    The Newsroom on HBO

    Is anyone watching it?

    Into episode 3 or so and IMO it's gotten better

    Jeff Daniels is the Keith O character
    Emily Mortimer is his EP - like her

    Sam Waterston is the head of the news division

    real cutie is a middle level producer - John Gallagher Jr. - check him out

    Dev Patel - he was in Slumdog - is a junior guy

    yeah yeah it's schmaltzy liberal bullshit and there's lots of holes in it

    but it's good

    real good

    check it out

    It is good, & Jane Fomda is excellent playing against type as a manipulating female Murdoch.

    Some may be BS Chance, but not linking Scalia, & the Thomas' to the Koch Bros & Citizens United. I remember it being discussed on MS media outlets (NOT Fox, of course) that the 2 justices should have recused themselves.

    Quality of The Newsroom?

    Subject matter is interesting; but the holes include: weak female characters, a terrible, distracting romance between supporting figures (played out too long), and a lead anchor — played by the underappreciated Jeff Daniels — whose identification as a Republican voter leaves me wondering if series creator Aaron Sorkin may be fantasizing or is full of shit.

    Performances by Sam Waterston and guest Jane Fonda are most rewarding.

    It is one of my favorite new shows!


    All the performances are stunning. Olivia Munn and John Gallagher really shocked me.


    Jane Fonda and Sam Waterson need no explanation, CoolBlue nailed it.



    However, none of them touch the writing. I rewatched episodes and caught things I missed.... It's just a masterpiece.

    It took me until last week's episode to get fully invested in it. Liked the pilot, then slugged through the next two episodes and it finally clicked for me last week.

    I've seen the first two eps. Loved the pilot, felt the second ep was bogged down a bit. Glad to hear it's getting stronger - time to watch some more! I'm a huge Sorkin fan, so can't really resist anyway.

    For those of you who want Corporations out of politics: what will you do with shows like The Newsroom, clearly designed to promote the Democrat party in an election year?

    I have not seen it - just a 2-3 minute remote control play - saw Sigourney Weaver and couldn't help but think of Ridley - kept expecting a monster to jump out of her chest

    dude - so true - as an ND fan (not an alum but Irish/Catholic) I've seen the movie several times

    course Jeff D was not Dan Devine-like character but ................ it was terrific

    many people complain about feel good/schmaltz/happy ending stuff as in it's not "realistic" - well I for one think it is realistic and even when it isn't ........ I'm OK with it

    Re: The Newsroom on HBO

    I rewatched the premiere episode last night

    he's on the panel - mr. vanilla - saying nada

    then out of the blue he says how he REALLY feels

    sorta far fetched

    and we find out all of his co-workers loathe him

    now we're on episode 3-4 and he's a wonderful guy

    schmaltz

    but i like it

    i really like it

    emily mortimer is growing on me

    anyone see the last episode where she knows NOTHING about economics

    and needs to be taught

    pretty fucking funny

    and john gallagher is gorgeous and a good (if underutilized) character

    he is a regular - he reports to Emily who is the Exec Producer so I'm guessing he's the Producer of the show

    he's in sort of a love triangle .......

    Yeah, I caught that scene and was a little uncomfortable with it for probably the same reasons that you were.

    Can you imagine a real "Jeff Daniels" type character actually doing that?

    And what was up with the "visual" of the chick holding up the sign up the gallery?

    From his past? A romance? A regret?

    I'm just barely trying to get caught up with it, and didn't watch the first episode all the way through. Set the DVR and went to bed.

    A girl's gotta eat, and I need my beauty sleep.

    But now that I've read the reviews here from guys who's opinion that I respect, I'll dig into some more and come back to share my thought.

