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.

Great insight into past major events of the decade. Perfect balance of sincerity and humour throughout the series. Striking personalities. Highly recommended!

A very intelligent show! It's really fast paced and a few years back so that they can use actually new stories. Unfortunately it is cut off after 3 season... but that is probably because it's too smart of the gen pop or no one has interest in the life of journalists, or maybe even conflicting views to the writers on current stories.

Another coup for HBO! The writing on this show is top-notch, the actors do such a good job you feel like they're real-life, and the story lines are amazingly true-to-life and often hysterically funny. I would pay for HBO just for this show alone (but happy that 'Games of Thrones' & 'True Detective' are there, too!) I understand why'Breaking Bad' swept the Emmys, but hope this show gets the recognition it deserves.

The Newsroom is a political drama about the inner/outer going of the news and the veil in front the American people. The writing is witty and show touches topics that are known as taboo or restricted by common television shows. Mostly though the show revolves around what actually happens when your watching the news in the backroom of the studio.

Wills first speech is one of the most truthful and daring pieces of writing I have ever heard on television.

Loved this show, from start to finish it has been fantastic, the drama, and the belief in journalisitic integrity really motivated me to keep watching. The premise that in this day and age we are often not informed, and the stations efforts to change that were an impressive struggle.

What a brilliant show! I didn't think i would like it,but then i watched it and i was amazed. The opening scene got me hooked. The characters are so interesting and yet normal. It really brings an interesting view point at news and the people behind its reporting. Easily one of my top 10 shows.

personally i was never one to be interested in thinking shows, or anything having to do with current affairs or politics- if i watch tv, i want it to be light lol. BUT with that being said, i was recommended this show by a friend and i must say it had be glued. they were able to pull me someone who's not usually into this genre into keeping up with the show until the end. They presented the stories in a very unique way which made it interesting to watch!

This is one of the few shows that you have to pay very close attention to 100% of the time or you might miss something. You won't necessarily get lost and not know what's going on but you will miss out on something clever that shouldn't be missed, and there's nothing less clever than not getting something clever. That's almost embarrassing. The dialogue is quick and witty, which is typical Aaron Sorkin, and the acting is good..? I always feel strange commenting on acting. The only time I notice the acting is if it's bad, which it's not here. Everybody does a good job. Oh, except maybe for Olivia Munn, but she's super hot and sorta new to acting so I give her a pass. If you've read negative reviews about this show you should disregard them and listen to me. Give it a shot. Oh wait, I don't think I actually said something review-ish. I love this show. I would have its babies.
