Well you might be a bit confused
And you might be a little bit bruised
But baby how we spoon like no one else
So I will help you read those books
If you will soothe my worried looks
And we will put the lonesome on the shelf

Ten years ago today, one of the most memorable episodes of The West Wing aired, leaving a trio of characters stranded in Indiana, with CJ still mourning Special Agent Sunshine and Jed Bartlet giving one of the finest speeches of his fictional presidency. That episode was the season four premiere, 20 Hours in America.
Perfectly walking the line between the dramatic and the comedic, the episode shows Aaron Sorkin at the peak of his form. Each character within the ensemble has something to offer, from the show-stealing combination of Josh, Donna and Toby, to the rhetoric of Josiah Bartlet, the exploration of Sam’s naivety, the always-underused friendship between CJ and Charlie, Charlie’s loyalty to his hirer, Debbie Fiderer, and Leo, Fitz and Nancy trying to keep the President from seeing the inside of the Hague. Few fans of the show, I would imagine, would claim not to have enjoyed this refreshing change of pace - a chance to catch your breath following an intense Season 3 finale. It’s dialogue, performances and direction like this that make me both love and miss the show so very much.
