The Newsroom Season 2 Episode 4 recap Okay, well, this is the episode where things began to happen. And it’s the episode where the distance between what The Newsroom is trying to do and what it does do comes the closest to being closed. This is what it could be, at its most noble and terrible. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 2 Episode 2 recap That Beyonce show was amazing. And one of the most amazing parts was her all-female band, which included three brass players. I couldn’t stop looking at them.      Here’s what kills me. To be a professional trumpet player of that level is a full-time yet thankless job. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 10 recap How is it that a Season Finale that involves, among other things, a suicide and a man with life-threatening internal bleeding was so slow and boring?   I was never worried about Will, because they told me he was going to be fine in the first 10 minutes, so I got to watch him pontificate from bed over how he was leaving the show – which I also wasn’t worried about. Full Story

Selfless Journalists. Heh.

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 9 Dear Mackenzie, How are ya?  Good? Good. Yeah, yeah, busy.  No, I know.   I know.   You?   Oh…really?  Well.   I kind of heard something about that.   Yeah… You were screaming in the middle of the Newsroom, right? Something about Jesus avenging you against having to report bad news? … Oh. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 8 recap This was the line that struck me, last night, in what was easily the best episode of The Newsroom so far.   Though there were still problems, the show took the time to focus on what it does, and wants to do, best: examining the difference between the news that should be reported, and that which is instead. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 6 recap The following are some of the mistakes made by women in this episode: Mixing up Georgia the state and Georgia the country. Thinking “LOL” means “Lots Of Love” – even when you were born in 1988. Changing your mind about something to do with your career because there is the promise of Gucci clothing. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 5 I’m never that far from The Newsroom.  That’s something that felt giddy and gossipy a couple of weeks ago that now feels tiresome.  Because nothing is different. The show is still way out of its depth when it comes to human beings relating to each other in a human way,  men and women – well, you already know the drill  -  but it’s changed for me, from being can’t-look-away car crash to just…exhaustion. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 4 “The fourth episode!” some Newsroom fans cried, as proof that the show is really going somewhere despite acknowledged flaws in the beginning.   “The fourth episode” critics snorted, pointing out that if you thought the show was unbelievable now, wait ‘til you caught up. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 3 recap I like high-low fashion, that whole concept of a skirt you spent way too much on paired with a Forever 21 tee and shoes you would never tell anyone were by Jessica Simpson.  It makes me feel like I’m getting away with something, like I’m savvy, because I can pair one with the other and still (hopefully) pull off a look. Full Story
