      If you like captivating writing & great characters that are expertly acted & performed, then "The Newsroom" is what you want. Created and written by Aaron Sorkin and his great staff, it's another hit in the vein of "The West Wing" -- a somewhat utopian view presenting brilliant people in a job where we would hope to have them, but real life never achieves. If there were a network like this (and people actually watched it), we'd all be smarter. We would value intelligent discourse instead of a flashy sound bite. TMZ wouldn't be syndicated on 14,000 channels. And we sure wouldn't know anyone named Kardashian. But I digress. Great writing. Superb acting from a deep cast. Compelling stories. Top notch filming & presentation. I wish it had gone on beyond 3 seasons. Enjoy!!!

      This is one of those "love it Or hate it" series. Speaking for myself, it is well written, produced, and has great actors. I got hooked from the beginning, but it looks like after Season 3, they (HBO) is pulling the plug. This despite the fact Jeff Daniels won the Emmy for best actor. So for now I can enjoy Seasons 1& 2 while waiting for 3 to start airing this fall.

      this series gets things going in the first 4 minutes . reality check at the door . very good inside look at news and who owns it . the interaction and personal lives collide with just the right oomph to keep you wanting to continue watching each episode .

      Newsroom Season 2 is a roller-coaster ride, very similar to Season 1. One, central story is at the heart of the entire season as other, personal stories unfold. The dialogue is as rapid-fire as one would expect from Aaron Sorkin, with enough asides and oblique references to make the second and third viewing engaging and fun. Highly recommend!

      This series blends the humor of shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation with the drama of real events that took place in the news several years ago. You also get attached to the characters and caught up in there life. Its a good series. We received Season One for a present and liked it so much we bought Season Two.

      I'm a sucker for anything Aaron Sorkin. That said, this season parallels the quality of season 1, but starts off lightly confusing. They feed you the story lightly backward (ala "Damages") and eventually catch you up. If you enjoyed season 1, bring it on... If you didn't watch season 1, why are you here?

      Another Stellar Season

      As a longtime Aaron Sorkin fan, I'm totally biased toward THE NEWSROOM, and I found Season Two even more entertaining that Season One. No spoilers, but the arc this season is far more engrossing and personal. It's a shame that Season 3 will wrap up the series because Season Two was a home run.

      The Newsroom is another excellent show by Aaron Sorkin, showcasing the acting talents of Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn, Sam Waterston, Allison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., and Jane Fonda, among so many others! My only disappointment is that it ended with the third season.