    Talented eye Candy in any given show is always a bonus!

    you have HBO ??? I thought you were crying poverty I love HBO btw

    Not a big Jeff Daniels fan - he's ok - sorta vanilla - everyman - dull - etc. - the role that sticks out for me is the chick flick where Debra Winger (his wife) is dying of cancer - with the famous older actress as the mom who screams in the hospital at everyone to get her daughter pain meds cuz she's in pain - with Jack Nicholson as the astronaut (player) she's fooling around with

    anyway jeff plays a guy "Flap" in the movie - professor who bones his students - he's a louse who eventually allows someone other than he to take care of the kids after debra winger dies in a sappy way

    whew

    as for the woman in the back with the signs

    THAT'S EMILY MORTIMER - his exec producer/ex lover from 3 years ago who is hired back AFTER he has that panel meltdown

    she wasn't really there - he just saw her - and she prompted him to be "him"

    does that help?

    and John Gallagher gives me a serious woodie but his character is a little weak

    and the blonde chick he sorta likes but is with the other producer is a major pain in the ass IMHO

    hope that helps

    beauty rest?

    Not since I kicked Corporate Walmart to the curb and joined the "corporate ranks" of management with an Energy Company who's services many of us rely upon everyday!

    But my home is still "out in the sticks" and even "basic cable w/internet" still costs me more than $100 a month via satellite. And because of work, and if I'm lucky I get to view maybe four days out of the month.

    Oh, I get it...you didn't want too much of your "gay to show."

    That's kind of "endearing."

    You know you could have just named the movie, and avoided any conjecture or judgement on my part.

    Yes, finally! And you accuse me of being winded.

    Yes, tremendously, and I'll look for the connection when I hopefully get to review my DVR this weekend.

    Um, actually at the end of Episode 1 we see that she WAS there. Why he kept seeing a different woman is a bit weird, but she was there and she was showing him the signs. And I didn't find his switch from vanilla to cutting criticism in any way unbelievable. He was clearly repressing because he didn't want the sort of attention speaking his mind would draw. And then he couldn't hold it anymore.

    Both Don and Jim look hot as those characters on the show but for some reason in real life look insane.



    I don't know if it is the camera lens or what but this show makes them look gorgeous. Olivia Munn looks effortlessly stunning on and off camera, of course.

    My favourite new show so far this season. "I Will Fix You" is my favourite episode. The dates he went on are hilarious.

    Comments below contain spoilers. Highlight to read.
    Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
    She's his conscience. In subsequent episodes, his ex and his boss provided more details about how he's such a nice guy before the big break up. The break up changed him into a rating chaser, who succeed by not offending anyone instead of being true to himself and what he believe him. It's the reason why the boss brought her back into his life.

    Financially, he's very well off so 250k is nothing to him. He's the number 2 news anchor on TV, earning around 11m a year. He took a major pay cut and new contract terms just so he can fire her when he want.

    really powerful episode

    will attacks a gay black teacher who is supporting Rick Santorum ........ solely because of his anti abortion stance

    will is seeing a psychiatrist as he hasn't been sleeping ............

    Jeff Daniels is fantastic in this episode

    some dumb interpersonal stuff doing on

    Olivia Munn is outstanding here as she confronts a Japanese spokesperson pertaining to the earthquake

    No real James Gallagher action though

    I was in a class where a professor "broke" that way, once. He'd been toeing the line the administration was urging for a long time, then finally decided the students should hear some reality. Everyone was all, "Where the frak did that come from?!"

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Well, shit... I have to agree with you again, chance. ( )

    For my money, "True Blood " / "The Newsroom" are the best two hours on television at the moment.

    I know many folks call "The Newsroom" leftist leaning clap trap, and that Sorkin's rapid fire (and brilliant, IMO) dialogue isn't for everyone, but for the life of me, I can't find many facts in the news portions of the show that are not accurate.

    Agree or disagree with the shows' "dogma", one would be hard pressed to find a more intelligent show on TV.

    (The episodes are so multi-layered they stand up to repeated viewings. Try that with "Blue Bloods" or any other nonsense on regular broadcast television)

    As for John Gallagher: He's cute, but he'd look a LOT hotter with my jizz dripping off his face on to his chest.

    (Wait... did I say that last part out loud ? )

    Okay cool. I was pretty sure she was really there but when you wrote the earlier post I thought I'd have to re-watch the pilot because I must have missed something.

    Found some time to get caught up with this show this weekend. Thank Gawd for DVR!

    m'kay.

    I freakin' LOVE this show!

    It's well written, there's an interesting and wonderful character dynamic (some of it cliche but fun, and somewhat expected), and its, just, well...great entertainment.

    At the very least it might make some viewers who wouldn't normally watch it but do because they want to get their money's worth out of HBO, actually think a little bit.

