The West Wing

Since September, channel 5 has been playing The West Wing from the beginning, 2 episodes a week at midnight on Saturday and Sunday. I've watched them all. Yes, all. It's been a great show. I've really wildly enjoyed it. Everyone always said it was a great show, but having missed it from the beginning, I didn't want to dive in mid-way through the series.

On Saturday, Zoe was kidnapped. On Sunday, the search for her began and John Goodman took over as president. Next weekend, channel 5 is starting over at the beginning. There's one more season out there in the world, and I have no idea when I'll ever be able to see it. This is the part where I whine really loudly.

I'm whining not only because I want to see the most recent season, but also because this marks one more show I'm all caught up on, and shortens the list even further of things worth watching on tv. No more Buffy. No more Angel. No more Friends (though that hadn't really been very worthwhile for a number of years). No Firefly. I think the only thing left out there that I watch with any regularity is Gilmore Girls and ER. I'd put Gilmore Girls on my A list, but ER is just kind of there. It hasn't been really great for a long time. Now it's just familiar. And sure, I still record Enterprise, but it's sad that the best part of Enterprise is whenever Porthos the beagle comes on. That dog sends me into apoplexy over how darned cute he is. Sadly, the show isn't worth my time.

Is there anything new coming this season? Anything with promise? Someone has to tell me stories! Someone has to spark my spririt with new characters! I guess I'll be reading more.

  • I'm sooooo with you on that West Wing cliffhanger. I need to know what happens next! (No, no one out there spoil it for me, please).

    I've been watching WW reruns on Bravo. For some reason, they've skipped the re-election debate and re-election episode twice now. Arrrrrgh!

  • Oh, and I'm totally with everyone else on the Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis plugs.
