You Should Be Watching Newsroom

Newsroom is one of the best shows I've seen since The Wire.  I watched the first three episodes with Mrs. Foxtrot this weekend and we loved every minute.  Check out the trailer:

I watched several trailers on youtube to find one that does this show justice, but none of them conveyed the greatness of Newsroom.  In fact, the first episode of Newsroom is the BEST pilot I've ever seen.  By the end of the episode I knew the temperaments, emotions, and motives of all the characters and I knew what the show was all about.  In stark contrast, The Wire pilot is muddy, introduces a ton of characters that don't connect (in the pilot), and took me a few watches to actually enjoy the show. 

This is Jeff Daniel's finest hour, and it is hard for me to picture him driving around in a van that looks like a shaggy dog.  He plays the douchey, yet intelligent, newscaster, who is revamping his cable evening news show.  You'll see a few other faces like Slumdog Millionaire and Olivia Munn.  The acting is top notch all around and is bolstered by Sorkin's writing which is witty, fast paced, and tells a great story without any extra fluff.

I still think The Wire is the best television show ever made, but Newsroom might be a contender in my book.  After finishing the first three episodes I questioned why so many people waste time watching anything on the CW... HBO continues on making quality TV, and I highly recommend you check out Newsroom.
