So long and thanks for the memories

So then, the West Wing is no more. One of the finest televisual treats that I first got into whence at school and has been going for a good 7 seasons.... The whole premise of The West Wing was that of revisionist history - a what if scenario which presented a "democrat" alternative to the Republican demonstration in the White house at the moment. Yet it wasn't just a reaction it was a whole new set of policy. All the various staff of the team complimented each other, with two on screen deaths really pulling the heart strings as well as a mix of fast moving talking, a surpression of much sexual fustration and some cracking policy made it an absolute feast and joy to behold. Yet, like all good things it had to come to an end and it went out in style. More4 is having a special day tommorow but today saw the current Dr Who whup ass in a West Wing quiz, which was rather intersting, and the final two episodes. The final two brought a tear to the eye by the idea of letting go and looking outward. The institutionalistion illustrated within the confine of the show affects us all and we should all learn to look elsewhere and try things new. That said, we aren't elected by 45million people and then told we only have two shots maximum and then half your final term is wasted setting up who is to follow on. Oh and the actress who played CJ Craig proved that the older woman can be dead hot...oh yeah. Take care Y'All John
