An incredible high-water point for TV drama,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Newsroom - Season 1 [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
My son bought this and lent it to us. I wasn't too enthusiastic so put off starting to watch it. My bad judgement. It is an astonishingly well-written (by Aaron Sorkin of "West Wing" fame), gripping series, with amazing performances by Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer and the whole cast.
The dialogue is fast and funny. How the actors learn it all and replay it so naturally is wonderful. By weavig the story around real news items Sorkin creates a completely immersive experience for the viewer.
Jeff Daniels just won an Emmy for this - totally deserved.
