Postby lordpunkmonk on Sat Oct 04, 2008 11:52 am

my mom bought herself every season of west wing and I am now watching through them.
if you are unfamiliar with west wing do yourself a favor and rent the first season (or buy it if you want) it is a phenomenal show and worth watching.

it is more of an attempt to see if the mention of this show sparks a conversation.

honestly I asumed more people had seen the show.

I have been asking around school and nobody has even heard of it.

No one at your school has heard of it because they were too young to appreciate it when it was on the air.

It was unbelievable, I love it, and I'm watching a rerun on Bravo right now.

A couple of weeks ago there was an Op/Ed in the NYTimes, Aaron Sorkin wrote an interview between President Bartlett and Barack Obama. It was great, you should dig it up.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

...No one at your school has heard of the West Wing? It's only been off the air for a couple years!

I watched a few episodes and was favorably impressed, but I never got into it. I need to buy season 1, since I can't sit down and watch TV on schedule, and I might actually finish the show then.

My Film and TV class was shown the pilot as an example of excellent scriptwriting. I found it really enjoyable, and I was in the right frame of mind to understand why I found it so.

I never watched it when it was on, I don't know why.

Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.