    While cynics like me would like to think that what this represents as something that's actually going on somewhere out here in the real world.

    It's fiction, it's drama, it's fun, and there's "eye candy."

    What more could we ask for in "premium cable?"
    Never regret anything, because in that moment it's exactly what you wanted.

    For my money, "True Blood " / "The Newsroom" are the best two hours on television at the moment.

    I know many folks call "The Newsroom" leftist leaning clap trap, and that Sorkin's rapid fire (and brilliant, IMO) dialogue isn't for everyone, but for the life of me, I can't find many facts in the news portions of the show that are not accurate.

    Agree or disagree with the shows' "dogma", one would be hard pressed to find a more intelligent show on TV.

    (The episodes are so multi-layered they stand up to repeated viewings. Try that with "Blue Bloods" or any other nonsense on regular broadcast television)

    As for John Gallagher: He's cute, but he'd look a LOT hotter with my jizz dripping off his face on to his chest.

    (Wait... did I say that last part out loud ? )
    you need to stop saying that

    since i officially love the show i've morphed into focusing on the parts i want them to eliminate

    like the blonde dopey (not really) sorta love interest of the object of your jizz dripping fantasy - she didn't know georgia the state from georgia the country? and is she really hot? and her bf the other EP I hate him

    sam waterson is so freaking good - his fight with olivia munn was sick - and her deal with the japanese was amazing

    but the jeff daniels - black gay teacher supporting santorum was crazy good - i've never seen the other guy before but he made me believe he was that guy not an actor - really good

    wish they would give cutie pie gallagher more to do and more screen time perhaps a shirtless shot - bottomless is ok too - it is hbo

    lochte just won a trials

    Re: The Newsroom on HBO

    Newsroom, now that characters have been developed, is getting different - still very good

    BTW this week Jeff Daniels was a guest on ESPN 1050AM/98.7FM in NYC - seems that he's a friend of Mike Lupica and an avid sportsman - really good interview and he legit seems like a good egg

    but i digress

    The show is really coming into its own. For me there are still huge credibility/plausibility gaps in matters of business goings on and more so interpersonal but here's a few items from this week

    We've learned that Will has battled depression, issues from his childhood, relationship issues - he sees a psychiatrist - very good character btw

    meanwhile he eats 2 pot brownies + vicodin - wasted - but has to address the nation in an emergency (bin laden announcement)

    meanwhile Jim (John Gallagher - still crazy cute but exceedingly and less plausibly dumb) is gonna break up with his gf because she said i love you - she's amazing btw - but he really digs the blonde from the office who's dating the other EP - who's a douche but growing on me

    anyway .......

    this episode was exceedingly sappy and moralistic with regard to OBL being killed - Sam W would not announce w/o 100% confirm - so people knew but couldn't report so they were able to tell individuals and "report" on a person to person basis

    am i making sense?

    meanwhile i love the olivia munn character who appears (much like Lloyd in entourage) to be growing as a character when maybe originally that was not the plan

    it's just the kind of show that you wanna watch despite its flaws

    and you sorta wish you were in the newsroom with them

    watch it if you haven't - worth it

    I was thinking the same thing! The show has definitely "jelled" for me and I'm even finding some emotional investment in the love triangle between cutie and the blonde (which was the primarily cutesy subplot that was giving me a toothache in episodes 2 and 3) They're no "Jim & Pam" but I like them.

    I loved the chemistry on display while the group was stuck on the runway. Nothing quite like a group of actors being forced to primarily sit still on a tiny set and making it WORK. They did and I'm BEHIND Olivia Munn's character now as a result.

    Watching it though, I can't shake Rush Limbaugh's criticism that it plays like someone looking back at all the things they WISHED they had said during an argument. I hate to admit it but he has a point there.

    Anyway, it's gone from a chore to a pleasure to watch and I really really like it. Did I mention I've had a girl crush on Emily Mortimer since MATCH POINT?

    Check out Political Animals, also a really good time!

