    Aaron Sorkin's 'Newsroom' on HBO

    Who watched?

  2. #2
    I did. Not bad.

    I did. Was OK but I don't think the fringe characters look very interesting.

    And English women annoy me.

    The West Wing was one of my all time favorite shows, but I really can't stand anything else Aaron Sorkin. His style can be so aggravating.

    I watched it. I thought is was good. A little hard to follow at times but good.

    My only issue is whenever I see Jeff Daniels I think of Harry Dunne. It is hard to take the guy seriously.

    Nope. Was watching "Falling Skies" off my DVR.

    It started off very well. Very engaging. Really like Jeff Daniels in the role. But it got pretty draggy and I had a hard time staying attentive as the hour went on. I'll give it another try for the next couople of weeks, but way too much dull dialogue.

    Plus.... the lead character is a neurotic NY Jets fan!! He should post here. He'd fit right in.

    1. Completely agree.

    2. I thought that was a nice touch.

    Question from the audience- "Do you consider yourself a Democrat, Republican, or Independent

    Will McAvoy (Daniel's character) - "I consider myself a New York Jets fan"

    I liked it. Not a big fan of Sorkin's politics but he is a talented writer.
