So I’m starting to come back around to what I call The “New” West Wing. I call it this because it’s like all the other shows that have a spin off. We’ve got Law and Order and CSI:Everywhere but you can’t have “The West Wing:Detroit”, that’s just not right. And I’m not really sure what’s in The East Wing so we have The “New” West Wing, it was really the only way to change it. It’s too bad, I really like the original, I mean I really really liked it. Now it’s just a decent show that’s getting a little better every time I watch it. And while it has some of the same characters, it’s not the same show it was and it’ll never be.

So here’s my point (I actually have one for this post), if you gave it up last season (like I did), it’s time to come back and give it another try. It’ll take a few episodes to get your head back around it, but it’s worth the effort. Just remember, it’s kind of a spinoff…


This is an entry I wrote a few weeks ago that I forgot to post :)

1. Have you ever been to the ocean?
Yes. The Atlantic and the Pacific. I’ve swam in them both multiple times.
2. When is the last time you wore a swimsuit?
I think the last time I had a swimsuit on was about fifteen months ago. I was swimming in the English Channel at the time. (I said in not across.

3. Do you respect people more for staying through difficult times or knowing when to call it quits?
We’ll those can easily be mutually exclusive. I think they need to stick with it for a bit before they quit. If they quit/give up they lose a little respest and a lot of sympathy…
4. Name a TV show that made a huge splash in the beginning, but has since gone downhill:
I’d have to say The West Wing. But it’s definetly started to pick back up, but it’s still not the same.
5. Have you ever eaten shark?
Yes. Shark tacos actually. I’m thinking it was at P.T. O’Malley’s when they used to be on Grand River. I could be wrong on that, it might have been a bar that popped up at the same location after P.T.’s moved to Abbott.

From the Friday Fiver.

A strange title since I think of “Jumping the shark” as when a TV show starts to go downhill. (I guess that goes with item four but most of the questions were water related.) As in when on Happy Days when they did the stunt with Fonzie jumping the shark to attract viewers it pretty much had hit it’s low point and there was no turning back.

So what I liked about the live episode of The West Wing was that they referred back to a lot of issues that had come up in old episodes. Actually, I’m thinking Santos referred back to more of them (I think he’ll win the election). Otherwise it was a little boring, I think Ellen should have given us a little more background on the debate. Obviously it was rehearsed to do the free form format. So what was and what wasn’t prepared.

You can vote on who you think won the debate (scroll down the page). It was 65%-34% when I voted (that’s Santos winning).

I did see that the west coast is supposed to get a different episode than we did so that’ll be interesting to watch and see how different it turns out to be. I guess the show just wasn’t busy enough for me, that’s part of what I like about the show…


On a side note, I saw a few ads for Medium and how they’re doing a 3D episode in a few weeks. That’ll be interesting. Where do I go to get my glasses?!?
