Shows how good The West Wing can be
4 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm working my way through my West Wing Boxset so when it became obvious that this episode wasn't going to be directly linked to any of the on going plots or feature any of the other main characters (though Josh and Leo do appear but not in a speaking capacity) other than C.J it was slightly tempting to skip on to the next episode. However much like another similar episode of an Aaron Sorkin show (Studio 60's 'The Disaster Show') this is well worth sticking with.

From the funny exchanges between C.J and Toby to the heartwarming scenes between C.J and her father this episode manages to showcase just how good television can be. So while I accept that this episode may not be every West Wing fans favourite I am very glad I didn't skip on.
