I mean, I like Emily as an actress, and even Alison, she's terrific. But guys are treating poor smoking-hot Olivia like she's a guy in drag or something when they should be all over her, from a real-world perspective. I hope the plot in the future allows Olivia to be "attractive" and gives her a relationship, it's the only thing in the show that is wildly improbable.

That said, next week looks a lot more lively with actual events happening so maybe it won't be so boring, but if they keep up this machine-gun smarty-pants insider chatter only Mensa members will be able to keep track of it.
OMG, the inside flippery is hard to take. Don't think one needs to be a genius, just more au courant with inside the biz jargon....
I'm just now boarding the train, as I bailed after the first ep due to that very phenom. I thought the first ep was hard to follow for other reasons, too. Thank heavens for VOD!

I believe that the fact that Sorkin's Studio 60 made it one season and 30 Rock will be wrapping up in it's seventh season this fall (138 episodes) is an example of the difference between good TV and popular TV.

Man, the Newsroom finale was awesome last night! The show has really found its stride. Good for intelligent TV!! I still can't figure how Sorkin gets away with such obvious Republican bashing but it works for me. (snickers into shirtsleeve)
