    Not willing to risk it at this point because the show is old and the posts are not in chronological order

    Yeah, but I've been down here before, you see, and I know the way out.

    As long as I got a job, you got a job, you understand?

    Watched the episode last night where CJ laughs in the face of that DAR woman. So funny.

    I was watching this a few years ago but stopped for some reason. Think halfway through season 5. Going to finish it up.

    CJ's laugh in that scene is so great.

    The Francis Scott Key key. That's a different fox-hunt altogether.

    There’s an episode where Josh guest stars as a city councilman named Pillner. He has “Pillner for Pawnee” written on a napkin and framed on his desk

    Indeed. Here’s a link explaining all the similarities if you care to listen. The actor that plays Will Bailey is one of the hosts of the podcast and this one features Rob Lowe(who was on both shows) and Adam Scott who is a big WW fan

    Season 3 episode 1 is going to throw you off.

    Just imagine it as not being a part of the series chronologically.

    It was the episode that aired after 9-11, and although it takes place during the Bartlet presidency, it's not in line chronologically.

    Episode 2 will pick up where the cliffhanger left off.

    One of, if not top 2, my favorite series of all time. My only complaint is what they did with Toby's character at the end. I believe I've read Richard Schiff didn't like it either. Just didn't fit with the character. He should have been with Josh on the campaign trail
