Episode discussion for: 01x04 | I'll Try to Fix You (Jul 15, 2012)

The HBO's series "The Newsroom" is an excellent series about the lousy job our news media does. Somewhat soapy at times but it makes up for that by being a quality show about the lack of useful news, and sometimes the lies, from mainstream media. I just watched episode four and it seems to get better with every episode.

I didn't like this episode as much as the previous ones, maybe it was just a bit too soapy for my taste? But either way, I'm looking forward to the next episode.

I had the same problem with Studio 60, at one point I just thought it was a bit too soapy.

Sorry guys, but life in general is a little "soapy". Even in professional work areas, our personal life does intercede. I think they're just trying to balance things out and show that they are indeed human and not just about the news and their career. Love this show.
