“The Don Quixote metaphor was the only thing
I knew about the show when I started. A group of
good people on an honorable uphill battle
that they’ll almost surely lose.”
– Aaron Sorkin,
describing his newest
HBO Drama, The Newsroom

Sorkin creates dialogue for the viewer whose IQ is greater than his shoe size.
You won’t see him on Dancing With the B-List Celebrities.
