Its way too far left. Self important drival. Like Jeff Daniels performances but that chick is horrendous.

The ex girlfriend. She's a rediculous and unbeleivable character.

Good point. I'm not a huge fan of her either to be honest.

I mean she's supposedly been dodging bullets in a war zone for several years and they expect the audience to believe that she's some kind of emotional basket case in a cable newsroom.
Just rediculous writing.

I never took him seriously, and his performance is amazing. Reason why I love the show - him, Charlie, and that blonde girl is pretty cool.

soooo your general point is that anybody whose ever been in war zones typically doesn't have emotional breakdowns when they get back?

great analysis

When you've been through hell you get some perspective. You don't let petty things bother you.
Her character is not believable. It just doesn't work.
Love Jeff Daniels character, but that chick is a poorly written and performed character.

Eh I can deal with her nit being a good character but your heavily under estimating the female physche. And this idea you have that All people have the same reactions is just false. I can introduce you to some people that have come back from Iraq that are hardened emotionally from it but also others who are broken from it.

I don't mind your opinion, just your reasoning for it. I actually think they portray the whole perspective thing your referring to, in her "business" side.

Quite frankly I hate the blonde and that whole love story. I think it's way too forced. But I do love the show and Harry's (Jeff Daniels) character is greatly written and acted. It's a wishful thinking show

I've been watching but I'm not sure for how much longer. Yes the blonde chick is also a waste of airtime. Focus on Jeff Daniels and stop being so leftist. There are only a few more months with Barack anyways.

It's not about being "leftist".....he admitted he's more conservative. The point of the ENTIRE SHOW is to call out all the lying bull****, on both sides of the spectrum, not showing political association. And I love the show for that reason. The theme of the show is basically "I dont care who you are. Stop lying to the public"...

Haven't gotten the chance to watch the last 2 episodes, but I really think I am going to later on in the week. Thank god it's over so I can catch up with 2 more episodes before anything good in the fall comes along.

Yet nothing he does or says is conservative at all. Its a show written by those on the left suggesting that "real republicans are simple people that agree with Democrats. Its a rediculous point of view. . People on the left always fail to understand what real conservatism is. Its a belief in the individual and not the government. Its an essential belief in the human spirit. He knocks the tea party and calls them all kinds of names when he fails to understand what the "Tea Party" movement is. Its born of a basic frustration that after the stimulus, we have no accountablity from our ghovernment, that half of all Americsans were completely shut out of the process. And that its our children who will bear the brunt. The very people who tend to support Democrats (younger people) are the ones who will be the most negatively impacted by run away spending.
This show is simply a Democratic view of what a good Republican should be in their minds. To them the answer is a Democrat.
And that chick was even more obnoxious in yesterday's show. I had to turn it off after the first 30 minutes.

actually, it attacks the fascist tea party and real republicans who have gone along with them out of fear of losing popularity. it slams everyone who just goes on air and talks complete bull****.

nobody attacks the liberals as much because for the most part their inept, rather than malicious.

Not going to comment on your complete misunderstanding of the tea party movement. You're just buying into the shallow nonsense. My point about the show is thats its far left leaning and naive.

That $16 trillion will be your responsibility. I'm 54 (well just about) and that bill won't be on me. The irony is that its the young Obama supporters who will bear the brunt of our national debt. But he does sing Al Green songs in tune and has a nice smile. I guess thats the new criteria.

Well, I mean....your generation is to blame for pretty much everything that is wrong with our country, so.....mine is always going to have to deal with it, so thanks.

Not going to disagree with you on that, but continuing to support the same mistakes from the past seems nuts to me.
