  1. "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
    Thomas Jefferson.

  2. Holy smoke, that whole NSA plotline aired half a year before Snowden came up with the real surveillance leaks? It's like this show predicted the future on various occasions^^

  3. I like how Sorkin developed Reese throughout the series. You don't like him in the beginning, but at the end, you become a fan.

  4. The real hell of this scene concerns the line, "Don't shoot and miss" … because that's just what happened in the second season with Genoa, and that time, Leona Lansing covered her people … "And Jerry Dantana isn't gonna get one fucking dime!"

  5. Of course this is the event horizon of that black hole of self delusion known as "Wouldn't that be nice".

    This IS great TV. But the temptation is to turn it off after the program is over thinking the bad guys have been vanquished. The reality is that nobody is up there who has the balls to face down corporate greed driven newsrooms. The only ones with journalistic integrity are the independents and the volunteers down in the trenches.

    Fade to black. Run the Bank Of America commercial.

  6. I thought Mad Men was cool, and still is even if it lost its luster of early seasons. But the motif of depression and futility gets a little dull. I appreciate the exposure but ultimately, I'd like to watch and change myself into people that manage to find their places in the world and be happy. Newsroom show that a little better… even if they'd really bankrupt in real life if that tried to pull what they do on regular basis.

  7. I thought Mad Men was good, and it is, but I think even Newsroom is better, I'm more concerned and care more about the characters and their passionate quirkiness, than I do even the cast of Mad Men
