Re: And now The Newsroom....

I thought it was great. I preferred the bombastic theme from last season but maybe that's just a question of getting used to the new one.

The way the episode and by extension pretty much the whole season is structured is quite ambitious. It isn't easy to tell a story well with flashes from the past. It also requires some patience from the audience and isn't as accessible to new viewers.

Will's talk with the lawywers was hilarious and made me laugh out loud a couple of times. I can imagine what happened to Maggie but I'm still eager to find out. Loved Mac's thoughtful comments at the end. I also want to know how Jim will fare on the Romney campaign trail. And of course, what Genoa is. Come to think of it, this episode was really full of content. Can't wait for next week.
