    I'm gonna ramble about West Wing.

    I like Joshua Molina. Liked him an awful lot on SportsNight, the previous Aaron Sorkin show. I sent him a fan email and got a response. He didn't have to do that. But I did not like his Will Baily replacing Robe Lowe/Sam Seaborn when Sam left to run for office in California. Sam should have been replaced by CJ Cregg as Toby's able assistant messagesmith for the administration.

    Also, I cannot stand the choice to make press secretary CJ Cregg the chief of staff when Toby FUCKING Ziegler and Josh FUCKING Lyman were right there. Yes, it gave Josh a reason to hit the campaign trail and leave the White House, but it began the marginalization of Toby, who I consider the true romantic of the show in the Warren Ellis sense. He was bitter and gruff because he was fighting for a better world, and he rightly took the president and previous chief of staff Leo to task for how they handled the president's MS diagnosis. Toby also pushed the president on the matter of his father's ghost, giving Bartlet the spark to seek re-election.

    He deserved better. So did we.

100% agree. I love CJ, but it felt like such a PC thing to do to make her chief of staff when she was perfectly fine where she was at if not in Sam's position. Also with the astronaut thing with Toby was really bad. He wasn't even in the finale. CJ just seemed really ill equip for the job. Actually that is what is sorta frustrating about the West Wing is that they get so in over their heads, there is no way I could believe they would get re-elected let alone pass anything. I understand that helps make the show feel real, but I doubt any White House was that ill equip to handle things. Even Bush II's White House seem smarter and better organized til the end.

The Wee Baby Sheamus.

I think last seasons finale was probably the best season ending show in ever. Nobody would ever believe ANY of the strike team would kill Lem. Good piece from the NYT, thanks for the link!
