If you’re like most sane people, you spent Sunday night mocking the almost ghoulishly awful series finale of Dexter (Incompetent plotting! CGI hurricanes! Unfortunate beards!) and reveling in the gloriously excellent penultimate episode of Breaking Bad. Thus, this post is for you, the people who didn’t waste their time watching the 65th...
The 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are over. The show was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, and let's be honest, it wasn't his best. As a whole, the ceremony left a lot to be desired but we're staying positive. Despite the gloomy tone and multiple song and dance numbers, the Emmys had some bright spots. Here are five things that made this year's show worth watching.
Whatever you thought the season finale of The Newsroom would be like; we’re guessing you were far off base. “Election Night, Part 2” covered every issue we expected with none of the assumed results. The show has finally become the impressive giant it's always threatened to be.
It may be Election Night 2012 on The Newsroom but Genoa still has us in its grips. “Election Night, Part 1” eased none of the anxiety the team’s failure caused and continues to mystify. Just how News Night will make good on their misstep is unclear, but for once we want to stick around to see how it’s done.
The Newsroom has finally become the show we want, and you shouldn’t miss a second of it. “Red Team III” lays out all those missing Genoa breadcrumbs, and it's much worse than we could have ever guessed. Now, we’re left to wonder like many of the characters, can one bad story bring down an entire news team?
For the second week in a row The Newsroom was practically beyond reproach. That's high praise for a show that recently circled the drain. “One Step Too Far” deals heavily in the Genoa drama, which is exactly what everyone wanted. As Stephen Root joins the ranks as a guest star, it looks like Aaron Sorkin finally stumbled on a newsworthy recipe.
The Newsroom might be worth watching again. “News Night with Will McAvoy” slowed their timeline, depicting the bustling newsroom and all the dramas that occur while Will’s on air. Sometimes risks don’t pan out but this one might have saved the season.
Sunday night, The Newsroom took another trip to the not so far future only to immediately revisit the past. “Unintended Consequences” has Maggie retelling her experience in Africa while she grapples with the fallout. In finally giving a respectable plot to an embattled character, is the show taking a step in the right direction?
The third episode of The Newsroom wasn’t a total disappointment. “Willie Pete” is good and bad, much like the show as a whole. Though gains were made, white phosphorous isn’t the only thing that’s burning through potential.
They say faith is something you can’t see, hear, or touch and for the cronies on The Newsroom that’s a good thing. After watching “The Genoa Tip” you'd have to have full confidence that the crew can pull things together. Our convictions aren’t that strong, but we’re sure Aaron Sorkin has a good episode coming right?
It’s too late to go back and lower our expectations for the season premiere of The Newsroom and that’s a shame. Had we known “First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All the Lawyers” would be a blast from the past—literally and figuratively—we would have prepared ourselves. Will and company are still plugging away at News Nigh, only this season they mess up big time. ...
This week brings one of the biggest films of 2013 (so far) to home video, some Disney animated titles, and some classic schlock. All in all a good week of releases.
Summer's almost here and you know what that means – beach trips and snow cones. TV isn't that appealing when it's 95 degrees outside and the kids are home. But you'd be surprised at how many great shows are premiering this sizzling season. Here's our list of the Top 10 Most Anticipated Shows of Summer 2013.
Let's be honest, The Newsroom is not without its problems. They've been well documented by us and practically every critic around. However, underneath all the crap, there's a good show fighting to get out. As the season ends, we'd like to remind viewers why they should stick around for round two. If the finale made it hard to see the merit behind the mess, here are...
Last night, The Newsroom aired its first season finale and things could've gone better. "The Greater Fool" sews up a few major plots in a neat little bow. It also highlights the things that should disappear from News Night forever. Can the series end on good terms if it tries its damndest to prove how bad it can be?
Last night's The Newsroom went from incredibly boring to completely gripping in half an hour. In "The Blackout Part 2: Mock Debate" it seems like half the episode was forgotten by the writers. Which would you prefer? A show where the first 30 minutes are great, while the second are mundane, or vice versa? And is that our only option ?
Last night, The Newsroom kicked off a two-episode arc and so far things aren't going well. "The Blackout Part 1: Tragedy Porn" focused on the fallout over the team's drop in ratings. David Krumholtz and Jane Fonda returned, but that wasn't enough to save this ship. So where exactly did the episode hit the skids?
The Newsroom's "5/1" focuses on the death of terrorist Osama bin Laden, or rather the build up to the announcement. Also, this week, relationships play a bigger role but don't darken the night. Can The Newsroom keep up their winning streak?
The Newsroom continued its winning streak with last night's episode. "Bullies" focused on the fallout of using aggressive tactics and manipulation. Olivia Munn shined, as did guest stars Terry Crews and David Krumholtz. The episode wasn't without problems, but the negative didn't outweigh the positive.
Last night, The Newsroom took a turn for the better. “Amen” focused on the uprising in Egypt and the protests in Wisconsin from February 2011. Leaving the issue of the female characters in the background, we might finally be able to see the amazing series underneath.
