    ugh. I fucking hate GIRLS, but most of all, I hate the lead actress in Girls (who's also [I think] the writer and exec. producer). Self-entitled, coddled, spoiled fucking brat.

    Newsroom is good. I love Emily Mortimer.

    I hate The Newsroom. Not fun, not funny.

    Aaron Sorkin is the Howard Stern of writers. He's stuck romanticizing a past that was never that romantic.

    But he sure can write pretty.

    Thanks for reminding me! The opening sequence made me think I wouldn't like it but it's good. Well written.

    Girls is all right.

    I had to get used to seeing Lena Dunham because I have this aversion to chicks with really big ugly tattoos. Not to mention the fact that she's fat and ugly. But that's the whole point of the series. Still, I got tired of the overanalyzing of each episode.

    Plus, I got sick of Jimmy Kimmel and Louis CK and other "dudes" saying this was like the greatest TV show they've ever watched.

    But Brian Williams' daughter is hot.

    Agree.
    Tried to watch it but it's nothing but speechifying.

    I still haven't watched The Newsroom, yet. The previews looked promising. I know it's just waiting for me to watch On Demand. Aaron Sorkin: The Social Network, A Few Good Men, The West Wing, etc, how bad can this be?

    I can only watch True Blood so many times!

    leftist bullshit?

    since when is disliking millions of gallons of oil dumped into the ocean a fucking politcal position?

    I saw the pilot. Jeff Daneils character went off on both the left and the right. That was the central theme of the plot.

    I saw it too, thought it was pretty good. I'll never forgive Hanoi Jane though, no matter what character she plays..

    i guess if you think haliburton is COMPLETELY INNOCENT based SOLELY on the fact that their former head was eventually the VP (which is the 'right wing hack jobs' 3rd commandment), then the show is leftest agenda

    Again, i only saw the pilot, but it appeared to me that Jeff Daniels was playing a Chris Mathews type, not a Glenn Beck type.

    They are making fun of Mathews, how is that leftest agenda?
