Bill Pullman as the POTUS and Jenna Elfman as the First Lady and stepmother to the president's children.

Not even farking close.

Pullman? The worst part of Independence Day?

And yet no word on Community.

Unless Aaron Sorkin is doing the scripts it won't be west wing part 2.

This sounds horrible.

Although I saw the first episode of Veep recently and while it wasn't amazing, it has potential.

Pullman should have run faster.

Best scene from West Wing. If anyone hasn't watch the show yet do so. It is what I wish politics was like.

Too bad she's a Scientologist; Jenna Elfman is awful purdy:

Jenna Elfman on Nerdist recently had a dirty mouth. For more than one reason. *blinks*

Thanks. I had forgotten how good that scene was.

For me I think it's this.

For a pinko-commie-lib, Sam Seaborn frickin rocks. His mini-monologue is wonderful. I've watched this seen a brazillion times and I still get teary-eyed.

I have to say, I love 'Veep.' It's not a setup/joke/punchline kind of comedy, but I find myself laughing out loud throughout it. Everyone is brilliant. I love the sweaty staff guy with the imaginary dog, the Lurch look-alike who always has to announce that he's from the West Wing. And Julia Louis-Dreyfuss is at her best. It's just great.

"Animal Practice," a comedy revolving around a veterinarian who loves animals, but hates their owners.

So, Dog House?

/That's as creative as Billy and the Cloneasaurus.

Well, his wife did lead the Fleet back to Earf.

Another show that will be canceled within one season either because it sucks, or the network is too impatient to let it find an audience.

NEXT!

My favorite scene is, oh hell, the entire farking episode "Two Cathedrals". Another scene that is oh so wonderfully written and performed, though it has nothing to do with politics, is Leo's "I like the little things" speech in "Bartlet for America". The way Leo jumps from point to point and then winds it all together, he must be believed when he says "My brain works differently..."

I'm really liking this show so far. I'm a bit disappointed that the first season is only going to be 8 episodes.

I listened to that one ... wow.

Is every other sentence going to be "Yep" like in the first version?

The fact that I have his monologue here memorized has actually gotten me laid on more than one occasion.

I've seen the first three now. It can be annoying and unfunny, but I've found each episode has a good 3-5 crack-me-the-f--k-up moments, which is more than I can say for about 90% of 'funny' shows on TV. And that's coming from someone who would PAY SO VERY MUCH for a few more West Wing episodes.

How did I know before I clicked the link it was going to be the "Schools should be palaces" speech?

I assume everyone's seen the new West Wing "walking" promo? It's on Funny or Die, or College humor.

/Not *amazing* - but will make you sigh, at least.
//too lazy to look up a link.

Mrs. Landingham! "She's dead, sir."

Veep is growing on me pretty quickly ... I love the abuse they heap on on Mike and Jonah.

The Hulu show Battleground has grown on me. Has anyone seen it? It's no WW, but better than Veep. I'll have a hard time getting into this new show with Elfman in it, but Jon Lovett is a great writer, so I'll give it a chance.

There were some GREAT scenes to be sure and that one stands out. Bravo!

Pretty darn good one here too:

I confess that line did elicit a chortle from me. I miss Mrs. Landingham. I'm just glad they didn't have to kill the actress who played her, cuz she's good, too.

Who is the guy who said the "Shes dead sir" part?

I consider myself to be a pretty big fan of the series but dont recognize that dude.

/without Josh, Dr Batlett, Leo, (RIP) and Toby....its was only half of an awesome.

That's Ed, or Larry. Either way, it's one half of Ed & Larry, the repeating gag about two staffers who are always together and usually confused for the other one.
