    I usually take the rough with the smooth, even if I know an episode I’m about to watch is a bit bobbins. I’ll be coming up to my second watching of season 4 again soon, but I don’t think I’ll skip it. It’s such a painfully brilliant season that I’ll just make sure I watch the episodes either side of it in the same sitting :)

    It’s interesting, actually, that CJ really does end up feeling like the main character, especially after we lose Sam. She gets two introspective episodes and an ever so slightly improbable promotion to Chief of Staff, where as everyone else seems to be treated far more evenly. Allison Janney must have one hell of an agent.

    > (Come to think of it, there?s only one episode of ANY show I genuinely adore that I actively avoid – and it?s ?The Long Goodbye?, an episode of The West Wing?s fourth season showing CJ going back home to see her ailing father and attend her school reunion. Or something. It?s so utterly?wrong for the show that it feels like Sorkin allowed it to happen only after losing a bet. AND it?s got Matthew Modine in it. Yeesh.)

    I know what you mean. For a show that’s managed to build such brilliant characters in the middle of what can only be described as a cacophony for three years, it seems so heavy handed and limiting to suddenly show so much of one character’s family problems. I remember Sorkin saying something in an interview about The West Wing showing what happens before and after what you normally see of The White House, and I like that they did that with the characters, too. Only showing snippets of events that other show would dedicate episode upon episode to. We didn’t see a long and painful discussion between Sam and his dad in Somebody’s Going to Emergency, Somebody’s Going to Jail and that was a million times more effective for it.

    > Yeah, cos shock revelations such as ?the married couple once met and fell in love? and ?the drug addict band member once played in a band and became addicted to drugs? really gave us a new understanding. :-)

    Ahh, c’mon Andrew, over simplifying things to prove your point is pretty cheap! Watch:

    Yeah, cos shock revelations such as ‘all these intelligent people who all work for the President and won an election for him once all got recruited and won an election for him’ really gave us new understanding. :-)

    The flashbacks are part of Lost’s core formula and they need to be there (in whatever form) for every episode. Without them the whole thing would be lacking any real structure and it just wouldn’t work as a mainstream network drama. I’m not saying they’ve not been used for padding before, but literally every show in the entire universe uses it’s core formula to allow them to easily pad a season out. It’s what happens. The reason Lost gets stick for it is because people get pissed off that they’re not being told things as fast as they want, which isn’t really the flashbacks fault. At their best, flashbacks raise the show to a whole new level (Andrew’s already mentioned Walkabout) but at their worst they at least add a little more character understanding and take that burden away from the island storyline, which I think is far more important than people give them credit for.

    > Fair point. But that?s not a reason to make your show run SLOW, if anything it?s a reason to speed it up to maintain interest.

    Well, if you speed it up then you reach one of your milestones too quickly and before you know it you’ve finished your entire plan and the network still wants three more years. I’d argue that interest was sufficiently maintained in the first three series, as it wasn’t cancelled and ratings were always solid, if not impressive.

    Either way, this whole ’48 episodes to go’ thing is fantastic news for everyone as even the most staunch Lost defenders will concede at this point that it’s definitely time for the show to pick up pace and start showing some balls to the wall intent.

    I think any plan JJ, Lindelof or CUse had at that time would still’ve been up in the air as they would’ve had to idea (or, at least, no set in stone confirmation) of how long ABC would want the show or if they’d even want it to go on too long.

    I think the biggest problems people have the show is related to what they see as padding, which itself is a side effect of the writers not knowing how long they need to tred water. From season 4 onwards they know exactly how many more episodes they have, so it should be less of a problem.

    Well, Lost hasn’t been cancelled was my point. In fact, it’s probably the least cancelled show in the US. It’s been UBER COMMISSIONED.

    > Take Studio 60 slowly. Rob Grant said it best – every episode is both a new joy and a sorrow for getting that much closer to the definite end. (Worse still, the last five episodes are one big long story taking place over a very short period.)

    Gah, I really don’t think I’m up for taking this show slowly. Advice heeded, though. I’ll try not to watch any more today, at least! It’s hard, though, as not in my wildest dreams was I suspecting that it’d be even close to touching The West Wing, so it knocked me off my feet when I found it does.

    > The same?s true of West Wing four, really. Once Sorkin goes, you have to stay on for plot reasons, but Wells wanted a very different show and ended up with a bit of a mess, held together with strong performances and capable ?ER standard? scripting.

