The Most Honest Three & A Half Mins Of TV Ever. Hmm...
Written by the always brilliant Aaron Sorkin, Newsroom is HBO's latest and possibly most controversial show. I'm only a few episodes in, but I'm definitely hooked. I love the fact that Jeff Daniels, the same shmuck who played Harry in Dumb and Dumber, is now ripping it up as a take-no-crap news anchor of note, Will Macavoy. It's almost on par with what Bryan Cranston did going from Hal, the goofy dad in Malcolm In The Middle to Walter White, the shit-kicking meth cook in Breaking Bad. Great characters. Great writing. Great TV. Although for some reason, some people in the US seem to be on the fence about Newsroom. Guess it's hard staring into the mirror sometimes.
