Movie Reviews

Intelligent, wry satire
A. Helfer | Pennsylvania | 04/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I chanced across this series as it was airing on the local PBS affiliate. Ken Finkleman's George Findlay is a gem, an egomaniac and hypocrite. The supporting cast is also wonderful. The writing is sharp. If you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out. Favorite episodes include "The Fifty" and "Anchors Away.""
Some of the best Canadian TV ever
Sigrid Macdonald | Ottawa | 02/18/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Truly, I don't know why Ken Finkelman isn't as famous as Ricky Gervais. He is hilarious as George Findlay, self-absorbed and neurotic news director, who's too busy thinking about ratings, bran muffins and his inability to secure a decent parking space to process or care about anthrax and potential nuclear meltdowns.

Although some episodes fell short for me, mainly because I'm not keen on the surreal aspects, in general, I enjoyed the entire series tremendously, and would highly recommend it. It has a stellar cast and crisp, original writing."
Before 'The Office'

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you think you're cool because you were into the Britcom 'The Office' before the American version aired, you've got to check out 'The Newsroom' which is its Canadian predecessor. Ricky Gervais rocks but Ken Finkleman taught him how to do it- well not really but you know what I mean."
