I just wanted to put it out there that I finally got to see Network and I have to say I totally agree with the reviews. The show itself was ok as were Tatiana Maslaney and Tony Goldwyn. The set was interesting, but ultimately I didn’t like what they did with the reality show-style cameras (people who have seen it know what I’m talking about). Having said that, Bryan Cranston was spectacular. I can’t imagine him losing the Tony. It’s really a tour de force performance that can’t be rivaled.February 3, 2019 at 9:53 am #1202760163
