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.

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.

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.

Typical sorkin show - simply as good as it gets...

it´s the last of a long series of high quality shows like the west wing and 30 rock... to bad it´s concluded now after 3 seasons. but all good things come to an ending some time.

let´s hope for a new show to meet those standards

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

A excellent portrayal of what it takes to bring truth in reporting the news to air ! When should a a news program report what may or may not be the facts on am incident that occurs , and the responsibility for airing and reporting , what has actually & factually occurred: not just the desire to be the first to broadcast what may or may not be the true stories factual account of the event! Incredible performances by a excellent cast portraying the Newsroom crew! Jeff Daniels at his best but all are just top notch !

Best Drama ever!!!
This fast paced rhythmic drama should only be viewed without interruption, it's like viewing a mini movie, worth savoring every moment.
Unfortunately this is the last season, to bad we have to wait for the last few episodes.
I read a comment recently that sums up the impact this show has, it simply said, "The Newsroom" should be set as a minimum standard to be met, by other programs.
