|Presentation on HBO's The Newsroom Opens with Bigfoot as Apex Predator primate|
We were not disappointed.
Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) plays the resident internet geek/blogger on The Newsroom. He begins the episode talking about Bigfoot at a party, later in the episode he actually convinces the news team to watch his power point presentation on Bigfoot: The Apex Predator primate.
Just the fact that the character was not a punchline and sincere in his pursuit of Bigfoot is satisfying by itself, using terms like apex predator? Well, that's icing on the cake. Not only does apex predator sound cool, but it is great descriptor of Bigfoot. Apex predators (also known as top-level predators) are predators with no predators of their own, residing at the top of their food chain.
We were nice enough to piece together just the Bigfoot parts in the video below. While many of the Bigfoot arguments are familiar to us, the ones in this episode are not familiar (or even used) in mainstream media. Kudos to Aaron Sorkin for his portrayal of Bigfooters.
