TV Trailer: The Newsroom

Season two of Game of Thrones premiered last night, and I should probably say something about that at some point, actually, but let's be honest: Once they showed the first trailer for their new Aaron Sorkin show The Newsroom, I could barely bring myself to care about anything else all night. Critic Alan Sepinwall referred to it as "Let Sorkin Be Sorkin," and while some seem to think it looks too Sorkiny... to me, there's basically no such thing. I am so excited about this:

First, did you notice the "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" motif in the instrumentals? HAH! Second, we've almost got Sorkin Bingo right there in the trailer, except maybe for Daddy Issues, and I'm sure those will show up soon enough. Third, is there going to have to be less semi-requited longing than on previous Sorkin shows, to meet the HBO sex quota? Hmm. And fourth, IS IT JUNE YET?
