Finally working as it should
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've stuck with this show because I loved the West Wing and kept wanting a replacement. This episode finally pulled all the pieces together into what we came to expect from these actors and writers. The comic banter sets the pulse of the show and the dramatic punches, even when expected, were truly punches. It could have gone either way with the chairman and they could have dragged out the romantic links for way too long but they didn't. The tribute to New Orleans was well set up and executed - brought me to tears. I can't wait for the second half of this season. If you gave up on this show early on, give it another try. You might have to review a few episodes to catch up but it's worth it. PLEASE keep up the good work and keep improving.
