West Wing Season 6

I don't regularly watch any TV programmes - I have made a conscious decision not to watch Lost and I never really got into 24, although I have watched the first 2 hours and thought it looked brilliant. The main reason I don't regularly watch programmes is because I work such odd hours and I end up missing loads of episodes. However, my one exception (or weakness?) is the West Wing. A friend lent me the first half of Season One and I was hooked. Anyway, Season 6 has just been released on DVD and it arrived on Thursday. Due to the Youth Weekend, I have only managed to watch the first 3 episodes but I have watched enough to know it is still fantastic... I just love it cos the scripts are intelligently written, the actors are great and Martin Sheen makes a great American President - apparently, a number of people would prefer that he was actually the President rather than George Bush.

Anyway, it is great and I am hooked... I was talking to a friend the other day about the lack of discipline that DVDs bring. At least with the TV, you have to hang on for a week to watch the next installment, no matter how gripping the cliffhanger. However, with DVDs the temptation is too great to press play and watch the next one and the next... I am sure there is a talk here somewhere about spiritual disciplines, patience and TV programmes. Hhhmm will keep you posted if I manage to write it into a session!

How can you not be watching Lost ? It's awesome. Also I believe that one of the main characters (Kate played by Evangeline Lilly) is in real life a Christian.
