They've clearly changed the tone and approach for Season two, which is instantly evident by the more subdued theme music.

In the first season Will and the guys were the holier than thou moral crusaders, more responsible and thoughtful than all the other cavalier News stations who fuck up and make mistakes. In this season their role has been reversed and they've clearly screwed up big time - albeit with the best of intentions.

So it's really exploring a different side of telling the news, rather than carrying on down the same path. It might appease people who were slightly pissed at Sorkin's holier than thou in hindsight approach.

I base all of this on the first episode too, as I'm in the UK and have only seen the first one. Loved the first series too, but admit this second season premiere was trying to include so much info to set up the season ahead it was a little overwhelming. Although I like the fact that it looks like they're going to explore the consequences of the actions that climaxed season 1, rather than letting the team bask in their victories / defeats. And who doesn't love the American Taliban line!

Just out of interest, does anyone find pug faced Maggie attractive? Alison is a superb actress, but I can't help finding it more than a little unbelievable that two fairly eligible guys would be in love with her at the same time. Or even one for that matter. Does that baffle anyone else?


Stanley Kubrick was hired to fake the moon landing, but due to his perfectionism he made them film it on location. On the moon.
