Jeremy claims that NASCAR is the world's most popular sport. In reality, while it might be extremely popular in the US, it is not in the top 15 most popular sports worldwide. Even by number of total fans, viewers of a single event, or by accumulated fans, NASCAR does not register. (In actuality Soccer by far the world's most popular sport, by any definition, with over half of the world's population watching it.) Jeremy may have meant to say that car racing (including Formula 1, NASCAR, etc.) has the highest TV ratings worldwide. See more »

one of the top 20 episodes of TV, ever
27 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having just reviewed a couple of bad TV shows, I had to remind myself sometimes I like TV. Rome, this show, and a handful of others make television into art, into what it has the potential to be but so seldom is. And this is my favorite episode of the show, in which black football players refuse to play under the confederate flag, and Casey (Krause) assumes his black boss will do a broadcast editorial on this issue--and is surprised and hurt and what he hears back. The episode explores racism, expectations, friendship, morality--it does a lot in a very few minutes.

I love when Sorkin twangs my heartstrings as he did in this episode. Boy, I cried at the end.
