      Season 3 – The Newsroom

      2014 Drama List
      Reviews 91% 250+ Ratings Audience Score Aaron Sorkin once chronicled the daily work of the federal government in "The West Wing." In "The Newsroom," the Emmy-winning executive producer uses the operation of a fictional cable news network as the heart of the story, with Jeff Daniels portraying the network's lead anchor and leading an ensemble cast. Episodes are written around actual recent news events, reported by a staff that takes its collective responsibilities seriously, but corporate and commercial obstacles -- plus entangled personal relationships -- fly in the face of their public mission.

      Previous Hemant S One from the older school of drama series akin to "The Wire", "The Sopranos", "Mad Men" but in a different theme. Penned by the critically acclaimed Aaron Sorkin, the plot revolves around the lead newsman of the daily news section of a media giant, and the travails he and his team go through as they strive to "fight for civility" and the integrity of journalism. The 3 season series is flagged by the various real life events that occurred through the actual telecast years and some from the past. This series is particularly relevant and tries hard to open eyes to the commercial toxicity that has seeped in to journalism, with money driving the news instead of vice versa and the birth of fake news as a consequence; in a day and age when it takes a hell lot to actually believe what's written and broadcast on TV and social media. A lot of the content revolves around American politics, and while the fast paced dialogue delivery can seem dry and impressive in the same moment, "The Newsroom" delivers well on striking a tricky balance between drama and realist television. Jeff Daniels stands out in his performance as the lead, even in his moments of blank stares that depict the conundrums his character is going through. The rest of the ensemble deliver well in the background, particularly Dev Patel as the passionately principled digital geek in the team. Definitely worth a binge. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent script, excellent casting!! Accurate, erudite, witty!! I’m sad to see it is no longer running. Our society needs this program. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Why O why did this end?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the end for the show with a smaller season. There is bit of cheesiness due to the all ends covered among all the characters, but succeeds in being a great show all the way through. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best shows ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review brandon w The Newsroom: Season 3 is run by Aaron Sorkin, and it's the final season that's about the news crew finally dealing with genoa, but still has to find a way to get the audience back, while having to deal with a marriage, the act of espionage, and getting bought off. When seeing that this season has 6 episodes, the least I've seen in a season in some time, is quite interesting, and is curious about what the story is about, which to my surprise, is better than the second season. The cast is still fantastic as ever, I mean there's not a better news crew for than what you think of in this show. The stories are more interesting as it gets into more of the danger territory for the characters which works because you know these characters for quite some time and don't want anything bad to happen to them. The chemistry between Will and Mackenzie is really good, and the chemistry between Don and Sloan is quite interesting as they give off some snappy dialogue to each other and is very funny to watch that you can definitely tell that are meant for each other. I actually start to feel sorry for Leona and Reese which is surprising consider I was having a bit of a distaste against them in the first season as they kept caring more about the ratings than the actual news that the people actually wanted to know about. The script is more tight, and it makes the arguments more compelling knowing where the characters are come from, and understanding both sides of the situation. The character progression is great consider the danger they're in, and it has some hilarious moments. Does it still feel like a soap opera? Yes it does, but since it's 6 episodes long, there's not much of it, so I guess that's good. The way it ended the series, is honestly sad, but a bittersweet end that makes the third season to be a terrific one that I'm sad to see that The Newsroom is Aaron Sorkin's last show, but at least he ended with doing what he loves to do.
