Waaaaaaay more watchable than TWW s5. And in fairness to The Newsroom, it found its groove by the end of its second season. It took some time, but it got there.

Brisbane’s Festival Hall was razed to make way for an apartment building. Somehow, that fate doesn’t seem as tragic as this.

(I'd also like to note that I think John Wells is generally a force for good in TV. His work on ER was exceptional. But the West Wing wasn't a good fit.)

The season that followed lacked any spark or vitality. The only times the show had any life was during stunts - the govt shutdown and the white house disease protocol closure episodes.

Ultimately it doesn't matter. John Wells took a plot that was rich with dramatic possibility and then delivered a dramatically inert two hours that placed every character and relationship in contrast to everything we'd seen of them for four years.

I think it's worth checking out. People either like it a lot or not. It's always worth investigating any show/movie/book that inspires such passion.

It's never too late. Like any tv show from 20 years ago, it has a few moments that are a little culturally weird. But it mostly holds up pretty well.

Anyone who complains about Aaron Sorkin's writing has never watched season 5 of The West Wing.

There was also a second attempt featuring Radar. It was to be titled W.A.L.T.E.R

I always thought the purpose of rebooting known IP was that there's an audience who remember the IP.

In cheerier news, SBS is screening "Spotlight" tonight. So TV is not a complete Northern football wasteland.

Are they talking about the Trump people or The Lincoln Project?

I don't get the anger over Peanuts. It's free for a few days on Apple TV+

Too soon for FAM. I'm expecting to hear a Jan/Feb announcement for it. Even then, that's not the right time for it. It's a US summer show.
