If You Loved 'The West Wing', Watch This. Now.


Trust me. Jeff Daniels and Aaron Sorkin go all out to hit us with some uncomfortable truth.

By the way, donít you think your friends might want to see this?

1. I'm watching it.

There seems to be a concerted effort to trash this show in the mainstream media (of course) but I will watch anything Aaron Sorkin puts out there. That diatribe at Northwestern in the show was a thing of beauty.

7. I love Sam Waterston's line at the end

"I fucking loved what you said at Northwestern - that's why I brought her." or something like that

Sorkin can even make me like Sam Waterston again

and Jeff Daniels even makes me want to go to Michigan . . . which I will do as soon as they get democracy back - I'm JOKING!

I've only watched it 2 or three times and actually, I think I am going to go watch it again ...

2. Enough. Must've been the shrooms talking.

On one level, brilliant beyond compare - particularly on Cable Teevee v1.2. But, that says more about the rest of what we've become and are watching.

I think we're in a really deep funk. But, even that doesn't last.

3. Aaron Sorkin may have done it again. The premiere was certainly a good one.

 

& HBO put it on YouTube, indicating that they might have a clue. We'll see about that, too.

8. Best show I've seen in a long time.

Smart writing. Assumes were not idiots. I like that kind of thing.
