Everyone else is correct. This show is great. The cast is downright amazing. Probably one of my favorite full-casts of all time. The show itself is entertaining and fascinating. 9/10 Looking forward to Season 3. Sad to hear it will probably be the last.

What can I say, that hasn't been covered by the comments below / before mine? DAMN! This is some fine entertainment. Jeff Daniels and the rest of the Ensemble are fantastic. The story was threaded into real historical events seamlessly, and might I add believably also. I started off questioning my choice to watch it initially and then binge watched all 19 episodes in 2 days. I can't wait till Season 3. if it goes well, I like to think HBO would reconsider and go for a 4th Season, if the Story is there, or if it is possible becasue of where the next Season leaves us at the end.

God I can't get enough of this show. I rewatch episodes over and over because sometimes there's little nuances and bits you miss. Or at least I do haha. And Aaron Sorkin's writing is top notch. Love Sam Waterston as Charlie. I grew up with him on Law and order and now when you watch him as this kind of macho, alcoholic, media mogul he takes on a completely different side of himself. And besides Jeff Daniels he's my favourite. Also, who'd have thought Dev Patel from slumdog would actually be a decent actor?! I like him on this show. Great cast, great writing. My new favourite show since Suits.

As to be expected HBO brings it-smart, quirky,sassy politically motivated show - the acting is fantistic...I must say that there are tiny holes that sometimes makes my eyes roll, but that's because the show actually sets a standard that it sometimes trips itself up on. i would love it if the show was more subtle in its awkward raw charm - in that sometimes that very identifiable charactistic of the show becomes to blatant. And no to the HBO/Sex in the City reference - the writers of this show should not had gone there (and I'm a fan of SIC). It's smart, charming and cool in it's own way - can't wait until the next season.

My favorite show. Love the cast. I think Olivia Munn who plays Sloan sabbeth has a real talent for news casting, she seems to have a certain kind of voice and flare you see with some of real Anchor women. She also was the reporter on Iron man 2. she had a very small role. You see her in the first 5 minutes into the movie for about a half minute. She recently came out she suffers from OCD = Obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The Newsroom has a wit, sophistication and manic energy.... But at its worst a couple of the episodes chokes on its own sanctimony. Overall, I love it.
