This is a rewatch community for the American political drama The West Wing. We are going to start from the the Pilot and watch one episode ever Sunday until we reach Tomorrow. Please come and join us! Season 1 Schedule can be found here

Mods: own_the_sky & pinikir

Each Sunday (Noon EST) a mod will post 4 hub posts.
General Discussion
Here is the place to leave comments about the political, ideologoical, and moral issues raised in each episode. Also any character observations or questions about the episode/show belong here. This post is directed toward discussions so make sure your comment will encourage others to respond. NO FLAMING OR ATTACKING. Don't make the mods have to ban you, that's not fun for us. And have fun!
You can post screencaps you'd like iconned or icons you've previously made from the episode. They must be from that particular episode and not of actors. You are also very much encouraged to make new ones. Larger graphics are very welcome as well. If they are more than 500px wide please use a thumbnail.
Whether you're a writer or a reader, this is the place to post fic. Post prompts you'd really like to see or stories you've written. The stories/prompts must involve the episode in question (situation, character arc, or dialogue). There is also a character limit on comments so if your story is longer than the comment field allows, just post it in your own journal and link the story. Be Creative!
This post will be the place for remembering when you first saw the episode and being generally nostalgic for the good olde days of regular West Wing. This would be the place to post old previews, YouTube videos, or scans/red carpets from the time of the episode airing. Skits from SNL or MadTV may also be posted here.

Never thought I'd write a spoiler policy for West Wing ever again but here we go. Now there might be people joining this rewatch who haven't seen the entirety of the West Wing and therefore we should be wary about referring to future events. You're all very smart and I'm sure this wont be a problem since we're already 3 years away from the Series Finale. But if you are someone who'd like not to be spoiled please make that clear whenever commenting about something that might make others tell you something you don't want to hear. I really don't think this is going to be a problem.

"I'm a fan. I'm a sports fan. I'm a music fan. And I'm a Star Trek fan. All of them. But here's what I don't do. . . . Let's list our ten favorite episodes. Let's list our least favorite episodes. Let's list our favorite galaxies. Let's make a chart to see how often our favorite galaxies appear in our favorite episodes. What Romulan would you most like to see coupled with a Cardassian and why? Let's spend a weekend talking about Romulans falling in love with Cardassians and then let's do it again. --- That's not being a fan. That's having a fetish. --- And I don't have a problem with that except that you can't bring your hobbies into work, okay. . . . Except on Star Trek holidays." [West Wing #410]
