A little over a year ago HBO began airing what initially seemed to be a slam-dunk: an hour-long dramedy about the cable news biz written by one of the greatest television writer/producers of our generation: Aaron Sorkin. The Newsroom first teased us with a stunning trailer showing series star Jeff Daniels going off on a young college student when she asks him why America is the greatest country in the world.

America is not the greatest country in the world anymore.”

That’s right – the awful time period between seasons.
The last time we hit this point it was almost a year and half before we found ourselves back in 1960s Manhattan, but thanks to the extended contract battles of that era I think we can rest assured that early 2013 will bring us back in touch with our favorite characters from Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce(?).

Sweet tits of heaven I am speechless by what I have just seen…

(momentary pause)

I have now let a few minutes go by and am no longer speechless, but holy crap – last night’s episode of Mad Men? I can’t even begin to describe how stunningly beautiful and well crafted it was. And I’m trying to chill out a little bit but I’m so ridiculously tempted to call this my new favorite episode of television ever.
