West Wing Addicts Anonymous

8 Jul

Hi.  My name is Emily.  I am addicted to West Wing.  Yes, it is the television show that was on from 1999 until 2006, but I was a little late in “the club.” 

One of my best friends, Ch-narla, was/is a West Wing nut.  She told me how good it was.  She told me I should watch it and I never did.  That is, until now.

The West Wing

It now comes on Bravo (the channel Mojo loves to hate) daily.  I DVR it daily.  I love to watch it!  My kiddos, on the other hand, absolutely despise for me to watch it.  I haven’t figured out why, but it may be because it is a lot of talking, and no animation.  Go figure.

I love the characters….and I think that Martin Sheen is an awesome President, of course, I don’t agree with his liberalism on the show or in real life (whoah).  He just has an amazing “presidential presence”….of course, once Jimmy Smits comes on, I **really** like him…but I think I like him for more than his presence!

My favorite character, by far, is Josh Lyman….Bradley Whitford!  He is great!!!!  I love his sarcasm…his sense of humor….his snobiness….everything!  So, now I am trying to figure out if I like Bradley Whitford as an actor or just as Josh Lyman.  In case you didn’t know, he also played the irritating guy, Eric Gordon, in Billy Madison.  He was soooooooo very irritating, but did such a good job being sooooooo irritating!!!!  Bradley Whitford has a new series, The Good Guys, that I haven’t seen yet.  We tend not to watch current television shows in lieu of watching older episodes on Netflix.  So, I guess we will be waiting for The Good Guys to make its appearance on Netflix.

So, I am now addicted to West Wing….and will soon have another television addiction, I’m sure, but until then….West Wing it is!

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You finally drank the Kool-Aid!

    Barry bought me the complete DVD set (all seasons) last year for my birthday. I raced through the first three seasons during the first few months of Henry’s life…I would watch episodes while I nursed him. But my WW viewing has slowed down dramatically since he became mobile! lol

    I HAVE WATCHED EVERY EPISODE MORE THAN 20 TIMES, I CAN NOT SEEM TO STOP, THANKS TO BRAVO. I DO NOT HAVE A FAVORITE CHARACTER, I THINK IT MUST BE THE WRITING / DIALOG, THAT IS NOT TO SAY THAT THE ACTING ISN’T OUTSTANDING BECAUSE IT IS. THIS SHOW SHOULD BE REQUIRED FOR ALL POLI SCI STUDENTS OR ALL STUDENTS…I MAY NEED TO GO THRU SOME KIND OF 12 STEP PROGRAM , TO SHAKE THIS NEED.
    SORKIN NEEDS TO GET BACK TO WORK.
