I could only come up with two UOs for Season 4 of The West Wing
, even though I'm trying for 3+ opinions per season. It's not a lack of interest. I love TWW S4, but I think I'm pretty mainstream for Season 4. To some extent, it's a credit to the season. I follow where the meta-narrative points through much of S4 and I like it.
I mean, I can certainly enjoy a series where I disagree with the obvious meta-narrative. (Hence, this series of UOs on TWW and Mad Men.) However, S4 is a fun season and partly, I agree with the straight-forward narrative. Even when it's wacky. Like, I know that Debbie met Jed high one time and then, snarked that she'd like to put arsenic in his drinking water so he could learn to care about the World Bank. BUT HIRE HER, SHE'S SO MUCH FUN. SECRET SERVICE, SCHMECRET SCHMERVICE, amirite?. Or, AWW, I miss Sam. But hey, now I like Will Bailey! It's that kind of ride for me.
Except on these issues: ( I wanted to say I"ve never been a part of a street gang before, and that"s basically what we are – a pretty well-financed one – but anyway, I wanted to say it feels good, and I think when we"re done with this meeting, I think we should go out and get girls, and I don"t know, maybe knock over a fruit stand or something.Collapse )
