Aaron Sorkin is a genius. First Sports Night, then West Wing, and now this. No one does TV better.

I hadn´t even got to the opening credits of the first episode and I was already hooked. This show is amazing in every aspect. Brilliantly written and performed by an amazing group of actors who, from top to bottom, brought their A-game in each and every episode. The acting is at times so intense that I was literally on the edge of my seat. Dialogues and the sense of humor are great. The quality of the production is on the same level, or better, with big screen movies.

I am not American or live there but the message of "The Newsroom" concerning the news and the presentation of it does work everywhere else, too. Am I dissapointed they only made 25 episodes ? Well, yes and no. Because I´d rather have 25 hours of 100% the best they could do than having 100 hours of a show where 25 % of it was the best they could do.
