The Newsroom is one of those shows that gets you hooked immediately. There are no bad guys. Everybody is flawed but really great at the same time. It beautifully captures the behind-the-camera drama that occurs in a newsroom coupled with a heart melting love story and additional comedy!

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 needs to go on a list of SHOWS THAT ENDED TOO SOON. The writing was excellent. Of course it helps that a person who considered himself Conservative can still be sane and not pander to the idea of AMERICAN EXEPTIONALISM and FUNDAMENTALIST religious nonscience. The ethics for our news programs seem to be slipping so far that the best news sources on TV today are on COMEDY CENTRAL, but this was another way to look back into the past and see some not quite current events after history has had a chance to form a more realistic opinion.

Great series, but the first season is by far the best.

Brilliant. The opening music tells you that this is a brilliant show. Just like in the film "Shawshank Redemption". Well written. Covers real news events and had a great back story. I beleive it has finished. A real shame.

I wish there were a real cable news show like this. I'm sad that the series has concluded. The writing and the acting are spot on.
If you haven't seen this show...you HAVE to start from the beginning. It's an amazing experience.

I love Sorkin's writing: his characters are always multidimensional, flawed but often with high standards for themselves and people around them. And certainly smart. The actors are fantastic, and they add tremendously to the script. I don't even know what else to say: simply another great creation from one of the best TV show writes ever!
