The Five Question WEST WING Study Guide: "As my Chief of Staff Gently Weeps"

  1. Okay. NBC is perfectly within their rights to use their promos as creative misdirection--in this case, pretending that Toby Zeigler was actually going to resign--but don't you think that each time they do that bullshit, a tiny piece of their soul takes up residence in the Inferno? Because I do.
  2. After the month long build-up to Jimmy Smits' appearance on the show, would you say that his debut left you a) underwhelmed, b) very underwhelmed, or c) I'm just trying to get over the stupid fucking Jimmy Smits comes back from the dead to haunt Dennis Franz on NYPD Blue craptasm to even begin to weigh in on his totally underwhelming West Wing appearance.
  3. Seriously. If you worked in the actual West Wing, wouldn't you have punched Will Bailey in the mouth by now?
  4. Kristin Chenoweth joining the show is a clear example of a) Ainsley Hayes regret b) a desperate stab at re-Sorkinizing the show c) who's Kristin Chenoweth?
  5. Is it just me, or does the sight of Donna puttering around in a wheelchair make you feel like she's some Hitchcock blonde in search of a psychological caper film?