    It took me yonks to watch season 1 as I kind of stalled after 8 episodes, for some reason. Once I got past that it didn’t take long to burn right through to the end of 4. I can’t think of a more gut wrenching way to see out Sorkin’s last episodes on the show, so I’ve been comforting myself (and killing time before some idiot Marketplace person gets round to sending the 5 DVD) by going back through season 1 and 2. Season 2’s finale has to be one of my favourite pieces of television ever created, and I only saw it for the first time a few weeks ago!

    Basically, what I’m saying is that I’m utterly delighted to be reminded that I can still be sucker punched by a show like this out of absolutely nowhere. US TV can be so awesome.

    Fair point on House, but I reckon it only wins through with – as you say – dialogue. Lost has decent rather than brilliant dialogue, but it certainly wins through for me in just about every other area. And Studio 60 is finished now, isn’t it? If you tell me now that it’s got a second series I’ll melt with happy. I’m half way through the first series and I’m in love. I’m not entirely sure it’s good for my brain to have so much Sorkin being mainlined to my brain in such a small space of time (just finished WW 4 and getting Sports Night as we speak), but I DON’T CARE.

    Whenever someone normal makes the grave mistake of mentioning they like Red Dwarf to me and then quickly regret it as I go on to bore them senseless. I used to work next to a couple of chaps who made this fatal error, and then went on to compound the error by saying that series 8 was their favourite.

    I like to think the hours of lecturing that followed educated and enriched them and that they came to realise the error of their ways.

    Out of interest, did you ever find the time to give season 3 a chance? I have a distinct feeling that from season 4 on wards it’s going to much less frustrating for people who gave up before now. And you must have some form of investment in the characters? Some curiosity about where it’s going to go?

When it comes to that format and their style, they both consistently made me laugh. For an improvisation show, the fact they were so consistent all of the time was really impressive.

    I’ve never really got on with Tony Slattery, though. He has some wonderful moments in the show, but at times you can just see him crumble. Josie Lawrence (cor! by the way) and Mike McShane were always there for their musical skills and they were perfect at the job, but I always preferred the none musical rounds. As for Stephen Fry, I’d much rather have him sat behind a beautifully crafted script.

    So, yeah, Mocherie and Stiles for the win.

    > Better than the early days of Paul Merton, Stephen Fry, Josie Lawrence, Sandi Toksvig, Mike McShane and the amazing Tony Slattery? Really? Cripes!

    Considering most of the Mocherie and Stiles episodes had Josie Lawrence, Mike McChane or Tony Slattery in, then I’d say that era is EASILY the best.

    You, sir, are an enemy of DVD shelves and all right thinking people.

    No, it was released a good while ago. It’s what got people all frothy about having their own box.

    As much as I hate the presentation*, I watch Dave constantly. I’m sure if it’s possible to get Top Gear poisoning, but if it is then I’ll be a terminal case. There’s SO much more they could do to improve HOW they put on these shows, but it’s a joy to have Top Gear, Whose Line is it Anyway and various other treats on Freeview. If only they didn’t effectively randomise the Top Gear episodes and actually go to the small trouble of repeating them in order, then that’d improve things immeasurably.

    * This is just becoming a bigger and bigger problem for me. All the cuntinuity announcers have this intolerable sarcastic tone and CONSTANTLY make jokes about their jokes in some hilarious post modern fashion. FUCK. OFF.

    > I could care less about it.

    I’ve had a bit of a West Wing kick recently (well, I say ‘bit’, what I actually mean is ‘massive obsessive fit’) and I’ve noticed that only Toby says “could care less” while everyone else, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE GREATEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD, says it correctly.

    So, yeah! Take that, wrong-o!

    > We?ll we knew it?d eventually get released all together but as long as they don?t add any more extras I?m quite happy.

    I think that’s a pretty fair assumption since the release is in a month and we’ve heard nowt from Andrew about any new stuff.

    And yeah, I hope he’s ready for a hoard of idiots pestering him for the box on its own. Never has a community over-valued cardboard casing this much.

    From what I’ve read in a number of places it’s MUCH more complicated than just removing half the frames. Cutting down from 50 to 25 is a result of the process, yes, but there’s loads more to it than that. Not that I know a great deal about it, mind.

    Someone telling you they moved from the US to the UK when it was actually the other way round is a pet hate?

    That’s not very helpful advice considering Wiis are totally different machines with different goals and games.
