Re: And now The Newsroom....

What I miss so far this season is the heart stopping moment of the episode. Season one stories would have the usual back and forth drama, and then some breaking news would happen that would cause somewhat of a gasp in the narrative. Then the date would slowly type on screen and we would see what moment of history the characters just ran into to.

That's what made the show unique to me; and it made you feel like you really were part of the Newsroom seeing what those people go through in their job. I'm just not feeling that this year; it's turned into generic drama.

That's a very good point. They were idiots and screwing around in season 1 and then something would happen and kick them into high gear. If you are going to have a show take so far behind in the past that technique should be used.
