The West Wing Walking Video: Not Really That Funny
Wednesday, May 02, 2012 - 02:46 PM
I got all excited when I learned from Streetsblog that the cast of the West Wing was getting together to promote walking. I LOVED the West Wing, kind of like I love the Good Wife now. One degree of separation, smart cast, great writing, plot twists. Anything to see them together again. Ah well.
It's still nice to see my fave Allison Janney, and Martin Sheen as President, but really, wouldn't have this been more effective it had lived up to its promise to be "funny or die"?
Instead, they tell us, walking is free, good for you, and decreases your chances of contracting nasty-sounding diseases.
Scripts welcome for a better West Wing.
