good. The show was very, very good when it dealt with the news and the
behind-the- scenes look at the workings of a television newsroom
And when it was bad, it was horrid.When the show dealt with the personal lives,
particularly the office romances, of the characters, it was very, very horrid.
The characters are all high-powered professionals with serious careers, but most
sixth graders handle romantic attractions better.
At the end of season two it seemed like all the story lines
had been tied up, and the series was going to its well-deserved eternal rest. But

the year since the last episode? I hope so. You can see it on HBO on Sunday November
9th, 2014 at 10pm.
