Seventeen People

Jon White:

Unironically yapping about my love for this in 2014 is tricky, because my love for the series it belonged to has become so uncomfortably, uh, asterisk-laden lately. Back in those halcyon early-00’s days, I loved The West Wing. We all did! And now that it’s streaming to boot, freeing me from fiddling with those box-set envelope-sleeves, it’s even easier to revisit—which creates a nostalgia problem.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve watched the entire series of The West Wing five times and that I’m making the loop again here in about a month. I do not foresee a time in the future when I will go more than a single week without seeing an episode.

Everything about White’s project is perfect. I love it.
