Dave!Last night I thought of an episode of The West Wing while watching the news and thought I'd watch it. Television rarely gets that good any more, and it would make nice background noise while I worked.

From where I'm sitting on the couch, my complete collection of The West Wing on DVD is about 10-feet away. But the idea of getting up, taking the season set off the shelf, finding the DVD, walking to the DVD player, turning on the DVD player, putting in the DVD, going through the menus, then pushing play... all of it seemed entirely too much effort.

So I turned on Apple TV clicked a few buttons and found The West Wing on Netflix.

After I was done with the episode I wanted to watch (The Stackhouse Fillibuster), I decided to start watching the entire series all over again from the beginning, because that's just what happens when you try to watch one episode of The West Wing. Never mind that I've seen the entire series at least three times, there's nothing better on TV.

And, because Aaron Sorkin television is more addictive than crack (or so I'm guessing), I'm sure The West Wing will be followed by yet another viewing of Sports Night and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Because there's nothing better on TV.

Which is something I've been saying a lot over the last couple years.

    Curse you Dave! Not only did you trigger my need to watch these shows, you also failed to hyperlink them to netflix so I had to click to Wikipedia, copy the show title from the wiki entry and then select netflix from the bookmark and then paste it into the netflix search box…all because typing seemed entirely too much effort…but my frustration with having to put even that much effort in swelled and I typed this entry… Curse you Dave! 😉

  2. I’ve been meaning to go back and watch The West Wing again. I was an avid fan when it was on years ago. Sounds like it’s held up rather well? After I’m finished with Robin of Sherwood (Robin Hood series from the 80’s) I think I’ll give The West Wing a whirl.

    Sports Night is on Netflix? Man, I loved that series SO MUCH.

    god, you and i are the exact same person (well except for the straight and good looking part – in every other way we’re the same)

    I only watched a few episodes of The West Wing. I never made the time to watch it. Great show. And good to know it’s on Netflix.

    Studio 60 on Sunset Strip was one I watched every episode. Loved it.
