Watched a couple of classic Season 1 West Wing eps last night: mighty fine stuff too. "Let Bartlet be Bartlet" and "Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics". Glorious stuff: Toby saying Laurie's name when he's talking to POTUS just brings a twist to my stomach everytime.
[Aside: link to House! and to 24! - Lisa Edelstein playing Laurie now plays Cuddy and Reiko Aylesworth playing her "friend" (pah!) Janine went on to play Michelle Dessler]
Does anyone else feel the wind went out of the series with Sorkins departure? Is that a standard response? If so, why is it still staggering on?
I'm only about halfway through s5 at the mo, and s6 has only slightly been spoilered for me (though some have remarked it is better than s5 was). Am I wasting my time investing in its narrative?
