Maybe I'm suffering from overexpectation, but I was pretty unimpressed. We saw Stoppard's "The Real Thing" some time back and were amazed at how GOOD it was. I was hoping for the same. Press clippings on this show have all been good - but I think I have that one figured out. The main characters are reporters/correspondents so the reviewers (who are part of the press) really liked the show.
Acting was ok. Special note on the younger reporter - this actor was very good - probably the highlight. Everybody else seemed like they were walking through their lines.
Sorry - I'm a big Remy Bumppo fan, but this one didn't do it for me.
