Farewell, "West Wing"

"The West Wing" signed off last night with a respectable, fairly well-done episode that wrapped up just about every loose end and marked at orderly transition to new president Matthew Santos. Ending the show with Leo's "Bartlet For America" napkin was, I believe, the best sign-off I could imagine*.

Much as I sometimes derided the show during its early post-Sorkin years for falling from its previous heights, I'm going to miss "West Wing" a lot, as its given me enjoyment over the years like few network dramas ever have. That said, I do believe it went off the air at exactly the right time.

*Although all future series finales will likely be measured against that of "Six Feet Under." The last six minutes of which, Karol pointed out last night, is now available on YouTube, should you decide you'd like to burst into tears in the middle of your workday.

I thought it was the perfect ending as well. As much as I would have liked to watch a Santos presidency, the show had to come to an end. Lord knows we don't need another ER.
Nect stop, The Sunset Strip on 60 or whatever its called that is next by Sorkin.
