LOVEFiLM By Post

HBO presents a series from the fertile mind of Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul. Smart, topical, humorous and highly entertaining, The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional ACN Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others) and their news-division boss (Sam Waterston). Overcoming a tumultuous first day together ‚ climaxing in a newsflash that a BP oil rig has just exploded in the Gulf of Mexico ‚ the team sets out on a patriotic if quixotic mission to "do the news well" in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements.

I need to lay my cards on the table: I think the Newsroom is currently the best thing on TV. I don't think it quite matches up to the West Wing, in terms of plot or characters, but Sorkin's writing of sumptuous dialogue, his lifting of the curtain on the values of news production, and his insights into the tensions between liberals and conservatives in America make this compelling viewing.

I enjoyed the first season a lot but I think this second one is even better. By the end of the first season I was a bit worn out by the love triangles. In this series it is the triangulation of three news events which binds the series together. The main one is an American black op called "Genoa". The other two are Jim's trail of the Romney campaign and Maggie's disastrous trip to Africa. Tarantino-style, Sorkin traverses time, cutting into these stories in a non-linear way to show their impact on each other, the effects on the characters, and the implications for the network broadcasting Will McAvoy's show. It simultaneously puts the viewer ahead and behind of the game, depending whether Sorkin wants us to guess what has happened or to see how the characters uncover what we already know has gone on.

The other main reason I prefer this season is that the first one was dominated by five characters- Will, MacKenzie, Don, Jim and Maggie. Because of the familiarity built with these characters first time out, while their stories remain important, there is much more space to develop others. Personally I was delighted Neil, Dev Patel's character, and Sloan were given some great story lines, as well as some top comedy moments.

This was a great second helping of the Newsroom- script, acting, story-telling, and production were all top notch. I can't wait for thirds.

The first season of The Newsroom was a sublime and compelling adventure into the world of a fictitious US TV news desk - dealing with actual events and issues - with the benefit of hindsight. It was utterly brilliant (perhaps with the exception of the unfortunate, line toeing & gung-ho "we got him" Bin Laden episode - against the grain).

The second season does not disappoint - in fact it is probably even better. We go deeper into the character dramas, having our previous knowledge to build upon and deeper and more thoughtfully into the news issues. We meet some great new characters and Jane Fonda provides us with some more wonderful scenes.

We are left in no doubt as to Aaron Sorkin's political persuasions - which is fine by me as I consider him spot on (enjoyment of Bin Laden death excepted).

A superb series. Cannot wait until the third, fourth, fifth ....

A great second season of this terrific slow-burn show by Aaron Sorkin. The dialogue is superb, and the way the episodes shift around chronological time to tell the stories is really very clever and effective. Looking forward to Season 3!

Revel in the wit, slick pace and humanitarian fight to present real news by eliminating the soundbite dross which pervades the media. Brought to life through the brilliantly drawn characters of Aaron Sorkin (West Wing) and the career changing turns of new small screen 'stars' who have developed the initial promise shown in season 1 and flesh out their roles without losing any of the energy and charm of the first season.

fast paced u.s political satire .
hard hitting uncompromising on issues of the day .
falls short in trying to be everything to everyone , except republicans ,
whilst subject matter loses non u.s viewers , unlike west wing .

In terms of style, this series is very like the West Wing: lots of hard-hitting reality, some lovely comedic moments, and great insight into the world of television and news broadcasting. You can watch this series on whatever level you prefer - whether that be for pure entertainment or as commentary on society. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This season of The Newsroom was, again, excellent. The quick dialogue, topical storylines, and Jeff Daniels as the anchor man all makes a thoroughly enjoyable series. Another masterpiece from the pen of Aaron Sorkin. Looking forward to owning Season 3.

Well its not another West Wing - but quite why is hard to fathom. Maybe after The White House a TV station is small beer. Maybe we've all moved on. Maybe its not crafted as elegantly. In any event its Sorkin - sharp, poignant and funny - and he's always welcome in our house.
