Just Like Old Times

For the second night in a row, my husband and I are on the couch in front of TV, but we are not watching TV. We are watching a DVD of last season of The West Wing. Why, after so many years, are we watching the final season, even though we've probably missed seasons five and six? Because he saw this video on Slate. Apparently, the character of Matt Santos, played by Jimmy Smits, a Latino congressman who runs for president on a platform of hope, was based on a then little-known Illlinois state legistlator.

It's been ages since I watched this show and it feels like old times. What's old is new again. Want to check it out?
