Open Caption: The Newsroom

I almost started singing Mr. Rogers' "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" as part of my intro this morning, but I stopped once I realized you guys wouldn't be able to hear it. It's a shame, though, because I'm a terrible vocalist and you may have appreciated that. Here are your winners from yesterday's contest:


From BDRegan:

Ryan: "I think I've traded one psychological manifestation who was completely covered in fur for another."


From Geek_Queen:

Ryan: "May I pet your beard?"
Doctor: "Does it remind you of Wilfred?"
Ryan: "No, it just looks so soft."


From jaynashvil:
Ryan: "You don't think I'm crazy, do you Doctor?"
Doctor: "Of course not. But I also think I'm a 60-year-old English nanny from Ork, so don't go by me."



Today's Image: The Newsroom

Everybody is talking about The Newsroom, one of the elite few whose writer/creator is perhaps more famous than any of the actors involved (well, Jeff Daniels is arguable). Aaron Sorkin has certainly churned out his fair share of hits (The Social Network, The West Wing, A Few Good Men), but he's no stranger to failure, either (Studio 60...). So where will his latest creation fall? We'll find out on Sunday. In Episode 1, newsroom anchor Will McAvoy (Daniels) engages in a very public meltdown, resulting in an overwhelming number of resignation letters from his crew. In the still below, Will (R) exchanges words with his pseudo-nemesis and ex-executive producer Don (L), while the president of the news division, Charlie (center), looks on. Post your best caption ideas in the comments!

Check out all of our recent winners on TV.com's Open Caption Pinterest Board.

Is anybody else besides me not being able to see the images of Open Caption? This has been happening for a few weeks now.

I'm sorry you're having trouble seeing the various photos. I hope you can find the problem and get it fixed soon.



Some browsers have a Compatiblity View button near the refresh, stop buttons near the address bar. Does clicking on that help anything? Sometimes right clicking on the red x (where the pic is supposed to be), then clicking on "Show picture" will bring up the photo.

That's weird. I don't know about everybody else, but I've been able to see them fine.

Thanks anyway. I've tried everything. Different browsers, different computers, nothing works.

Wow! That sucks, man. I was going to recommend a different browser, but I guess that would have been useless advice. And I don't even know why a different computer wouldn't work. How about you send me your email address through the TV.com messaging system (so only I get it and it's not just floating out there) and I will try to send you the picture for this contest to your email. If you're able to see the picture I send you, then you must be having some sort of incompatibility issue with TV.com.

Thank you. I see the pictures of any other site, but I don't see the pictures of Open Captions, headlines, photo recaps. Yes, there must be some incompatibility with tv.com, though technically I can't see how that could be happening.

I'd like to add that while I fully stand behind my caption's critique, I'm super excited and will happily devour every second of this show. Recycle away, Aaron. I am the dissatisfied, hyper-(pseudo)intellectual, angry liberal choir to whom you're preaching.

Hey, I'll watch it too, and I'm the dissatisfied, hyper-(pseudo) intellectual, angry conservative congregation that laughingly rejects his preaching.

Cool, man. We'll probably enjoy it equally.

It's really hard to take Sam seriously when he's dressed like Orville Redenbacher.
