I’m now completely addicted. Thank you Stephanie. Last weekend I found myself sitting in the Seattle airport waiting for my delayed flight, watching my Netflix copy of The West Wing, Season 2, episode 1. I’m now about halfway through Season 2. I have to say that so far, my favorite from this season was the episode where Prez Bartlet quotes every stringent law from Leviticus and other such Levite-law books of the Old Testament in order to put the radio host in her place. And then tells her to stand up in the presence of the President.
I love the little details of this show. Like how in The Lame Duck episode, after the president exits the office for the evening, there’s a man going around turning off all the lights. That’s gotta be someone’s job, right? Conserving energy in the White House. It is all in the details.
And my favorite character so far is Charlie. He’s just so calm all the time. But then, I also really love Donna. Because she is the exact opposite of calm.
