West Wing therapy

Tonight I got home from a whole day of sitting down and I was very tired. Daft I know but I'm used to moving more than I am sitting. I had just an hour to cook a meal before the next meeting started.
Spaghetti bolognese did the trick and then I sat down and realized that as my presence was not actually essential tonight my husband could go in my place...and bless him he did!
So stretched full length on the sofa I have indulged in a positive orgy! I found a whole episode of West Wing I've never seen as well as several more worth watching again!
What is it about this program? My husband can't get into it at all so I have to watch it alone. It's almost my guilty secret but it does the trick every time.
The intricacy of dialogue, the well drawn characters detach my brain from the days traumas and I'm ready to sleep properly before doing it all over again tomorrow.
I did get the whole series of Studio 60 as well and I would watch anything else that Aaron Sorkin wrote very happily.
Utterly relaxed I will listen to my husbands account of tonight's meeting safe in the knowledge that I was not missed.
I am again posting this fairly early because today is a repeat of yesterday.

  1. I'm so glad to hear that West Wing translates across the ocean. Big Al and I have the DVDs of the whole series, and, at least once a year, usually in the doldrums of summer, we watch the whole thing through. It takes about 6 weeks for all seven years, but, WOW, we revel in our annual West Wing marathon.

  2. we are also avid watchers of West Wing and are working our way through series two time to buy series three. Another program that has the same effect for us is 'Lewis'
