Been watching the newsroom's new season. First episode made a quick dig at SOPA which I enjoyed as they showed it EXACTLY for what it is. But it continued off pretty well from last season, though the opening obviously is further down the road since Will's being interviewed by lawyers about spoilerific stuff.
People give this show a bum rep, but I like it. Olivia Munn's so hot and she plays a financial nerd which is interesting. Emily Mortimer is the only MILF I find attractive, and then there's Allison Pill, who's such a dainty ditsy dweeb that tries so hard to do the right thing in her eyes, it makes her adorable. Then the guys...Jeff Daniels plays pompous smartass so amazingly well, but his big brother moments sell him most. He really is the tough guy with a soft spot in the show. Dev Patel as the nerd fits so well and helps estrange him from that INSUFFERABLE airbender movie, and now that they're doing the occupy wall street stuff in show he's probably gonna see even more play in show. John Gallagher is competent but very...idk...out of place I'd say. Even his character shows how out of place he is. The fact that he's like 40% if what's going on at any time drives me nuts, but at least he tries hard.
Honestly,the show is great. Instead of Pseudo Intellectual nonsense ( btw I hate the term pseudo intellectual)
like reviewrs like to claim,it's far more dumb news show shit, akin to what you'd see on the Today Show or even a talk show almost, only less showbiz news and more world news and politics. It's done in a smart mechnic, without people having to throw around 6 syllable terms that would alienate most viewers and piss of even more . I love it.
