So the season is almost over, but have you been watching The Newsroom? Andrew and I have been obsessed since the opening scene of the first episode, which I think was the point, but it is so good! I'm glad HBO had the guts to be like, "hey, the news isn't really telling anyone the truth because there are powerful people in charge who have so much money and special interests, that they actually control what you get to hear." Also, "the USA isn't the greatest country in the world and if you still think we are, you're part of the problem." It was a big deal that they went after the Koch brothers in an episode, but I feel like as HBO, that was even pretty ballsy. Anyway, they are close to being caught up with the present, so I'm wondering how future seasons of the show are going to go. I predict that they'll do some flashing back - maybe to Mac in the middle east? What do you all think? Have you been watching it? Do you recommend the West Wing? I've been told I need to watch that if I like the Newsroom.
Well, check out the very first scene - watch the whole thing! Do it!
And then remember that you can't resist Sam Waterston in a bowtie!
Let me know what you think!
