Hey,
I'm Stephanie. The one who at the end of Zoe's kidnapping complained that it was handled awfully that we should have felt like "we had saved our loved one" at the resolution of the kidnapping. Then they told us we weren't allowed an opinion unless it was a positive one. I'm not sure if you remember me but I had e-mails from you in an old college e-mail account before they purged it. I liked re reading them. How the heck are you? Am I ringing any bells?

Wow, you've got a better memory than I do--I guess this would have been around 2003? Doesn't seem that long ago, but I guess it is! If you remember emailing me, then it must be you, because there was only one person who did. I don't remember the details too well, but I do remember something about the "positive opinion" business--which I recall meaning "you must agree with the rest of us," which I think is why I took off. I'll have to go dig through my old email now and see if I can find that stuff--knowing me, I probably DO have it somewhere!

How in the heck did you manage to come across me in the great wide internet world, btw? I'd think the odds of that would have to be astronomical! (I don't mind--I don't know if I sound like I do but I'm not complaining--I'm just rather astounded!)

I know imperviousness from mutual friends on LJ. So I was looking at her friends list and I thought. Hey I know that e-mail address!! I was kind of worried that I dropped you like a hot potato around that time because I wouldn't have put it past myself to have stopped e-mailing for no reason. Shucks, I'm sorry if I did. How long did you stick the West Wing out. I liked to have pretended it ended at the end of S2. Not only because of J&D but I never warmed to the idea of C.J. being anything but press secretary because I thought she was fun, flirty and brilliant.

Looks like we have the awesome [livejournal.com profile] qill13 in common--man, what are the odds of that? Wild!! I think we did only email a few times, but I haven't lost sleep over it, don't worry!

I lasted through about half of S6--the first few minutes of "King Corn" left me so bored that I actually turned it off. I have the DVDs through S4, and I wish it had stopped there. I'm with you on CJ. I think that without Sorkin, the show was just a shadow of its former self (though I'm still pissed at him for completely assassinating Hoynes' character at the end of S4--the eps are great, but I actually liked Hoynes and didn't think he deserved to be written that way).

It just turned too real for my tastes. So real that college classes are teaching with it. I liked the optomistic earnestness of it, I didn't want it to be realistic. I wanted it to be what I wanted in government and not what we already have. If I wanted real life all the time I'd never turn the tv on. Hoynes was interesting. Yeah, any talk about how the characters had changed for the worst turned me off. I was hard enough to break up with it but stories about how the characters changed just made me sad. I hear that Jed didn't even like Toby at the end. Not good.

I think you're definitely right that it lost its idealism, but it also lost the wit. I wanted to believe that people in the WH were as clever as the ones on TV, so I get that feeling. But I still loved it through S4. It's after that that the wheels really fell off the wagon.

Anyway--we can keep this conversation up in the morning, because if I try to keep going now, you're likely to get articulate comments like, "Whag ufuyw93?" ;)

You know what. Imperviousness is on my friendslist which led to Jo March a well known to me name in WW fandom and her friendslist led here. Sorry I forgot chain that got me to you're nickname.

Ehh, no worries--it was close enough! Still rather remarkable, though, considering how big LJ is, much less the rest of the 'net!
