I'd be down for a coordinated group / thread rewatch
Well I just said it would probably be a bit before I went for re-watch number 4 but if this happened I'd be down.
but a close second, on tww, is mr. joe willis of ohio. on every watch-through, I am reminded of how much I love that episode. his dynamic with toby is one of my favorites. also like leo standing up to jed in the oval office while discussing his separation - another look at jed bartlet's unpredictable/awful temper early in the series, a night the culminates with his excoriating zoey for no reason whatsoever.
I would also put Justice Evelyn Baker Lang up there with best single-episode characters. Season 5 was a hot mess, but The Supremes is up there as one of my faves. A big part of that is thank to Glen Close (and William Fichtner).
woot canal episode today
a weird episode. one of the funnier ones, but also tempered by the racist cops who end up getting away with it storyline.
Isn't that the episode with the secret plan to fight inflation
So, not only do I have a secret plan to fight inflation, but now I won't defend it?
Whenever I see/hear the words "secret plan", no matter what the context, my brain automatically adds "to fight inflation".
A secret pwan to fwight infwation???
I took one of those dumb online "which fictional character are you most like" personality quizzes, and came away with Sam Seaborn as a 98% match. Despite being told for years to watch The West Wing and never doing so, I am incredibly vain and wanted to know if that was a compliment, so I finally started the show tonight.
I think I'm really going to enjoy this lovely, escapist fantasy series about people who aren't malevolent sociopaths running the United States government.
Just remember, once you're done, go into the US Politics thread and hear about how it's everything wrong with government today because liberalism is the devil!
(but go watch the show, it's awesome!)
Dude it's so good, I just watched it for the first time last summer and have watched it 2 more times since.
Just the obligatory note for new folks -- it takes a bit of a dip in Season 5 and the first half of Season 6... but the second half of Season 6 all the way through the end is cracking...
I would say that getting Sam is a compliment. Not quite as high a compliment as getting MCH or Mr Willis, but those would be nigh attainable levels of greatness
Being Sam is definitely a compliment!
Sorry, Pym, you won't get that for awhile, but it is a compliment.
As to best multi episode character, it's a tie for me between Lord John Marbury and Lionel Tribbey.
Multi episode probably goes to Joey Lucas, or Oliver Babish.
I lean towards that on the strength of
In the case I’d Joey, I consider more of a recurring cast member right up there with Zoey Bartlet so that’s why I didn’t name her. Oliver though has one of the best introductions when he meets Jed and Leo- but I don’t know if you can compare that to “I will kill people today, Leo! I will kill people with this cricket bat, which was given to me by Her Royal Majesty Elizabeth Windsor, and then I will kill them again with my own hands.”
edit - never mind, i misread you.
Yeah, the cold open to "Bad Moon Rising" is one of my absolute all time faves...
Why did Jordan end up in Mandyville? I thought she and Leo were great together.
She was a guest star (and a bigger named one at that).
Fun fact, she's Monty Hall's daughter.
