5-sentence review of The Newsroom, Episode 4

Alison Pill stars in “The Newsroom.”

Season 1, Episode 4: “I’ll Try to Fix You”

5. Why is it that the relationship emotion most exploited by fiction is pining?

4. Will (Jeff Daniels) pines for Mac (Emily Mortimer) and Maggie (Alison Pill) pines for Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) and they all are hooked up with other people.

3. I suppose there’s something to the fact that people always want you think you can’t have.

2. But it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to see a healthy relationship that starts well, continues with a few hassles but is mostly solid, supportive and secure.

1. If Aaron Sorkin is going to spend a show sermonizing about reality TV and broadcast news ethical lapses, he might also turn his eye toward the crap his creating with his soap operatic in-show relationships.
