The Newsroom: “What Kind of Day Has It Been”

The Newsroom: “What Kind of Day Has It Been”

This past Sunday marked the series finale for Aaron Sorkin’s controversial show, The Newsroom. Public opinion on the series has swayed heavily in both directions. Some praise it as the most intelligent, eye-opening series to ever grace the screen, while others condemn it as a self-righteous, misogynistic free-for-all. To me, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. ‘What Kind of Day Has It Been,’ like the series as a whole, is a healthy combination of good and bad, leaving plenty of room for debate. The episode cuts back and forth between Charlie Skinner’s funeral and the formation of News Night 2.0 three years...

The Newsroom: “Oh Shenandoah”

The Newsroom: “Oh Shenandoah”

Wow. Just wow. You know… With the first couple of episodes of The Newsroom‘s third season, I was intrigued. I wondered where it was going to go, and it was nice to see Kat Dennings, one of my favorite young actresses, playing a character that isn’t a comedic foil. With the next couple of episodes, I started to realize that Sorkin was inadvertently turning me against these characters by showing that they are just as smug and outdated as the world around them. Now, don’t get me wrong. These characters were always obnoxious, self-righteous and arrogant; but throughout two seasons, they’ve at least been watchable....

The Newsroom: “Contempt”

The Newsroom: “Contempt”

  A wedding, an arrest, budding romance, pranks, a corporate acquisition and Charlie Skinner at his finest. Viewers were treated to all of this in what was arguably one of the best episodes of the Newsroom yet. This episode picked up right where the last left off, with a subpoena in Will’s hands. While it was nice to hear the team try to predict the future, it was a welcome change to hear Mack tell Will to stop acting calm since he has been wrong about everything thus far. In many ways, it seemed like she was echoing many viewers sentiments about him not letting his ego get in the way of making good decisions. We did get a rare peak...

The Newsroom: “Main Justice”

The Newsroom: “Main Justice”

The justice department was all– “You’re going to do this!” and Will was like, “No we’re not!” and then that guy- Nope, nope, nope, let me try again.With the FBI boxing up all their equipment in a show of force, Charlie managed to shoo them out by threatening to put them on television. Maggie went to Jim for help putting together an interesting piece on climate change which quickly escalated into a quiet meltdown for the Deputy Director of the EPA (because the EPA didn’t have an official head). In order to save the ACN from its apathetic heirs, Leona and Reese had to find a new investor to buy...

The Newsroom: “Run”

The Newsroom: “Run”

There is no denying The Newsroom has officially swung into full gear in the second episode of its final six-episode run. The series has never lost its edge in terms of intellectual originality and hilarity, as every ensemble interacts with playful liveliness. However, the season premiere gave a foreboding sense that something of a massive scale was about to occur at any minute. Episode two delivers this collision, and it is by far the biggest we have seen in The Newsroom as of yet. The episode is filled with guest stars and familiar faces, and with good reason. This is entirely unlike any episode of The Newsroom that we have ever...

The Newsroom Season 3: Boston

The Newsroom Season 3: Boston

The Newsroom returned this past Sunday with relentless suspense and a fantastic reintroduction to our favorite news crew. However, before we begin, let’s recap where we left off and what this means for the characters now. Will McAvoy, still as enraged and outspoken as ever, has recovered from his OD, the voicemail incident with Mac, and the two begin discussing their wedding plans in the season premiere. Jim is still as vivacious as ever yet remains tormented by his relationship with Maggie. Their love lives are as tumultuous as ever, particularly after the “Sex and the City” bus tour fiasco, Jim’s decision to date Lisa (the girl...

The Newsroom Season 3: Teasers and Trailers

The Newsroom Season 3: Teasers and Trailers

UPDATE: The First Full Newsroom Season 3 Trailer “If you have our back then we’re not gonna let you get shot in yours” All good things must eventually come to an end. But why do some end sooner than others? It’s an existential question, to be sure but at times like these– when it almost feels like we’re losing a friend that we ask ourselves these questions. The answer in this case can be summed up with a name: Aaron Sorkin. The creator and writer of The Newsroom is a busy man and simply doesn’t have time for 10 hours of television per year.  Yes, if you hadn’t heard: The Newsroom Season 3 will...

The Newsroom Season 3 Gets a Premiere Date

The Newsroom Season 3 Gets a Premiere Date

UPDATE: November 9th at 9PM is the official start date for The Newsroom Season 3! We’d been waiting and waiting for final confirmation of The Newsroom season 3 and a possible air date. HBO didn’t let us down this week as they revealed a NOVEMBER premiere window for the series. We predicted as much earlier today with this tweet: If we had to guess we’d bet on a The Newsroom Season 3 teaser with premiere date along with @TrueBloodHBO‘s finale tonight! — HBO Watch (@HBOWatch) August 25, 2014In a teaser trailer that showed very little of the actual show an air date finall emerged. We expect it to air alongside Getting...

Olivia Munn on THE NEWSROOM’s Final Season

Olivia Munn on THE NEWSROOM’s Final Season

Zap2it got a strong quote from Olivia Munn, who plays Sloane Sabbith on Aaron Sorkin’s THE NEWSROOM. Since there has been little buzz about the show as it approaches its third and final season HBOWatch thought we’d better get that quote to you.   Olivia Munn told the site – “I love [Season 3 being the last] because, one, I think it’s so much better to do a project where everyone’s excited about doing it and the work is really great and you’re excited about it. Sorkin writes every single episode. I’m sure there are other things that he has to do in his life, that he wants to do, and that takes a lot of...

THE NEWSROOM Casting For Final Season

THE NEWSROOM Casting For Final Season

There is very little to report right now on the third and final season of THE NEWSROOM. All we have to share is a new character to the series and who personifies that role. Keith Powell, who you might recognize from 30 Rock, is making his presence known in the ACN bullpen. He will play Wyatt Geary, the new Human Resources Vice President at news station.  Nothing else to report but it is good to know that the third and final season of the newsroom is in production and on the way! That is all we got. HBOWatch just thought it was time to bring THE NEWSROOM to the forefront as we anticipate its return later this year. Oh, and we also found this...

Aaron Sorkin Apologizes to Journalists for The Newsroom

Aaron Sorkin Apologizes to Journalists for The Newsroom

While the final season 3 of HBO’s Newsroom is planned for later this year we haven’t heard a whole lot from the cast or Aaron Sorkin lately.  At the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday he spoke out about his controversial series saying and wanted to clear the air about at least one aspect of the show: “I’m going to let you all stand in for everyone in the world, if you don’t mind. I think you and I got off on the wrong foot with The Newsroom and I apologize and I’d like to start over,” Sorkin told the audience after interviewer (and former President Obama speech writer) Jon Favreau asked about what he’s learned about...
