one of the top 20 episodes of TV, ever

Having just reviewed a couple of bad TV shows, I had to remind myself sometimes I like TV. Rome, this show, and a handful of others make television into art, into what it has the potential to be but so seldom is. And this is my favorite episode of the show, in which black football players refuse to play under the confederate flag, and Casey (Krause) assumes his black boss will do a broadcast editorial on this issue--and is surprised and hurt and what he hears back. The episode explores racism, expectations, friendship, morality--it does a lot in a very few minutes.

I love when Sorkin twangs my heartstrings as he did in this episode. Boy, I cried at the end.
