News & Interviews for The Newsroom: Season 2
The main flaw of The Newsroom was - and remains - the central tenet of The Newsroom: its odd insistence on fixing news that has already been broken.
You can't fault The Newsroom for lack of ambition, and the cast ensures that its viewers will never get bored.
How a man can simultaneously be so out of touch and yet have his finger so firmly on the pulse is remarkable.
Few TV dramas are as thought-provoking or daringly opinionated.
The Newsroom can be exciting in small doses, but when the tone is always at a peak, the peaks just make a new floor.
The Newsroom completely disrespects its audience. [Full Review in Spanish]
The point may very well be that Sorkin isn't interested in producing - or perhaps is unable to produce? - the same level of inspiring characters as he did in his earlier TV drama The West Wing.
Instead of feeling crassly manipulated or condescended to, The Newsroom, as it closes out a very rocky second season, finally saw Sorkin get the formula right and return to the promise that season one put forth.
I want, desperately, to feel a solid, indestructible feeling of idealism and joy at watching this show. Sometimes it earns it. Sometimes it doesn't. Most of this season, it fell short. That makes me sad.
Audience Reviews for The Newsroom: Season 2
Feb 08, 2021Even if the story isn't as compelling as it should be, Sorkin's characters speak with enough loaded dialogue and enormous wit that they're capable of carrying the entire series.
