A short but important update to say Holy. Mother. Of Crap. HBO has posted the Entire Pilot for Aaron Sorkin‘s The Newsroom on YouTube, for free. This is huge!
Folks, as a devotee, nay Acolyte of The West Wing, it pains me somewhat to say that I just don’t care about The Newsroom, but this? This is the actual HBO Network posting THEIR OWN SHOW on YOUTUBE, for everyone to watch FOR FREE! If you want to know why this is such a huge deal to me, go re-read “How Not To React To The Internet Co-Opting Your TV” and “Caprica: They Just Keep Blowing It Up.”
Then you’ll see why I file this action by HBO under “Dreams Do Come True.”
HBO’ve disabled embedding on the episode (obviously), but here’s the Direct Link.
