    Another great episode. This show has to be the best written drama on US TV right now. I felt bad for C.J. with her monumental screw-up last night. I hope they don't fire her as she is one of my favorite characters on the show.
    Any opinions, comments on last night's show?

    It was a pretty good episode last night. [​IMG]
    I noticed that the last 2 episodes have been aired in widescreen. maybe they're getting ready to put them on DVDs. If they are then more power to them! [​IMG]

    It is a very well written series. The dialogue comes so fast & furious I find it easier to follow with closed captioning on. They are showing series in wqidescreen just like ER. I know of no plans for a relese on DVD.

    Does anyone make me a tape of the 10/10 episode? The TiVo ate my recording of the show before I had a chance to watch it.
    TIA - Steve

    I've only watched two full episodes of West Wing before this one (and one was last weeks special episode). I had no clue what was going on with all the jumping around. I've heard these were flashbacks from previous episodes, which is what did it I guess.

    Actually, these were not flashbacks to previous episodes. They were events that occurred the day after Bartlett's news conference and the other scenes were two weeks later.

    The time shifting was (I guess) a way to bridge the gap from last May to now. A way to get the characters to October instead of leaving them back in May.
    It wasn't the strongest episode in the series run (Last season's finale was just outstanding) but it's still the strongest show on TV now.
