Storyline

New Year's Eve, 2010: Don encourages Jim to hang out with Maggie's roommate; Maggie objects. Will, in a tuxedo, decides to be sociable at the station's party, chatting up a visiting columnist. He objects to something she ways, she tosses her glass of Champagne in his face, and a couple days later, a local gossip column accuses him of groping her. A similar event and newspaper report happen a couple days later. What's going on? Then, on Saturday, January 8, by a fluke, everyone's at the station when a major story breaks. Will everyone keep their heads? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I'll try to fix you review -7-16-12
16 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sorokin has a WIDE breadth of materials to work with here. The scummy media droids have left real and rational news professionals materials in piles on the floor just to pick and go bang a Pulitzer out once or twice a week! The neo-nut media has squandered our journalistic future, and Sorokin knows this. The episodes could go in a thousand different directions but seem to be trending toward something that makes sense. The alleged 'real critics' over at acid baths like Variety think this is Sorokin on drugs... I've got a different vision.

Good solid cast -wonderful story material -all the intrigue of any fortune 100 tech company boardroom - and disjunction of all pee-party, Beck permanently labeled as a criminal liar, and disdain for ever thing trivial, backwards looking, and prejudiced in any form...

I've it high hopes for Sorokin here. The clowns at Variety WILL eat their shorts on this one?
