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?" ;)
