In the same vein as The Larry Sanders Show, The Newsroom exploits the foibles behind the scenes of a television program (this time a Canadian public newsroom rather than a talk show), using dark humor and incredible wit. Ken Finkleman stars as George Findlay, a news director with few morals, an affection for bran muffins, and a BMW constantly in need of repair. (One of the funniest running jokes of the series is his quarrels with his BMW dealer, who must submit to George's tasteless anti-German remarks; when the dealer refuses to send someone to pick up George's car in order to fix a broken window, George retorts, "Well, listen, you had no trouble sending people over to Poland.") Finkleman is supported by a wonderful cast, including a less-than-submissive intern (she refuses to run his errands), two producers who are happy to "alter" the news, and a somewhat clichéd anchorman who makes bubbleheaded on-air faux pas. This set contains all 13 episodes of the show. For those lucky enough to have seen The Newsroom on television, this is a wonderful chance to relive the hilarious moments. For those who have yet to see the program, this is the perfect opportunity to discover one of the most intelligent and clever television shows made. --Jenny Brown
