  • The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight.

    Just when you think they got a win, it gets stripped away. Toby summed it up pretty well,

    "We've been doing this for a year and all we've gotten is a year older. Our job approval rating is 48%, and I think that number's soft. And I'm tired of being the field captain for the gang that couldn't shoot straight!"

    Felt bad for Josh having to become the White House's internal drug czar. Leo's confession was a shocker, definitely didn't see that coming. Don't see how it could get much worse, though at least they saved the situation as best they could giving the nom. to Mendoza.

    Haven't mentioned Danny(Timothy Busfield) yet, for which I feel ashamed. He was one of my favorite characters on S60 and I think I like him even more on TWW. I swear that guy was born just to deliver Sorkin dialogue. Also don't mind the romantic stuff with CJ since thus far it's all taken place in the office and hasn't taken away from the main plot(s).
