    My gut reaction is to agree with this, but we see an incompetent cohort group like them every 70 years or so. These things go in cycles.

      So the show is already ****** and you hate Sorkin.. why are you going to watch it? It seems like a waste of your time.

I could see how some of it may have been off-putting and it was a bit cheesy at times but all in all i thought it was interesting, had good dialogue (generally), has a good premise, and has the potential for some great character development.
        Except that it wasn't, at all.

            I'm going to watch the pilot episode because I once had promise for the show, seeing as how I'm a journalist and have been hoping for a while that a serious drama about journalism would emerge. I just don't have high hopes. Yes, I can form an opinion of my own, but when there's this much critical backlash to a new show, I am going to expect it to be warranted.

            I don't hate Sorkin exactly, I'm just lukewarm on his stuff. If his agenda is political and preachy rather than a serious, genuine attempt to dramatize the industry, then obviously, that turns me off in a hurry.

            • When they're trying to force that down everyone's throats, even though it isn't true, yes. Add on to the fact that we're going to have to deal with a Sorkin written romantic subplot (the Harriet/Albie one on Studio 60 was AWFUL), it's going to be annoying. There are some positives to it, such as Allison Pill and the acting in general, but the writing is the problem.

                You mean exactly like he did in The Social Network, which you decide to call overrated just because you can?

                • You seem to genuinely dislike it. If that is the case, why would you continue to watch it?

                    Because there's still potential in it.

                      It IS overrated. And I already told you my opinion of that film will forever be scarred because the girl I watched it with is a *****.

                        Hey, I saw Inglorious Basterds with a horrible woman and I'm able to separate such things. It's something that must be done, Social Network is a goddamn masterpiece goddammit.

                          That's easy to forgive because Inglorious Basterds is fantastic.

                            • So not only has alphas already started but it looks like a bunch of episodes have already leaked. Why am I just learning this as I get ready to head out on a friday night?
