The Newsroom is that show that is about people who work in a newsroom, presenting the news and getting up to all sorts of shenanigans whilst they’re at it. However the Newsroom isn’t really about the presentation of the news itself but rather the process of gathering and developing stories. Sadly for the handful of fans the show had, season 3 was the final segment in the Newsroom’s very short run.
TV and movies like to make being a Californian lawyer seem like it is the greatest job in the world, with twists and turns all over the place and passionate speeches swaying the jury at the final moment. Yes it is a formula that has been seen so many times before and Franklin and Bash gives you pretty much what you’d expect.
Veep is a classic example of the mess that is American comedy, where you get a show which is sharp, witty and intelligent, wins lots of awards and is considered highly by critics and fans alike but then doesn’t get the viewing figures it deserves. Of course what else would you expect from a show which was developed by and based on something British? Naturally like pretty much every remake it isn’t as good as the original.
