Tread Perilously — The Newsroom: Oh Shenandoah

Tread Perilously makes its first trip into the wild world of Aaron Sorkin with an episode he had to call “Oh Shenandoah.” To be honest, we’re not completely sure why he did that.

While Will sits in the clink and refuses to give up his source, Charlie Skinner continues the relentless march toward Twitter integration on the network. Sloan has words with the new app guy while Don tries to convince a rape victim not to confront her attacker on air. Meanwhile in Russian, Jim and Maggie play at being Jim and Pam from The Office while trying to catch an interview with Edward Snowden.

Erik discovers a new level of disdain for Sorkin with this, his second complete unit of Sorkin’s writing after The Social Network. He and Justin discuss the surprising work of Olivia Munn and Sam Waterston — once Erik learns why their characters seem to be respectively under and over-performed. Also, Justin dismisses Jim and Maggie as toxic people.
