Or "I am on a West Wing Binge"
(Okay, DVD world. The show hasn't been on the air in years. Whatever.)
I think I've watched 16 episodes of West Wing this week... And I didn't watch any Sunday or Tuesday.
That's right, I watched like 8 Monday and 8 yesterday.
I'd call that a binge.
BUT I LOVE IT!
I watched the first season or two before life just got too busy to keep up (plus you just don't always control the TV in college!) but I'd forgotten how absolutely STELLAR the writing is.
Go watch one now. I'll wait.
No really. Go watch the beginning of the pilot, where all of the main characters are called back to the office with the cryptic message "POTUS in bicycle accident". One of my absolute favorite lines?
CJ's asking if there's anything she can say besides "he rode his bicycle into a tree" and Leo responds--
"What do you want from me? 'While riding a bicycle on vacation, the president came to a sudden arboreal stop'?"
This coming in the middle of Leo trying to get hold of someone at the Times to explain to them that #17 down in the daily crossword is simply wrong. :D
Now I'm a conservative republican (more or less-- I actually tend to avoid politics at all cost), and I swear that the show's creator hates people like me, and I sure don't agree with a lot of the politics, but dang it all, it's a great show.
I think I'd better put Season 3 on hold... There are only 6 more episodes in Season 2 for me to watch. :D
