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to realize that Sorkin was inadvertently turning me against these characters by showing that they are just as smug and outdated as the world around them.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...
