Unintentionally Amusing?
17 November 2002 | by slspecterSee all my reviews

I have recently caught this show on Saturdays (Yes, I have no life) and I have found it very amusing and interesting. I mean, in "French Kiss" four men in a MBE pull guns on each other thinking they are all terrorists only to find out they work for the CIA, FBI, INS and Secret Service respectively--that's a classic, especially since they really don't ever know what the other is doing. However, I find it remarkably amusing because, well, when you know enough about the

background of a show like this or the West Wing, it's interesting to see the little coincidences and foibles in the show. This show is funny, even at times when I think it should be dead serious I find it humorous. BTW, I noticed that Jennifer Brandes and Chris Hepler have written a couple of episodes this season--both of which I found to be very cool. Jennifer and Chris wrote a book that I thoroughly enjoyed because while it was factually accurate and intriguing, it was also written with a lot of humor and wit to it (except where certain parts were obviously injected by the editors for apparently no reason). Good work guys.
