George Findlay: [George's car has been sideswiped by a worker from the French Consulate who refuses to pay for the damages] Of course he was drunk! The French always drive drunk! Look at Princess Di's driver! Bombed out of his mind! Do you know what the sobriety test is in France? Is the driver's liver functioning?

Reply to Newshawk
8 February 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Judging The Newsroom after one episode is somewhat premature. I did not watch The Newsroom (1996) so cannot compare. Comparing the new actors is also quite premature. I hope Newshawk has watched more than the first episode. After a hiatus of 8 years, of course it is different from its predecessor. If viewers want easy laughter, there are enough asinine shows on television that would make him happy.

Kudos to CBC, Ken Finkleman and the "true-blue" actors as Newshawk describes them.

My 2cents worth.
