Looks like smart TV shows are coming back.
I've also seen the first two episodes of this well-written, well-cast show. As previously stated, if you like Aaron Sorkin's work on the West Wing, you will really like this show.
Finally, smart TV comes back. Heavy on the dialog, this shows doesn't "talk-down" to its viewers.
I'm glad to hear that HBO will keep this show going for at least two seasons. I just hope that it stays on HBO, and doesn't get transferred to a networked prime-time channel (ie: ABC, CBS, NBC, etc). Doing so would water it down to the point that it would become irrelevant and "sanitized" for the masses.
