I also don't think it's a good binge show so take breaks.

I wouldn't say I'm binge-ing it, I'm watching about an episode every 1.5 days. If I take more of a break than that then I'm just dropping the show because it's SOOOO BORING

I just got to the moment in the penultimate episode of the newsroom where Charlie has, I am assuming, a heart attack set to some awful wailing song and then they reveal that will was talking to ghost dad in his jail cell all episode and my head involuntarily tilted backwards while I laughed out loud.

I don't understand why this is a plot point that Aaron Sorkin loves so much.

Question, since I'm interested in watching it:
Would it appeal to people who have never seen the original series and have no connection to any of these characters or is it more of a "you get a lot more out of it by having seen all of the original show."

I never watched the cartoon as a kid, for instance.

I didn't either. The new one is fine but I'm sure you get more out of it if you're running on pure nostalgia.

I waxed and waned on The Good Wife -- there was apparently A LOT of behind the scenes drama starting around Season 4, which means that cast members and plots randomly get dropped or end up going into weird dead ends -- two of the regulars end up being unable to have scenes together because of some of this, resulting in some very weird green screen when one has to be written off.

The Good Fight, on the other hand, is one of my favourite shows. It starts out in Good Wife territory, but then, seemingly by design, marks the slow but steady descent of its cast into Alice In Wonderland territory. If the final season doesn't end with Diane becoming a Mad Max style road warrior, I'll be severely confused and disappointed.

I'm also interested to see if it's worth watching. Every single "trailer" I've seen is a 5 second video that consists of 2 seconds of a woman doing something and then 3 seconds of "ON HBO MAX"

It's about the (mis)adventures of 4 college freshmen roommates. It's a Mindy Kaling show, so it has her sensibility and edge.

We just watched the five episodes over the last two nights. My wife loves it, because she went to kind of an elite liberal arts college and never felt like she fit in there... and now she's a professor there. So she really relates to the setting. I don't find it terribly funny (never was a big Mindy Kaling fan), but I haven't tapped out yet. It feels like an NBC sitcom, except with cursing, nudity, sex, and general raunchiness.

It's going to take another season or so at this level, but if Wheel of Time keeps this up I could see the fandom/popularity quickly getting to the point where people say (this is a better show than GOT). And from a story/acting perspective they sure as poo poo would be right.

We're halfway through the first season, episode 4 is better than the rest and they're all solid, and we haven't even gotten to a ton of the very juicy stuff coming soon.

Ah, thank god. See I read that Peter Jackson had to fight D+ to include the Beatles cussing on that new doc he did, and the streaming services self-censoring to be more family friendly (which is essentially what basic cable does now) would loving ruin TV again. Stellan Skarsgard also said some poo poo like that is already going on in an interview the other day.

lol some guy in the comments is immediately like "this guy is arguing for capitalism, against corporatism." Impressive.

Anyway what will it take to start breaking these companies up or start nationalizing them? Anything? Can't we do a quick revolution because surely everyone wants better movies and shows again.
