The Newsroom, season 2

Most TV-shows need at least a few episodes, sometimes up to a whole season, to find their pace. While 'The Newsroom' started off as a 55-minute journalism-version of Sorkin's previous facetious masterpiece 'The West Wing', it then veered off into The Dark Side, abounding with neuroses, war crimes, childhood drama - and, sadly, two very predictable love affairs. 

All the fun is gone from the dialogue, but the sharpness and acumen are still on, so of course I will be watching the third - and final!? - season as soon as I can.
