watching West Wing on bravo, should I watch new eps as well?

I've been watching The West Wing reruns on Bravo, which is currently on episode 3 of the 2nd season. Due to spoilers I've read on accident I already know the gist of what happened at the end of season 4. Should I save the new episodes until I catch up to season 5 or just watch them now?

Well, if it's already spoiled, I don't think it'll kill you. But you'll be wondering where certain characters are, and wondering what other characters are doing wandering around the White House.

I downloaded the last two episodes of season four, which were both rated highly in the Top 50 Dramatic Episodes list by Das. Would that be the past place to start?

I guess. I've said this before, though: if you just jump in at the end of the 4th season, those episodes won't have as mucn impact, because you won't have all those years of character growth to give weight to all that happens. It won't seem nearly as powerful. It'll catch you up to the most major plot points, though. If you want to understand the Vice President thing, go back one more episode and get 'Life on Mars' which is also very good.

That's basically my concern. This is the type of show that I could easily watch 4 or 5 episodes a day to catch up to the current season, I just don't have access to those episodes. If I knew for sure that Bravo was going to show them in order all the way up to the end of season four I could just save the new episodes until then. I'm just afraid they'll end with season three or something, then I'll be in the same postition just a few months later.

The Bravo website isn't much help, as it just shows episodes up through the 2nd season finale to the end of October. There's no schedule information for November. Perhaps in a couple of days when we switch months, they'll post another month's worth of scheduling data.

Of course, I'm sure ... I'm sure that I'm a dumbass. Thinking 2nd, typing 3rd. Sorry about that.
