One writer puts The Farnsworth Invention on his "best" side of his best/worst 2007 theater ledger:
8. The Farnsworth Invention
Okay. Historical liberties aside, Aaron Sorkin’s play about the patent race on television is both inspiring and compelling.
Of course, I can’t help but comment: if he thought the play was "both inspiring and compelling," what would he make of the storty without thouse "historical liberties"???
