Yeah, I expected more clever dialogue, better timing, and more physical restraint.


I dont think Sorkin does action very well.

Sorkin says Sorkin can't write action scenes. He said the first and only action scene in "A Few Good Men" was Tom Cruise buying a magazine at a newstand.

I wanted to like this show. Sorkin wrote some great stuff for the West Wing. Maybe it's the difference in actors, but he's trying to do the same things that worked in WW and it just falls flat here.

Some of the personal interaction among the crew is just silly.

I am just catching up. A friend sent me dvd copies of this season since I don't get HBO and told her how much I have been enjoying West Wing.

This has to be my favorite episode so far. Of course I haven't seen any past this but that's what I have planned for the weekend.

I have really enjoyed the interplay between characters and found it more real than what was in West Wing, which I had also enjoyed.

"James Tiberius Harper" made me laugh. The guy putting his hand thru the monitor made me cringe and I did feel for him -both in losing someone he was responsible for and for being angry at an idiot on the tv. I absolutely adored the ending and it was very dusty as I watched it, even knowing what was coming. It still got me.

Oh yeah, the whole valentine's day thing was just background fluff but so what, it happens in lots of shows.