In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them.

    two reasons - and I'll add a question

    1 - it's a POLITICAL show - about a cable network that is going with a new style - a real style of addressing POLITICAL issues
    2 - CE+P is generally a shit show with mostly negative energy - this provides a modest and necessary relief for a group that could use one IMO

    you'll notice that the people who stop by this thread enjoy the back/forth

    and the people who don't .........

    and lastly, why do you care? don't post if you don't like

    Kuli - you have 80,000 posts - you post more than anyone - one thread that doesn't interest you won't kill you

    back to the thread:

    I really enjoyed Dev Patel's girlfriend's character - her father died in 911 and her response to OBL getting caught and killed was not the same as everyone elses ............. she had mixed feelings as it brought back some very tough ones

    It's a political show and the thread is gossip about... the characters.

    Yeah, it belongs in entertainment.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons.

    Dev's gf's reaction was realistic.

    ***SPOILERISH

    I'm thinking that guy with Charlie in the previews talking about illegal taping will lead to Leona becoming an American Rupert Murcoch with the phone hacking scandal. Maybe Will or Charlie will blackmail Leona to keep working??

    I agree Chance the thread is fine where it is, after all, it does address the recent past, & I have a feeling we'll be in current events soon anyhow.

    This thread sounds just like the older women down at the coffee shop, gossipping about the latest soap opera.

    What does it have to do with politics? Does someone really think it's going to affect the elections?

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them.

    the "coming soon" stuff looks much grittier - the idea that Will could be fired for taking on the Koch Bros., Tea Party plus
    the Sam Waterson character is so good isn't he?
    the deep throat character intro was very cool this week

    It looks like fun, Chance. enjoying it more that TRUE BLOOD lately, that's for sure.

    Wonder who the Deep Throat character is in relation to Leona. Side hote, do you think Sorkin named Jane's character after La Helmsley, to accent her bitchiness?

    I love Waterston's Charlie. Always liked Sam as an actor, but his McCoy in L&O had become Johnnie One Note. This character keeps us on our toes, we never know what he'll do or say, & that makes for a great character for a great actor to work with

    Charlie's blow up at Olivia Munn after the Japanese thingy was classic - both of them were so dead on - was rooting for both sides

    Sam's role is a real step up from his "save our national parks" radio spots

    Helmsley has to be a shot

    Not a True Blood-er - my friends make fun of me because I've never gotten into it and they all love it

    I thought Will's "I'm wasted" was classic

    Will got the the pot head scene straight (!!) on. Been there, got the T shirt!

    I'm glad to see Sam away from hawking on TV too. Kept seeing his Bank Ameritrade or whatever it was ad. Between him & Regis/Kelly shilling for that bank, & Alec Baldwin for the credit card.....

    Tough episode - for me in that there was so much going on

    short version:

    ratings are slipping
    Will is in jeopardy if he doesn't pick up the #s - Casey Anthony story MUST be a focus
    everyone has an opinion
    they are hosting a Repub debate - and Will/Charlie are comfy with "trading" covering Casey story to keep the debate
    Will gives an exclusive interview story to the guy who Emily Mortimer cheated on him with
    Leona is setting up Will
    Charlie (Sam W) meets with Deep Throat - good character

    It's like it's a completely different show - as the characters are now developed and have ........ morphed - hehe
    still don't care for the sorta love/hate story with cutie Jim and the annoying blonde staffer
    this is a 2 part episode btw
    there should be a great Republican debate thing next week
    the olivia munn character wants time to do the debt ceiling story but gets pushed back - she's soooooooo good at making her case - she should be in CE+P - she's hot (for a woman)
    Will seems depressed the whole episode - his shrink is awesome btw - great character
    anthony wiener story comes up
    charlie meets with leona and advises her against firing will - great fucking scene
    much more going on but i will leave for others to fill in some blanks

    I love Jane Fonda in this part. She's a great actress in that, although we know she's the polar opposite of Leona, she's so damn believable. Comes by it naturally, since I remember being flabberegasted by Henry Fonda's villainy in ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA. He made a quite wonderful bad guy. I think it was the only time he played one.

    Hoping to see Reese fall flat on his ass. And more Jane/Sam W please!!

    The Mag/Jim/Sam (or whatever their names) storyline was so irritating and pathetic all along this season... really hope we're done with this shit next year, who needs such cheesy cliché 3way romance when the show has enough material to keep us watching?
    Loved the actor who plays McKenzy's ex, handsome !
