    Is anyone watching The Newsroom?

    Well I am. It's pretty rare that I find a show on television that can hold my interest. It's on HBO and the last few series that HBO has brought to life have, it seems, concentrated on the set more than the content. While it has to do with topical political stories, the writing and pace are very well done. I'm really not familiar with Aaron Sorkin but his I like what he has done to make a show worth watching. YMMV
    BTW it's HBO so there is some harsh language

    I'm watching it, and I'm in the tv buzz. I'm enjoying it. Very well produced.

    I sold the only TV I have ever owned in late 1978 and have never missed it.
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    I'm almost there with the TV. The kids and wife like it though. I'd have a much harder time getting rid of my computer.

    I've heard that. There is probably a lot of truth in it.

    I hope the quality of writing continues in season 2.

    HBO is starting to run through the past seasons episodes. Looks like the new season starts July 14, 2013. I hope it stands up.
