We were very, very disappointed last week. The ABC has bought all the rights to West Wing, and they started showing it last Thursday. We had hoped beyond hope that it would be season 6 – we were pretty sure it wouldn’t be. We had reckoned that it would be season 1, which would be a bit painful but make a lot of sense. But no; we turned it on, and they started in something like season 4! Where is the sense in that? For the people who haven’t watched it before, they won’t really get it at all, and for people who are into it – why start there? I truly do not understand their thinking. Bah.
We did, of course, still watch it – again, that thing about watching with however many thousands of others being exciting.
