The Newsroom Premiere: What Did You Think?

by at . Comments

A day after The Newsroom premiered on HBO, most viewers fall on one of two sides. It's either...

... an example of Aaron Sorkin at his Aarok Sorkin-est, standing astride the highest horse possible and preaching to America about values, politics and tradition.


.... a case of brilliant writing by a scribe who pens dialogue like music and who isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

Too much talk of Sorkin this and Sorkin that. The premiere was good but I'm certainly not in love with it. Trying to be too stylish on the filming & too blunt with its tones.


I absolutely love this show, and felt like cheering right from the first scene. It's truly gratifying too to have a lead character that isn't immediately all that likeable. Someone who prefers truth to "nice" and who will openly point when the emperor has no clothes. Brilliant writing, combined with a stellar cast in a fast-paced background. What's not to like?
