West Wing

One of the first things that Josh and I ever bonded over, aside from our love of all things Boston, was the West Wing. Though the show ended years ago, we both thought it was the best show on TV and missed it terribly. Josh had seasons 1 and 2 on DVD and we started watching them together about this time 2 years ago.

We slowly made our way through seasons 1 and 2 and for Hannukah that year, I gave Josh season 3. Through many more holidays and special occasions over the last 2 years, seasons of West Wing have become our go-to present. Each time we get a new season, we have a renewed interest in watching the story unfold. It took some time, but eventually our collection was complete.

Our commitment to watching the show ebbed and flowed as our lives went through different stages. But often, on a lazy Sunday or a stressful Tuesday, we would tune in to see how our friends in the White House were doing. It was a little silly, but it was fun for us. We have had a wonderful and stressful few years and having this escape has been nice...like a special treat. When we started season 7 this summer, we had mixed emotions. We were excited to finish up the series. It had been so long since we had seen how the series had ended.

It was a little sad too. It was one of the many things we did together, but one that we enjoyed more than most. I'm sure our mothers would say it would be better to watch less TV and to get out more, but I think we should choose a different series to watch together. You know, Josh, I do have the entire series of Gilmore Girls :)
