Mar. 3rd, 2006

for the past year or so, I've been working my way through the first few seasons of the west wing on DVD and really enjoying every episode. tonight I watched the first episode after the election was completely over for the second term, in the middle of season 4. It just didn't work. the comic timing was off, Bartlett was annoying, the characters weren't connecting with each other or with the audience. The dialogue not only wasn't as snappy, but in several sections it didn't even make sense.

several people have told me that the show wasn't as good after the election in season 4, but I figured they were talking about a slow slide, not a "jump the shark" moment. I hope there are still some good episodes left. it'll be sad to say goodbye to a show that I've really enjoyed, but I don't have enough free time these days to keep watching if it's going to be like this every episode.
