Realistic portrayal of a newsroom
18 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I work in broadcasting. This is a very real show to me. The ass-kissing, self-serving characters on this show hit home with me. There's not a character on this show that isn't like someone that I work with.

The show is hysterical. But, I think it's one that requires much attention, or you'll miss something. The actions and results are right on top of each other, from scene to scene. There is a lot of dialog, with no real punchline. It's totally played straight, which makes it brilliant.

The only thing I don't like about it is that there isn't a 4th season. What a pity.
