Stunning -- just stunning
25 August 2013 | by csts1See all my reviews

This is unbelievably great television.

I don't understand the Sorkin haters.

Anyone who can watch this episode without admiring Sorkin is beyond my comprehension.

And the acting and direction live up to his vision.

Truly superb.

Everyone in our living room was simply riveted to their seats the whole time.

I've been biting my fingernails waiting to see whether there were really only 2 more episodes after this or whether we'd all have a reprieve. I understand that Sorkin announced on Friday that he'd been extended for another season. Thank goodness. HBO, you have an extraordinary show here. Well done, all.
