I love a lot of Sorkin's dialog. For example, the first three seasons of West Wing are pretty excellent. However, sometimes he gets too far up his own ass. The Social Network was really good, but the opening scene grates. Also a lot of the dialog from Newsroom.
I fucking love the opening scene of "The Social Network", in fact I have told people who haven't seen the film if nothing else -- they should watch the opening scene. Other Sorkin works which I really like, "The American President" which was almost a dry run for "The West Wing", "Molly's Game" which also has a killer opening scene/sequence, "A Few Good Men" has several great scenes and lines. I need to get around to watching "Steve Jobs", I hope he did as well in that.
