  • Intelligent Television is back! Oh and Sorkin too...

    This is what I'm talking about! Six years since The West Wing left us and I've been wondering ever since if I would be able to watch a show that made me think ever again. This show is vintage Aaron Sorkin and I soaked up every second of this wonderful series premiere.

    Set during the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the news show is transformed to what we always wanted our news to be - honest and fair; not balanced but fair. I only wish the real world could be the same. Mackenzie is witty, smart and sexy. She is the center of the show despite Will being the anchor. Sorkin's idealism bleeds through the script at every turn and inspires me to change my life and positively effect the world.

    I can't wait to see how the show holds up over the rest of the season and hopefully for many more to come. I highly recommend it.
