Follows fictional cable news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and his “News Night” staff at the fictional cable news channel UBS.
Somehow, mainstream media seems to think this show is "too didactic" - but that reeks to me of fear. Sorkin says exactly what people need to hear; it's time to step back, move forward, and let the professionals do their jobs. He's fantastic at portraying both sides to all key debates; I love the energy and direction of each season, so different and nuanced. A pleasure to watch.
Aaron Sorkin writes compelling characters and biting, fun, dialog for a witty, intellect filled delivery. His viewpoint on what a republican newscaster is is funny but whatever, i don't watch his shows for the politics I stay for the drama and the good writing. I am sure if you enjoyed west wing you'll enjoy newsroom.
