HBO's The Newsroom
Anyone watch the pilot episode of the new Aaron Sorkin series on HBO Sunday night ? If you like the fast paced banter and wit of other Sorkin shows like The West Wing and Sports Night chances are you'll like this show about a news program trying to return to the Murrow/Cronkite type of journalism . The speech anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) gives in the beginning about America no longer being the greatest country in the world (in which he insults both left and right) to students at Northwestern sets the tone from the outset . HBO is showing the pilot free on hbo.com,utube ,iTunes ,and other online platforms if you don't have HBO.
