Liveblogging the Newsroom’s Take on the 2013 Boston Marathon

9:37 p.m.: This:

9:35 p.m.: Let us get that pronunciation of Watertown again, please, Jeff Bridges?

9:28 p.m.: Celtics fans? That’s your reference in April 2013 for “high volume of people in Boston”?

9:18 p.m.: Honestly, when did HBO come into town and film this stuff? In between Olive Kitteridge and Wahlberg taking town over?

9:14 p.m.: That’s actually South Station.

9:13 p.m.: Aaron Sorkin RetCons a prediction of the manhunt.

9:09 p.m.: Having weird flash backs to that moment of checking news, understanding Tweets and trying to figure out who knew what – actually applauding Sorkin’s writing on this part of the concept.

9:04 p.m.: A few tough moments already, but also some discrepancies. I’d be pretty hard pressed to see any NY media person refer to the finish line as “At the Lenox Hotel”.

9:03 p.m.: We get the stark blank title card of “Boston” shortly before Will McAvoy is about to launch into a tirade on women and marriage before he is interrupted by McKenzie noting the odd view of an explosion on one of the random TVs in the Newsroom showing the marathon.

9:01 p.m. Here. We. Go.
