It might be interesting to watch the last season and a half, but only the episodes that focused on life in the west wing. It might be more entertaining and coherent than some naysayers imagine. I think it's incumbent on me to mention the work of two actors who have been around for a long time, but have never received a word from me. In one case (Nicole Robinson, as Margaret), that's because her charming work has never been prominent enough to catch my eye. Here, she is happily perhaps outed as the first gay staffer in show history. In the other case (Steve Ryan, as Defense Secretary Miles Hutchinson), my neglect is perhaps because he inhabited his disagreeable character so well that my dislike extended to the actor as well. The difference between this episode and four stars is but a hair's breath. Tension arises over whether or when to awaken the President, when an international crisis breaks. Abbey is bullying the staff. Christopher Lloyd (TAXI, STAR TREK III) is every bit as wonderful as you'd hope Christopher Lloyd would be, as constitutional scholar Lawrence Lessig. Elya Baskin (MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON, THE NAME OF THE ROSE) is charming as a belarussian diplomat. Plus Marbury's back in town! Roger Rees' final WW appearance, and he's beguiling as always, particularly (or not) to Kate, who is forced to babysit him.
