A solid show with an even more solid blu-ray release.

  • Excerpt: The Newsroom is a really interesting, smart written show by the constantly impressive Aaron Sorkin. I'm not the best at writing reviews, so honestly, I'd really just recommend watching the opening scene on youtube, you'll either know you want to watch it or not.

  • Summary: When Sky TV launched their SoHo Channel The Newsroom was one of their lead offerings. Written by Aaron Sorkin (of West Wing fame) it gained a following in the USA. I enjoyed the series; the two lead actors are excellent and the production values are high. This said I only give it 3 1/2 stars. At times the script is so wordy it borders on tedium, also some of the characters slip into a stereotype mould and become unbelievable. Also on odd occasions the editing is ragged.
