West Wing Reminisce
I don't know how widespread this is, but where I live, CBS airs West Wing at midnight on Saturday nights, usually older episodes too. So I sit through SNL until after Weekend Update, then watch WW. "Noel" was on last night. I've seen that one so much but still love it every time. I'm pretty sure I posted something along these lines in west_wing_fans relatively recently, but I think it merits a second mention. The power and emotion... beyond words. Brad Whitford acted the crap out of it. My best friend is also a Winger, but didn't start watching until the end of the second season; I believe she's seen the first season by now via DVD, but not much of the second. I taped and showed her "Noel" in March. It was great to see her reaction to it.
Do you guys prefer the episodes with emphasis on character drama or politics? Given, Sorkin often had a good mix of both in each ep, and they coincided as well, but still curious.
Added bonus, I love "Carol of the Bells".
