Type "Sorkinisms - A Supercut" in Youtube, and then tell me about "greatness and elevated entertainment."

I hope she's interviewed on Attack of the Show soon, because she never talks about it anymore and I'm curious if she has a somewhat snobby attitude toward it or misses it.

(cont) The fact is she is not well known to people who didn't watch G4. Most people watching the show think she is just some actress and don't associate her with anyone that is unintelligent. It's far more likely she went down on someone for the role. But yeah, I generally agree with you about her being stupid, but I wasn't even commenting on that. I was pointing out that you just were not quoting her correctly and therefore making it seem like her comment was spoken by a downsie

It's so surreal seeing Olivia Munn become so successful and in fucking Soderberg and Sorkin projects after seeing her in her Attack of the Show years. Good for her though!

It had a brilliant concept early on, but later in the series, this show sunk beneath some major liberal bias.

Ah so your take is that we shouldn't aspire to greatness and elevated entertainment because it's all been done before. Yes, we should all just descend into Idiocracy instead, where people like you will have no New Yorker/Politico educated and leftist opinions to complain about. You'll win and we'll all lose.

there is no such thing as 24 hours newsworthy stuff. the 24 hours news cycle has given us a lot of crap that is not newsworthy.

"Mouthbreather?" Really darling, you hurt my feelings. Fast-paced pontificating on the content of rehashed articles from Politico and the New Yorker doth not make superb television viewing - even for cable TV. Instead you have multiple characters sounding exactly the same, which is an indication of poor character versatility and development, which is not the same as lacking verbose dialogue and a healthy awareness of the thesaurus. Kind Regards, a simple "MouthBreather"

You missed the word 'aspires'. It's better to set out for greatness and fail than to continually aim low and allow our world to slip into Idiocracy. Sorkin is a writer and he writes well but he definitely falls victim to repeated tropes. That's something all writers suffer from.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry "Newsworthy i-i-s, by definition I believe is..." Happy? lol. I'm not saying she needs to have a double PhD to ACT a double PhD.. I'm saying Olivia Munn is widely regarded as being "stupid", hence why it's especially humorous that she plays a double PhD, which was clearly intentional in the casting process! I think you're missing my point here.

That's a fair point. But I don't think that's what Sorkin was aiming to do.

I find it quite interesting that the debut date of june 24th is also the first of five exact squares between Pluto in CAPRICORN and Uranus IN ARIES. wow! quite auspicious HBO

My only problem about Sorkin's writing is that everyone is hyper-articulate and full of snappy dialogue. Yet in the real world, even on the East & West Coast, not even half the professionals out there are hyper-articulate with snappy dialogue. That "Glen, Garry, Glenn, Ross" bullshit only happens in the movies.

One person's 'liberal bias' is another's truth that 'less liberal' politicians don't want to be put in the public domain.

Oh no, she plays it fine... it's just hilarious that they cast someone who is generally perceived to be one of the dumbest people in Hollywood as a double PhD. Way too coincidental lol I think that in itself is a brilliant joke.

Yeah, gonna miss her being funny. Now, she's at the "Grown Folks" table, which means she's not gonna wear a French maid costume and jump in a giant cream pie.

Dude.... Olivia Munn is so hawwwwwt.
Report spam or abuse
Well, not trying to be a nitpicker but she never actually said "is". It's just like someone saying, "Newsworthy u-u-uh, by definition.." Doesn't make them stupid, just, uh, makes them human. And, once again, you partially quoted her, otherwise her statement would make perfect sense. I highly doubt they intentionally hired someone "stupid" to play someone "smart". Who would have an obscure inside joke on their tv show? No one. (cont)

Olivia Munn plays a double Economics PhD. I wonder if this was intentionally ironic, or just horrible casting?

Way to not only misquote her, but to partially quote her.. Ladies and gentleman.. typical youtube commenter.

"Newsworthy is by definition I believe is" Ladies and gentlemen, Olivia Munn... playing a double PhD. *slow clap*
Report spam or abuse
You once again misquoted, and partially quoted her, you fucking moron. Watch the video again. Just because she doesn't have a double PhD in real life doesn't mean she can't ACT that she does. In a TV Show, with, you know.. ACTORS. And by the way, I dislike Olivia Munn greatly, I never liked her in aots.

oh, so they are saying the mainstream media has lost credibility? old news to me, the sheeple still watch it though

That's more of a problem with our society than it is with the show, and that's kind of the POINT. Aspire to something greater, mouthbreather.
