For those who haven’t seen this link on uk.media.tv.west-wing there’s a decent interview with Aaron Sorkin, post-leaving the show, here. One allusion to the plot of a late season 5 episode, but otherwise no spoilers.
It’s fascinating that he hasn’t watched the show at all since leaving. Had I done the same, would my feelings towards the show be different, I wonder? I don’t think so. I find the current incarnation of the programme increasingly leaden, but still enjoyable1, and it hasn’t soured me on the show’s superlative early years.
1Never let it be said I don’t know how to damn with faint praise!
