Hi all,

The moderators were kind to allow me to post the following...

I believe there was a previous post about the West Wing Weekend when the Kickstarter campaign was happening. I want to give a quick update: The campaign was extremely successful and the planning committee (of which I am a part) has been busy reaching out to potential guests and speakers. In attendace we have confirmed Melissa Fitzgerald, Peter James Smith and William Duffy. We're working on more and will announce those special appearances as soon as they're confirmed.

If you'd like to get a sneak peek into the programming and also submit your ideas for programming, you can see the info at https://www.westwingweekend.com/annoucement/2018/6/25/programming-sneak-peek-and-call-for-submissions. I know we can each expound at length on what makes (and sometimes breaks) this show. This is your chance to do it in front of a rapt audience!

Registration is open at https://www.westwingweekend.com/tickets

September 28-30, 2018

Thanks,

Patricia

Bartlet's speech in 20 Hours in America, Part 2 (S4E2). This scene gave me goosebumps, so well written and delivered.

Then the scene straight after with Charlie and Anthony. Amazing.

When Clifford cally asks Leo how long hes known the president and he said about 32 years, cally falsely infers that Leo has known him the longest in the white house , and Leo says "the first lady has known him the longest, but Mrs. Landingham has known him since high school, as seen in two cathedrals. And bartlet said he went to Notre dame because he was thinking of becoming a priest, but decided to switch to American studies when he met abbey.

I found myself rewatching through again, and am in season 4.

Spoiler

I mean, we don't see much of the character - and as much as he's supposed to be a Republican, I feel that he's very left-leaning for such a role (since the show leans pretty left, anyway, I figure this just makes sense).

I don't know if this is true or just my impression/confirmation bias for being a left-leaning individual.

Anyway, I really liked his character. How he stood strong and actually did Pres. Bartlet proud - he wasn't playing partisan games, and kept things in the spirit of good will given the situation. He was a strong, forceful character - he was excellent in his press conference(s) too.

John Goodman deserves great praise for his portrayal, IMO. An excellent actor, and this showed another facet of his skill.

Josh Malina complaining about not having enough screen time in season 5 in the latest episode was... not a great look.

I am watching S1E14. Toby walks in and explains how it should be impossible for the state to kill a citizen.

This ep always seemed a bit anachronistic to me... They say that Hartsfield votes early (implying that the election is less than 24hrs away) and Donna spends quite a bit of time on the phone w/ the Flenders convincing them not to vote for Ritchie. Yet in the same ep when Prez and Toby are playing chess they seem unsure if Ritchie will actually be the nominee. Also, the election is still quite a ways away, so I’m curious... What’s up w/ that?

Josh gets respect like he did something great. I haven't seen him do anything other than call secret service once.

Specifically, a scene in which one of the characters uses "apologetic behavior" (not making eye contact, small body language, lowered voice). Thanks for the help!

Seriously confused as to how I missed this. At no point did anything on the show feel different or strange until 'Two Cathedrals'. That's when all the realisations and questions started.

I was watching Josh and Donna speak after the funeral and, as usual, I started to speculate in my head as to whether or not they'd end up together. Naturally, I mentally moved on to question if Josh would go out with Joey Lucas first and, from that, thought to myself: I wonder if it'll make things awkward with Mandy.

Mandy.

'Where the fuck is Mandy?!'

Did they mention at all where she was? Did she get a new job? is she still driving like a lunatic? Was she shot by the white supremacists at the end of season one and just... forgotten about?

I have so many questions.

P.S - Two Cathedrals was powerful stuff. Season 3 any good?

E2s7 "The Portland Trip": Donna goes on a date that turns out to be abortive (in several senses of the word) and then repeatedly queries Ainsley Hayes whether Ainsley and Donna look alike while asserting that they do not. I always figured that her date had somehow convinced her that he thought she was Ainsley. Did anyone else get that impression?
