I think it's a great show... But it won't be on for another 90 minutes here! Can't wait!

I note that someone in a Sopranos thread recommended the forums over at mightybigtv, and I just checked them out... Looks like they've got a good WestWing sub-section going, too...

Acutally I think this show has a pretty good following here they just might not be here. I thought this was a great episode the church scene alone was enough.

I agree, I thought the church scene was classic! The last half-dozen episodes of this season have made this show even better than it normally is. No sophmore jinx here!

Yep -- that was damn good writing. And great performances all around. The church scene was powerful as hell, and the cigarette was a perfect touch. The final "visitation" was just excellent.

And I loved the ending. Of course, some of my friends will probably spend all summer wondering about the "cliffhanger".

I don't think it was a cliffhanger at all--but a perfect "the world stops" kind of moment. I think it was crystal clear what Barlett was doing, since he didn't get to prove himself to Mrs. L the first time...

Is there any other TV writer/director who knows how to use silence so well?

Here's a link to a recap from another site, though they're trying so hard to be humorous that they don't really do it justice...

Short recap...

Why all the Mrs. Landingham character build after the fact? If we had known the depth of their relationship beforehand her death would have packed a bigger punch. I understand that they couldn't do it in the episode she died in but sometime during the season they could have done this. Then through out the rest of the season we could have enjoyed their interactions on an entirely different level.

Great Shows anyway!
