Aaron, I am not a fair weather fan who found you with The Social Network or Moneyball. You caught my eye with A Few Good Men and American President. Where I really fell head over heels was Sports Night. That ONE person watching in the state of Colorado was ME. It was magical - where the hell was everyone? It was too smart, too fast for most and who knew it wasn't a sports show? If it was made now, you would have the good sense to market it to HBO. I own the DVDs and in times like these, when you disappoint me so with Newsroom, I can pop one in and remember a time when your activism was balanced with plot and characters and HUMOR. Even when cocaine took over your life, you still had enough presence of mind to know you cannot win people over to your point of view until you make them like the characters and laugh with them. Now you hit us over the head with political opinion from scene one. No wine, no meal, no "Did you know that 'momentarily' means both IN a moment and FOR a moment?" Aaron. WTF? I listened to aeons (I looked it up -it's spelled that way) of Toby's rants because I knew you would give Ainsley 45 seconds to rebutt. Studio 60's Matt was balanced with Harriet. You were left politically but you were a writer first. Aaron, go back to writing. You are clever enough to win us all over to your cause but you have to be charming and witty and generous. I actually walked out on you last night. I couldn't bear to wait and see if perhaps Jane Fonda or Sam Waterston would become the voice of reason (THAT would be acting.) I still love you. I still want us to be together always but you've got to at least try to write like you still like us out here. I will watch and hope while I memorize the words to the song you parodied in The Cold Open. Come back to me, A.
