The Newsroom
I apologize if it has been talked about here before, but is this show as good as the clips I have seen on youtube? The show appears to have some great in-your-face dialouge on provocative and modern topics.

I don't have HBO so I would consider getting first two seasons on blu Ray.

It is an amazing show, and I am eagerly awaiting season three.

RE: The Newsroom
I've (not completely legally) watched the first season. I liked it. I would buy it.

And from me, that is massive praise comparative to my usual assessment of things which is either 'meh' or 'It's shit'.

I liked SportsNight... That's the closest commentary I can make. I bet I would love The Newsroom but haven't been into watching shows the way I used to be

RE: The Newsroom
Its a little fake on the bipartisan attempt, like watching fox news pretend to include left views.
Or is it just impossible to make the right not seem insane.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: The Newsroom
Watched the first episode last night. Excellent as far as series shows go. Very impressed. Settling in for second show now.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
