Been watching the first season of The West Wing not for the first time; re-watching just for fun and have only now come to the realization that it’s a comedy. The show sorta grinds to a halt whenever they try to get all serious about gummint.
Bradley Whitford wasn’t the coolest dude on the show, no matter how much he tried to act like he was, but I would watch a whole episode of him and Janel Moloney swapping Sorkinesque quips.
The runaway best character on the show had to be Sam Seaborn, probably because I didn’t expect Rob Lowe to turn out to be so much fun to watch.
And those are my random thoughts about that. If you stuck with me this far, thanks!
