The Newsroom really puts into perspective how great Sports Night and The West Wing are. Newsroom, on paper, seems like its got all the right things in place. but somehow manages to lack all the charms of the latter shows. Just continuously misses the mark. Sluggish and heavy-handed.
It’s what I expect a Sorkin show would be like if we were all stuck in the bad timeline from Community’s Remedial Chaos Theory
Why did nobody tell me that the ‘Journey to the Centre of Hawkthorne’ game actually exists?????
Remember when Community was consistently funny? Thank the heavens that Parks and Rec is still hilarious.
