Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I have a deep-seated, long-lived, would stab a kitten if someone told me they didn’t like the show, sort of love for a little television program called….
THE WEST WING.
Friends have even called my addiction to the show unhealthy.
Besides being the greatest show on television in terms of *casting, The West Wing has the ability to make you laugh, cry, swoon, swear and most importantly (and most cheesy)- it will make you hope.
I told you it was cheesy.
But it will make you hope. And you will watch it and believe again in big things and good people. You will learn more about politics in one episode than you ever did in high school but by people who look like this:
The people who have experience this show, they are addicted- almost to the point of embarrassed with their infatuation. It’s like being an intellectual Justin Bieber fan but instead of collecting posters and copying dance moves, you are reciting quotes that make your heart do a keg stand of happiness while staring at a buff, passionate, Josh Lyman.
At #BiSC- Katelin introduced me to her awesome husband Matt who she had said ‘watched the show’. Seven seconds into the conversation, Matt and I both admitted we loved the commentary and I gave **Katelin the thumbs up- she had married a good man. Because anyone who watches The West Wing commentary is someone who is good people.
When Ameena tweeted that Amazon was having an amazing sale on the ENTIRE West Wing series, I really didn’t even think. I just knew, I needed to buy the entire thing. Immediately. So I did. And now, because I already own the series, I’m going to be changing the life of one lucky winner!
- Leave a comment telling me your favourite television show/movie of all time.
- For a bonus entry, you can tweet about the contest too. (One tweet entry per day)
- For another bonus entry, write about it on your blog and put a link to this post! (email me if you do this one to let me know)
If you already own it- enter anyway! Give this to someone you care about. It’s better than a kidney and more memorable than flowers.
I will use Random.org to pick a winner Saturday, October 8th.
Yay! I’m so happy about this contest. I feel like one of you will be winning something even better than a new car, winning lottery ticket or kiss from Ryan Reynolds. Good luck!
* I believe Bradley Whitford was pushed out of the womb with the sole purpose in life to become Josh Lyman.
** Because yes, Katelin needed my approval. We had just met for the first time and her and Matt were already married but Katelin and I have bonded over our patented dance move and I will forever have her back. It’s dancer code.
CONTEST CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who entered!
