It's not supposed to embarrass you.  I just thought the, there will always be more marches! quote was funny.   

Hey, I didn't use an exclamation point (there)!

I'm going to start on BSG soon.  I think after my retreat this weekend.

I agree on the Sopranos decline.

Speaking of shows we both like that kinda went down the shitter....I finally brought myself to watch post-Sorkin West Wing.  I think 5 really sucked.  I think 6 and 7 have been better, but it's still crazy how it's like a completely different show from 1-4.  I'm about halfway done with 7 now....waiting for Sam to come back.

Quit watching now.  How bad the West Wing gets will put you into a 2-month depression.  It went from a show that I loved to one that I wish would be put out of its misery.

7 is OK.  It gets a little slow after the campaign ends, but curiosity will be enough to keep you on till the end. 

You'll like BSG, P.  Starbuck reminds me of you!

:D  Either I'm thinking of the wrong person or she has an unexpectedly and extremely dorky personality.

Ha, well...she is determined and talented!  I'm thinking specifically of the 5th episode from season 1.  I will watch that tonight instead of Lost.

I really started to lose interest following Rob Lowe's departure.  I thought that Will Bailey character was a net negative.

So were you rooting for Vinick because he's probably closer to your politics, or Santos because our West Wing friends work for him?

Oh, definitely Vinick.  Partly because it would have been interesting to have a right-wing West Wing-type series, and partly because if somebody like him actually got the Republican nomination for president, I would drop whatever I was doing and go work for him. 

I thought Will was OK -- very earnest!  His character just suffered because he didn't get the full benefit of Sorkin's writing.

The only thing that bothered me with the show is that it's a left wing dream.  The right wing always comes off as of moderate intelligence and conniving.  It's like the good guys defeat the evil conservatives all the time.  I'm a conservative democrat and feel that many of the very legitimate conservative positions are marginalized.

Right, but I don't think Vinick fit into that mold.  He always seemed smarter than Santos.
