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>

Wit of the Wild Horses
15 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an outstanding episode!! The humor, suspense and relatable human behaviors grips as much as it compels. The emotional jargon between Will McAvoy, Mackenzie MacHale, Jim Harper, Maggie Jordan and her boyfriend Don Keefer reaches a level of honest tension that is refreshingly addictive. An added plus is the show's use of real current events to assist in making this world believable. Aaron Sorkin has really created a gem here and I hope it continues to grow into the valuable vault of watchability it has already become. I believe it will. "I'll Try to Fix You" has sealed the deal for me. "The Newsroom" is by far one of the best new shows on television right now and its subject matter is long overdue.
