erinptah: A map. (writing)
[personal profile] erinptah

An article on The Daily Beast about The Newsroom's treatment of female characters. Contains major spoilers for episodes 1-2, minor ones for episodes 3-4.

I just saw episode two, and my overall feelings go like this: there's a Newsroom that Sorkin is showing us, and then there's a Newsroom that Sorkin is telling us about, and I like the first Newsroom very much. There are a couple of mental edits I've made to the "telling" parts to bring them more in line with the "showing" parts. If I have to do that more and more as the series goes on, it's going to be less and less enjoyable...but hey, I made it through the last series of Glee, and it's not like this can be harder.

Spoilers: mental rewrites, more detail, and miscellaneous reactions. )

Would love to hear everyone else's reactions!
