Storyline

A news team attempts to create a news show that reports the news in an ethical and reasonable way. They take real, newsworthy events from our world as they're happening (such as bin Laden's justified killing, NSA spying, etc) and report on them as if they were an actual news station that followed rational and moral guidelines, in a biting criticism of our popular press and a clever blurring of art and reality. Written by Guy T

Goofs

The very beginning of the title sequence shows the Soviet Sputnik flying with its antennas oriented away from the Earth. The Sputnik rotated, which is why that design of antenna array was chosen as it allows equal transmission of radio signals in all directions. See more »

BEST SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN
3 February 2020 | by treehuggie-15653See all my reviews

I can not express how much this show means to me. I cried my eyes out. I could not stop watching this show, I don't understand why there is only three seasons. It is the best show I have ever seen before
