    I think one of the pleasures of revealing secrets is the thrill of paranoia.

    And after all, religion is based on revelation, revealing the secret meaning of the world. And the headlines of popular magazines constantly tell of personal revelations being made.

    We love to have secrets revealed whether by God or the local gossip.

    And our travel industry is constantly revealing 'a best kept secret'.
    Julian Assange certainly loves the thrill. It is a surprisingly good film, close in feeling to '23', with a hint of 'Hackers'.

    I'd check it out.
    Sorkin still lives inside his own ass. The show is just too flat to be that pretentious. I think the election coverage will be entertaining, but also annoying, especially for Republicans.

    I've never really expected him to live anywhere else. Yes it is very pretentious (I found the coverage about Occupy to be hilariously up its own ass), but there is something there still. This show may be more bad Sorkin than good, but enough of the good moments come through (for me at least) to keep me from dismissing it entirely. The toned down intro is much better, and I think the show itself a little bit better. That's not a very high bar to hop over, but the potential in the show if a few more things come together keeps me coming back.

    I would sure like to hear Will present a conservative policy position that he agrees with this season.

    I'm into the subject matter of the show more than most (politics, news, Republicans and the like), and that may be what pushes it over the top for me. But I can't help but think if Sorkin can step back a little and let someone help write Will who actually understands conservative ideology, that this could turn into one of the better shows out there. Whether Sorkin is comfortable giving up that much creative control is another story. If we could tone down the general "Sorkin-ness" just a few notches and balance the show out I think it has real potential.

    The reason The West Wing worked was that the President therein happened to be a Democrat, and Sorkin knows how to write Democrats.

    He has no idea how to write Republicans. The scene from season one where he finds the gun in the girls purse is instructive.

    So far, the only thing that would lead me to believe Will is a conservative is the fact that he's said so. Besides that, the whole POV of the show is liberal.

    It just doesn't make sense.

    Orange is the new black on Netflix!!!! Too close to home but really good. I read the memoir it's based on though and they definitely added a ton of dramatic shit that wasn't in there.
