Imagine you were sitting at work with little to do, knowing all the while that you had a TON of stuff to do at home. Geese-a-Louise! It’s enough to make a grown man weep.
Speaking of weeping, can you believe The West Wing ends this Sunday? It is (was) a show on TV that gives (gave) me optimism… and not just because it portrays (portrayed) a Democrat in the White House. Whether it was realistic or not, it’s portrayal of politicians with a genuine will to do good, for the good of the people, was a weekly dose of political optimism. Throw in the snappy, intelligent dialog, and you had a great show. With a casting overhaul to freshen the show up, I thought it was primed for a ratings resurgence.
Too bad everyone stopped watching… just when it was getting really good again. Then again, John Spenser’s death left some awfully big shoes to fill.
All together now…
