The End of an Era

Last night saw the last ever episode of The West Wing, one of the few series I watched religiously throughout it’s 7-series life. It’s had it’s ups and downs, but on the whole was one of the best things on television in recent years, and it’s sad to see it come to an end.

This is also the first week without a skittles match since last September, so I’m at a bit of a loss with what to do this evening. I’ve repaired the rear wheel on the road bike, and the weather isn’t really good enough to ride, so I think I’ll start a West Wing retrospective and work my way through all 100+ hours and 156 episodes.

    Weather still rubbish here, no riding for me. Bought a load of tyres from ebay instead.

    How do you know it’s crap if you’ve not watched it?

    I’m having a BSG retrospective to kill time between season 2 and season 3, after season 2 finishes tomorrow night.

    I saw some of the west wing, but it fell into that “looks good but I don’t have the time to spend watching it and I’ve missed the [insert number] season too so can’t catch up” hole.

    Oh, I rode today too. Had to waer my winter/wet weather gear (but with less layers underneath, obviously!) as it was so wet.

    How do I know it’s crap? 99% of telly is crap so there’s a pretty good chance I’m correct :)

    The west wing is great. Quite often in a this is really good but I’ve missed what is exactly going on and who the hell are these people. Don’t think I;ve seen any of the last 4 series though.
