Goodbye West Wing

So, it was announced this week that The West Wing would be ending once this season ended. It will end with the election of a new president. I have mixed feelings about this. Though I turned in to a huge West Wing fan late in the game (Thanks Bravo!), I really enjoyed it. I have probably seen most of the episodes from the first 4 or 5 sesasons at least twice, if not 4 or 5 times. Even after seeing them so many times, I will regularly throw on an episode my TiVo picked up in TiVo suggestions.

At the same time, the last few seasons have been iffy. This current season, I have not been watching unless The Simpsons are not on or are a repeat. I've seen a few episodes and it seems like maybe this season has rebounded some, but in its current time slot, you knew it was headed for the end of its run.

This season also suffered a huge setback in losing John Spencer to a heart attack. It was a very sad incident of life imitating art, as Leo (John's character) had a heart attack last seasson.

In the end, I hope Bravo keeps running The West Wing for many years, as it is always an interesting show to watch. Even in the iffy times, it would still hold my attention most times.

I have to say though, the West Wing comment of the week came from Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report when The West Wing was mentioned on his show this week, he said something along the lines of: The West Wing? Wasn't that some sort of John Kerry fan fiction?
