Hello World!

Now that we are finally rid of that two-week blight on my television viewing schedule, known to the rest of the world as Wimbledon, The West Wing has returned.

The last episode before the break was "The Long Goodbye", aka "The Long Allison Janney For Your Consideration Ad". Cynical comments aside, it was an excellent episode, even if it felt like it was taking place in an alternate universe. As Aaron Sorkin no doubt intended when he asked Jon Robin Baitz to pen an episode, it seemed very much like a short story, published separately from the main novel, but still very much worth reading. Janney turned in her usual stellar performance, matched by Donald Moffat's portrayal of her father.

It was rather strange, though, to have CJ rolling about with Matthew Modine one week, and back to flirting with Danny in this week's "Inauguration". This aside, "Inauguration" was one of the best episodes this year: I was literally - well, not literally - glued to the television the whole time, and that's always a good sign. Talking with a few other Wingers a couple of weeks back, the consensus seems to be that this season has had a few stumbles, but the show is far from over.

In yesterday's article on Robert Duncan McNeill's directing activities, it was reported he would be performing the play Love Letters with Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres). He will in fact be performing with Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys). We apologise for the error.

Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was the birthday of Linda Park, who plays Ensign Hoshi Sato on Enterprise.
