I first saw an episode of The Newsroom on PBS. I was immediately struck by the genius of Ken Finkleman (the shows main star, writer and director). Where The Office shows you a satirical view of office life The Newsroom shows you an equal satirical view of a Toronto newsroom's life. From how "leads" in the news cast are chosen (i.e. higher body count) to the mundane issues that George the news director gets hung up on (getting a parking space in the buildings garage) you will find yourself laughing at others misfortune.
With all the genius in this show I was very disappointed by the three episode long finale. I guess it was trying to make a statement about the narcissistic ways of George but it just wasn't funny (thus the 4 instead of 5 stars). That being said, the last episode (where the characters are transported to a political situation) was again genius. This DVD is well worth your money.
