“The Newsroom” Ended With A Kick

To decompress from the relentless energy of the VMAs I watched last night’s episode of “The Newsroom.” I’m not going to give away anything, because those of you who think that “Breaking Bad” is the only drama worth watching on Sunday night should also be watching “The Newsroom” and I don’t want to spoil anything. But I will say that the final scene of the episode, in which characters of Sam Waterson, Emily Mortimer, Jeff Daniels, and Jane Fonda (pictured) had a confrontation, was absolutely delectable. And the show’s closing line, uttered by Fonda in her best throwback-to-her-glory-years authoritativeness, was a wonderful smack. Oh, and this season’s plotline about chemical weapons couldn’t be more topical.
