There are only three shows in my life that I have watched more than any human should. These are the three most influential tv shows that I have ever watched.





Last night #3 ended.


My favorite moments from the West Wing Finale.

Mallory and the napkin

The Pardon

Everything with Jed & Abbey

Donna’s office 

Aaron Sorkin’s cameo at the inauguration

That moment when Ronna entered the Oval Office.

Charlie and The President(Classic scene)

My favorite moments ever on the West Wing.

Two words:

"Watch this."

From Noel: Josh’s almost operatic meltdown in the Oval Office, "You need to listen to me! You have to listen to me! I can’t help you unless you listen to me." This scene becomes even more incredible if you watch Martin Sheen’s eyes react to Whitford losing it. Pity and contempt, sympathy and annoyance are communicated without a word being said.

Charlie at the end of 18th & Potomac

Josh telling Stanley about his sister’s death in The Crackpots & These Women…


To the music of Ave Maria JOSH

It’s gonna be this. It’s gonna be something like this. Smallpox has been gone for 50 years. No one has an acquired immunity. Flies through the air. You get it… you carry a ten foot cloud around with you. One in three people die. If 100 people in New York City got it, you’d have to encircle them with 100 million vaccinated people to contain it. Do you know how many doses of smallpox vaccines exist in the country? Seven. If 100 people in New York City get it, there’s gonna be a global medical emergency that’s gonna make HIV look like cold and flu season. That’s how it’s gonna be, a little test tube with a-a rubber cap that’s deteriorating… A guy steps out of Times Square Station. Pshht… Smashes it on the sidewalk… There is a world war right there.

Toby and the President

What do you know now that you didn’t know before?"

"Babies come with hats."

Election Night: Abbey: It’s all right. There are going to be more days like this. It starts now. It’s going to be harder this time. Jed: Yeah, I know. We can still have tonight, though, right? Abbey: You’ve got lots of nights. Smart people who love you are going to have your back.


My Favorite Line From The West Wing:





Has there ever been a season of television quite like season two of "The West Wing"? The cast and crew–masters of their crafts to start–hit their peaks here, striking a virtually perfect balance of drama and comedy, from the pulse-pounding energy of the two-part season opener, "In The Shadow Of Two Gunmen," straight through to the sheer power of "Two Cathedrals." Those two, along with "Noel" and "17 People," are easily at the top of the short list of best-ever "West Wing" episodes, and "Two Cathedrals" may very well be one of the best hours of television, ever, period.

Aaron Sorkin has conjured up an array of characters and their stories which defy description and blows away every other show on TV. I have never loved a series such as this.

Once again, you dont have to be an american to enjoy what this series has to offer. It would help to understand the political scenario a bit, but you just need to be capable of enjoying a good drama. And once in a while if you forget its all fiction and actually begin waiting for the day for people with integrity and character to serve you from the West Wing, then get out there and vote them in to power.

In conclusion, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, this is a show that you can enjoy. This is substantial entertainment, there’s comedy, but also pathos, problems to solve and the interplay of emotions, ideas, and forces outside our control. Words cannot convey my deep respect for this show . For those of you that haven’t seen it ,you need to see television as it once was, and as it might again be one day.
