Sleepwalking my way through life: There's a certain Sheen to it...



There's a certain Sheen to it...

15.30

Is anyone else sad that the West Wing has come to an end?

I began watching the extremely smart, quick witted show mid-way through the second series. At first I did not bother with it, watching it occasionally out of the corner of my eye whilst I read a book. To me it was just another Ally McBeal, an occasionally funny show that was too smart for my younger tastes. Besides, why waste my time with a show like that when I had plenty of Goosebumps books to read?

Ah, but then I fell in love. The show can be described as quick witted, but that does not do it justice. The wit is lightening speed, as in blink-and-you’ll-miss-it. I was entranced by how it was not only funny, it was smart and funny; and also how deep and complex the characters were (the fight between Josh and Toby in series seven literally broke my heart).

And don’t get me started on President Bartlett. If I had it my way, I’d attack Mount Rushmore with a chisel and draw a new face.

My government teacher in my senior year of HS showed random episodes from the WEst Wing, and I really enjoyed them. I wish I could watch them in order, but TV never reruns like that... alas!
