Did you know he has a new series on HBO? It's called Newsroom, I just watched the first episode and liked it. I miss the rapid fire dialog he is so famous for.

The entire first episode was (legally) posted on Youtube in order to get the word out.

I wasn't impressed. I liked The West Wing but for whatever reason The Newsroom left me cold. I may see how the future episodes go.

I think I will watch the youtube. Maybe I need HBO. I wait for true blood to come out on dvd and then watch the whole season in a week.

Thanks for the tip about YouTube. We don't have any premium channel...the darn bill is already too much!

Hopefully it will do well enough to make it to DVD.

I had DH set the DVR for the show. I'm out of the country so hopefully he got it right and I'll watch when I get back.

I loved the pilot, I watched it last night and immediately recommended it to my friends via Facebook. I thought it was great. I don't care much for politics but I like the characters and the actors and I'm very interested in seeing how the world of TV journalism works.

I watched it and was underwhelmed.

Does everyone talk in speech form? Thought it was so formulaic. The ex-GF becomes your producer.

The girl who played the naive staffer -- she looked like she was 35 and she is acting like an intern?

That said, I love Jeff Daniels. Love him.

OMG...just watched the opening scene. Loved it! Loved JD!

I wonder just how much HBO would cost?
