News & Interviews for The Newsroom: Season 3
The frustrating thing is that, from my perspective as a journalism dinosaur who still remembers a pre-Internet newsroom, Sorkin is generally right... But Sorkin's characters are just so obnoxiously pious about it.
So much of this last season of The Newsroom, and especially the finale, read as Sorkin recognizing that there was a problem with his own show.
At least The Newsroom is going out in a way that should make us remember it warmly.
Season 3 is full of complications from the bonds formed among the journalists, both platonically and romantically, and holds up to Sorkin's grand dialogue mixed with pithy, yet telling, exchanges.
It can be so good, so subtly knowing and funny, and then all of a sudden you can feel like you're trapped on a train car with someone who's ranting into his cell phone and not using his indoor voice.
Though some found The Newsroom to be heavy handed with its social and political diatribes, it remains a solid entry in the HBO canon.
Too many plots when the main one is excessive already. [Full Review in Spanish]
Stripped of the forced romances, the internet slamming, and the "I am Spartacus" levels of everyone saying they are Don Quixote, it's actually a really good show. A good show in desperate need of an editor.
Ties up every loose end for every major character, then dumps a suffocating layer of schmaltz over the entire affair.
With the characters in a good place, Sorkin's strongest arcs to date help give season three an unexpected cohesiveness.
Audience Reviews for The Newsroom: Season 3
Feb 08, 2021This is a solid conclusion to Aaron Sorkin's short-lived series, even if it isn't particularly challenging.
May 04, 2020I've been a massive fan of Aaron Sorkin for a long time now and I consider him to be one of my absolute favorite screenwriters. I decided to check out one of his television offerings, "The Newsroom." As always, this series did not disappoint. The show grabbed my interest from the very first scene and kept my interest almost at all times. I love the messages about the integrity of the news and think it is a very important one that will resonate with audiences forever. The show is fictional, but it feels very grounded in reality, primarily because of the way it tackles actual events. I also think the characters have great subplots and the performances are rock solid across the board. Jeff Daniels delivers one of his most memorable performances and carries the series to greatness. These actors do a great job because Sorkin's script is razor-sharp and very engaging. The show mostly shines in its first and final season but I definitely still think the whole series is very entertaining. Critics accused this show of being preachy, which at times it definitely can be, but I feel they missed the important part, which is how relevant messages presented are. Overall, if you like Sorkin's other works, this show is definitely worth watching.
Jul 08, 2019Season 3 ? I dont believe this show recovered from season 1 (and was cancelled in Season 2) This is a classically bad show - almost as bad as Veep - One dimensional and smug - literally turned off all audiences - one of the worse cable shows of all time according to TV Guide
