    Anybody watch this last night? I quite loved it. Can't wait for next week with Munn to be on finally :cool:

    I did. I liked it, and I sort of envy the actors when they get to deliver those Sorkin-esque diatribes every episode. I have read some of the criticism as well, and I can't help but also sort of agree - the premise of a rich, white, hetero guy finding the courage to be an "opinionated dips hit" on television doesn't exactly inspire boundless admiration in me.

    That said, it's Sorkin, and I also anxiously await the arrival of Olivia Munn. I like it a lot better as a news show drama than the backstory beginning about this guy finally saying what's on his mind, now that he's a bajillionaire and doesn't really have much to lose.

    Agreed. I saw all of the criticism and didn't understand it. I like Sorkin's work pretty good. I think it'll replace the lack of Mad Men in my life for the time being.
