

      "The Newsroom" is n excellent show. HBO has another hit on their hands. Too bad it is only going to run for 3 seasons. I love the relevant news stories that are addressed in season one. We as the audience are familiar with them, but we can see an interpretation of what happens behind the scenes and how people have to handle these situations.

      If you look at the underlying premise of the show, it challenges you to think outside the box of the status quo. In other words, if you have a certain political persuasion don't accept the "truth" because it is the message but look for the truth yourself. An important message in the day when we are constantly bombarded by media.
