very funny, very dark
This was very funny. The writing was crisp, and the acting was over the top. What a slightly savage viewpoint the author has. I can't wait to see the next script she turns out. Shira and Jason had good rapport--you could almost fee the ice between them. I loved the back and forth between them in the boardroom. I also especially loved Harold, with his droll take on work and his attempts to retire. The plot movement was fluid, so that when Shira picked the cat up and through it into to well to "make news" I burst out laughing. How well that parallels what I sometimes perceive is the real newsroom. I'd love to see this expanded even further.
