I feel like I am having the incorrect reaction.

I should be thinking more about the way our government is run and considering the Serious Issues this show brings up and stuff.

And instead I am like

Simon Cowell in love

THESE CHARACTERS ARE THE RIDICULOUS TYPE-A POLITICOS OF MY HEART. I WANT TO SQUISH ALL OF THEIR FACES.

So yeah, needless to say, I have spent the past week alternating between giggleflailing with glee, weeping into my pillow, O_O-ing at some of the FLAWLESS SEQUENCES this show has pulled off, coming up with a secret plan to fight inflation, and yelling "GET THAT EMMY, GET IT" at various actors.

The only downside, though, is that I can see the beginnings of Sorkin's writerly vices and problematic points that make his later work tough for me to take, and it makes me sad. Dude seems to write awesome female characters when he isn't trying, and when he is trying to write a Strong Female Character, it is sort of terrible. Dammit, Sorkin. WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLLLLLLL.

IN ANY CASE. Time to press on with Season Three, and hope that it is as compulsively enjoyable as the first two!
