Thoughts................for me its one of the best new shows of 2012.
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Liked the first episode.... Then it took a hard left turn. If I agreed with their point of view I'd prolly watch cuz it is good.
I think they talk too fast. Regular humans aren't that witty that quickly.
That being said, the content if the shows have been compelling IMO.

That's why austinr thinks it's so great.
I'd like to see an argument. Not a campaign speech. After the first episode (which was centered) it felt like it was one more medium to do what the national news media does. No facts just a point of view presented as fact.
Plus breaking bad is back!
Sorkin is the creator and it is going to be a left leaning show that is one sided like the West Wing.
This was not intended to be a political discussion but for the record the main character is a Republican. I wonder if anybody but Bobby actually has seen the program.
Sorkin couldn't present an argument without a major lefty slant to save his soul.

Breaking Bad wins.
President Obama is a Republican as well....
Stop guys. This is headed in the wrong direction.
Don't like it. Too idealistic, too many pseudo-intellectual characters, and as bobby put it "too many fast talkers"....don't like those people in real life and don't like them on tv
Wait till November, I predict global thermonuclear war on this board.
Upvote for getting the reference.
Not if Bobby let's me mod this board...
OK.............I think you need to come down off your high horse. You saw what happens here when a few extreme (politically) thinking posters high jack a thread. This is why an OT board is not a good idea..............IMHO
In addition (from personal experience) if someone "wants" to be a mod.................they shouldn't be a mod. Its very difficult and it is VERY much a thankless job...........you will not win no matter what you do.
I'm not on a high horse dude. I could really care less about getting thanked. I like to post here and want to keep it clean. Period. Modding this board of 13 people that actually post won't be that hard.

You really don't have any idea what you are talking about............if politics are brought up (and yesterday was an example) it will become a mess and will not be clean. Posters can't control or police themselves (and yes that includes me at times). The only way it works is if the first time politics is posted that person is banned from the OT board. It gets out of hand............Dude!
Which would be correct punishment,dude. I don't think sitting back and just letting the board go to shit is the way to go here.
You were the one who started the bickering.......... Read the posts on the thread. I have no desire to PM you..............DUDE!

When you insinuate that I'm on a high horse for wanting to help police a board that i helped found,that's combative. When you accent the word "dude" like you are,that's combative. I asked everyone to stop the politic talk. That's it. So chill out guy.
I will say it again...........get off your high horse and you will have no issues with me..........yes and the way Dude was used was combative.
Your use of the word "guy" here is combative.
I'm not on any kind of high horse. I don't think I'm better than anyone here. But I am on here more than most. I would be able to adequately monitor this board. So think what you will. I just want everyone to continue to enjoy conversation on this board without Religion and Politics. That's all.
