We just finished watching a milestone in television history, the final two episodes ever of The West Wing. Apart from M*A*S*H no other series kept the quality top notch for its entire run. There is a whole generation of people who have an idea how the American political system works because of this show.

We new what was coming having seen the episodes years ago just days after the US airing via downloads and having watched the episodes again on DVD. Nonetheless, they were classy and Donna finally got her Josh and CJ walked off into the sunset.

We cracked open a few bottles of Bollinger and some pate to mark the occasion. Now I will return to the dining table where we are serving roast duck and baked veggies and where more champagne will be drunk whilst we discuss the merits of the US political scene as we know it versus the fictitious Bartlett White House.

Good night.

I've never seen a single episode of The West Wing. Does that make me un(American)? Now, M*A*S*H however, is a different story. I own all eleven seasons on DVD and religiously watched the original airings and re-run after re-run growing up.

I have an idea. I'll order out to "Pacos", CPL Klinger's infamous hotdog emporium . . . you and the family are invited on July 4 for a cookout :-)

I still want Jed Bartlett as the real US president.

you may be excited to know that there is talk of a West Wing movie. The point in time for the movie is expected to take its cue from an episode of TWW.

You may remember a particular episode which starts with all the usual people getting together to open The Bartlett Library. Bartlett is there waiting with the others for The President, whom we never see but in shadow getting out of the limo.

Cross your fingers that filming starts late 2008 or early 2009.

is it gonna be a thing?

Hey hey-

remember me? long time, no chat. but i came across your lj and can only see the public posts, and this being one of them, i had to respond.

TWW is my all-time favorite show, I've got all of the seasons on DVD. I've been watching some of Season 3 this week, actually!

The episode you're referring to is Season 7, Episode 1 - and I still remember how anxious I was when I thought we were going to see who won the election in the season premiere!!!

I haven't heard anything about a movie, but I'd love to see it. I was thinking about how a movie could work, since the cast would be out in the world living their own private wouldn't be about TWW at all...unless they focused on Santos in office.

I do have my fingers crossed though! :)

hope all is well down under...
