I had a chance to watch Sunday Night’s episode on The Newsroom from HBO last night.  While the skipping back and forth in years is a bit confusing at times, the Maggie storyline was heartbreaking.  The poignancy of a simple blonde comment broke me when I realized the significance in the final scene.  This is such good television, it should be recognized as one of the best.

Speaking of good television, “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” continues to give me a heart racing thrill every week, last night’s move across a gorge and eel hunt was awesome.  Bear made the right call by eliminating Wilson and Robin.

Unfortunately they just were not as strong as the other pairs, but they went for a great adventure.  My prediction for final 2 pairs have changed a bit, they are….

On another note, NBC’s Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls continues to impress.  The show mixes everything that is great about Survivor and The Amazing Race, I cannot say enough good stuff about this show!  If you aren’t watching you should be, just for the gorgeous scenery alone.

HBO’s The Newsroom began it’s sophomore year two weeks ago.  It continues to be the smartest, quickest show on television.  I don’t understand why the EMMY people overlooked this show when nominations were made but they did.  Check it out if you haven’t seen it…. The Newsroom is awesome TV!
