Aaron Sorkin's HBO Lovechild
I've more or less had no spare time since about two weeks before Christmas, but I have been able to catch a few movies, catch up on a few shows, and discover a new one - The Newsroom. I know I should have probably watched it already, but, hey, we only got HBO at Christmas.
I mean, it's a show about a TV show by Aaron Sorkin, and I loved Sports Night, and while this shares an uncanny number of similarities with it, it's still awesome. Plus, there's plenty of West Wing thrown in.
That and there are tons of people to watch - Jeff Daniels, Olivia Munn, Emily Mortimer, Dev Patel, Alison Pill, and Kelen Coleman. And Sam Waterston. Saying this (give it 30 seconds, it's worth it).
