The Newsroom Review

What Did You Think of The Newsroom?

HBO's latest Sunday night offering, The Newsroom, premiered this week, and I was excited to see Jeff Daniels as a prickly news anchor. In the pilot, we meet his character, Will McAvoy, who makes a controversial outburst and then finds his prime-time news show in a transition. We're then introduced to the members of his staff, including his new executive producer with whom he has a checkered past (Emily Mortimer). The first trailer was incredible, and I was hoping that Aaron Sorkin's writing would make it this Summer's must-see show, but I wasn't as hooked by the first episode as I thought I'd be. Still, I enjoyed the supporting cast of behind-the-scenes personalities, particularly Alison Pill, John Gallagher Jr., and Dev Patel. I'd love to hear what you thought, though — what's your first impression of The Newsroom?

I am watching and largely enjoying, but I wish the female characters were written with more dimension.  Fingers crossed they develop (definitely optimistic thanks to Allison Pill and Emily Mortimer!)...

I loved it! It made me realize just how much I miss Aaron Sorkin on weekly TV (and The West Wing)! So happy to have a good show on this Summer!

I expected it be awesome and it was. So glad Sorkin is back, great premise script and cast. JD, EM and SW were are perfect for their roles. This show should be around for long time.

I thought it was fantastic. I also loved the original trailer, and had high expectations - the show surpassed them for me. Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer were terrific - I really love seeing Sam Waterston back on TV. Supporting cast was funny and engaging. I thought the first scene was great, and by the end of the episode, I was eager to see where all of the story lines would go. I already set up a season pass!

I actually really loved! Aaron Sorkin can't not impress me! And I love the genius that gave Emily Mortimer that role because I don't feel she gets enough credit for her acting!
