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.

Relive all the excitement of watching the news without any of the hassle of it being relevant or true.

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.

This is probably one of the most intelligent shows I have ever come across. It is something that I can watch, watch again and come in the next day in the office and talk about. It is cleverness served on a plate.

All I can say about this amazing show is - you have to watch it. The acting - Superb! The story lines - Superb! the lighting, editing, directing, everything about this show is top notch! It's the show I rave about to people who have no interest in my 'niche' viewing (horror, sci-fi etc). There are no big twists and blow outs in this, just perfectly paced dramatic stories with a few ongoing threads to tie the whole thing together. That said, many of the story lines are hard hitting and as they reflect directly modern news stories we have a line of contact with the on-screen themes. Well done absolutely everyone involved in this show - you nailed it.

One of the best programs ever! If you liked the West Wing, you'll love The Newsroom. It's superb, the writing, the cast, production values, everything and everyone isat the top of their game. It's also so informative in an entertaining way. Just watch for Jeff Daniels incredible acting but the entire cast is pitch perfect. Wow!

Oh so good! This is TV at it's finest. The dialog is fast-paced and quick-witted. Brilliant acting combined with interesting and thought-provoking story-lines makes this an award winning show. It tries not to be biased, but it's fictional, so put your personal political views aside and enjoy the best tv has to offer right now.

TV at it's finest.
Intelligent and witty; truly great writing. Dramatic, funny and thought-provoking.

I'm so disappointed that it's ending so soon. It's the best show on TV; I can't recommend it enough.
