    You can purchase on google play. There were no free options a few months ago when I was looking.

    I didn’t mean meh to the show, I just realized that’s how it looked. I meant meh to dailymotion.

    Yeah I get on Sorkin kicks too, I’m right there with you.

    Sports Night is so great. You'll find the laugh track they use for the first season off-putting though, fwiw.

    I’ll be damned if this isn’t right on. Plus with the unicef ads every couple of minutes, this is going to be a struggle

    The network forced it upon Sorkin even though he (rightly) was adamant against it. He eventually got removed.

    Rewatching Gossip Girl, and the Waldorf’s get a letter addressed to them from their family estate attorney in season 3. That attorney’s name? Lionel Tribbey. What a crossover.

    Other random crossover, the fiancé was watching secret life of the American teenager, and I’m almost certain the Oval Office couches are the exact same ones in the living room of the main family

    Could be wrong, but I think I remember Ainsley Hayes saying that he left a lucrative practice in Chicago to become White House Counsel

    The west wing weekly that covers this episode is really good. Everyone that loves this show should check it out. They have awesome guests like Aaron Sorkin, most of all the living actors, producers, directors, former politicians, etc

    I just finished rewatching the Soprano's, think it's about time for my annual West Wing rewatch. When President Bartlet throws heat at Mary in the Pilot, just outstanding.

    At its best its as good as anything thats been on tv. It also makes me hate the current political climate even more. It makes the things they complain about as partisan politics look like petty annoyances.

    Throwing on an episode whenever I'm bored. I understand the circumstances, but Isaac and Ishmael is so fucking cringeworthy. Leo's just a racist out of nowhere.

    I like enough of the stuff down in the cafeteria to put up with it on rewatch, but Leo being an unrepentant racist for 15 minutes and Ali just getting a "way to be back at your desk kid" in repayment always irks me, even more-so given our current climate.
