For me winter time is TV show time. Every now and then I really like to grab a cup of hot tea and a blanket and place myself in front of the TV for about an hour. While there are many great TV shows out there, there’s one that I’ve discovered only recently and yet, I’m absolutely crazy about it.
The catch… this show actually makes you feel smarter after watching it, instead of the opposite. ;)
Ever heard of The Newsroom? It’s a show written by Aaron Sorkin and unfortunately it will only have 3 seasons. The third premiered just yesterday. So even if you didn’t know it until yet, it’s easy getting into it, since you don’t have two binge watch twenty seasons…
So here’s roughly what it’s about: (Source HBO)
From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom, a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.
One of the reviews after the first two seasons:
In a world riddled with ridiculous, senseless, mind-numbing shows, The Newsroom is a breath of fresh air.
Even if you don’t usually go for this kind of show, promise me you’ll watch the first episode and I guarantee you, you’ll be hooked. :) You can watch the promo for season 3 here.
