Aaron Sorkin, how I've missed you

Now that I've run out of Aaron Sorkin era West Wing episodes (I still haven't decided whether I am going to continue on with the series, any thoughts?), I've been left with a void that was once filled with great characters and better than great dialogue.

A movie about Facebook: sounds ridiculous. And probably boring.

Add a screenplay by Mr. Sorkin and I am so in I'm almost out again.

I have no idea when The Social Network will actually get made, and subsequently released. But I am psyched.

season five is mediocre until Glenn Close shows up for one episode. I think it's one of the best ones, period. And after it, the show picks up again.

At the time, I didn't realize that I stopped watching exactly around the time Aaron Sorkin left (I wasn't as up on my tv facts and gossip. There was no Ausiello in my life then). I keep thinking that I'll go back and watch those missed seasons, but I don't know if I can. I love the Sorkin era so much.

I once made a friend a revisionist American history zine with the Sorkin presidents (Andrew Shepard and Jeb Bartlett) replacing the Bushes. It was wishful thinking. And way better speech writing.

Kat: I will consider this... Maybe I can just skip a bunch.

Hellp Pineapples!: (I love typing your name and then the colon. I like weird mixes of punctuation.) Your revisionist American history zine sounds amazing. Amazing.

I think I might be addicted to books. And noodles. I need the ocean. I want to know everything. Almost. I love love. And loving things. Like love. And like.
