The toned down intro is much better, and I think the show itself a little bit better. That's not a very high bar to hop over, but the potential in the show if a few more things come together keeps me coming back.
    I think I will continue watching it, if only to gather information on last year's news.

    I'm into the subject matter of the show more than most (politics, news, Republicans and the like), and that may be what pushes it over the top for me. But I can't help but think if Sorkin can step back a little and let someone help write Will who actually understands conservative ideology, that this could turn into one of the better shows out there. Whether Sorkin is comfortable giving up that much creative control is another story. If we could tone down the general "Sorkin-ness" just a few notches and balance the show out I think it has real potential.

    The reason The West Wing worked was that the President therein happened to be a Democrat, and Sorkin knows how to write Democrats.

    He has no idea how to write Republicans. The scene from season one where he finds the gun in the girls purse is instructive.

    So far, the only thing that would lead me to believe Will is a conservative is the fact that he's said so. Besides that, the whole POV of the show is liberal.

    It just doesn't make sense.
    I actually laughed when Will pulled out his Republicanism in the latest episode, because it occurred to me that they simply use it as a stand-in for silly American patriotism. I guess we will only see Will being Republican in his moments of foolishness. Ainsley Hayes was much more convincing. But then, 'The West Wing' as a whole was much more convincing, even though it had almost the same amount of odious character glorification. Currently, my favorite character is Sloan.

    Sloan rocks my socks.

    Haven't watched it yet.

    I started to, and it quickly got out of hand regarding head in ass syndrome.

    I'm sure I'll have a look at it before too long.
