Thank you, Mr. Sorkin, for your many superior shows, but specifically for The West Wing.
I love The West Wing. No, really; I love it! I believe that every time a television writer sits down to dig in to a script, they should be required to watch at least 20 minutes of the Sorkin-era West Wing. We would all be smarter for it. I’d like to point out a few things from Season Two that I feel are over-and-above your already extraordinary efforts.
First of all, kudos for beginning a second season – the season where a show usually loses viewers and rarely gains any – with a two-part resolution of a previous season’s cliffhanger. That takes guts! I must admit that In the Shadow of Two Gunmen, parts one and two, are some of my favorite hours of television. That being said, I also want to give you kudos for perhaps the best hour of television ever made: Two Cathedrals, which closes season two.
Thank you; thank you; thank you,
