It's just beautifully acted, and beautifully filmed. For those not familiar, the President has just attended the funeral of his personal secretary, a woman he knew since he was a teenager. He asks to be alone in the cathedral, and the Secret Service seals the building for him. He delivers an emotional tirade against god. He's a religious man, but clearly is having a crisis of faith here. There is a separate clip which gives you the translation of the Latin, but I like this one better even though I do not understand Latin.

The West Wing is one my favorite shows ever. I own every season and have watched it many times. President Bartlett's words to God after Mrs. Landingham's funeral were good. I loved that scene.
The back and forth dialogue in the West Wing is what makes it great. This is classic Aaron Sorkin. His other works include The Newsroom (poor reviews but I liked it), Moneyball, The Social Network, Studio 60 (again poor reviews but if you like Mr. Sorkin's writing..), A Few Good Men, and The American President.
Just out of curiosity, which is your favorite character? It's a toss up between Josh and Toby for me.

Definitely Josh. I love everything about his character, and I love how the actor can convey so much with his facial expressions. Toby and CJ are probably tied for second, then President Bartlett. Donna really annoys me.

I recently watched all three seasons of Orange is the New Black and am now watching Wentworth...another show about women in prison but set in Australia and more serious than OITNB.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Last night I saw the pilot for Lucifer. I thought it very funny indeed.

I've been watching Fringe on Netflix. It's pretty awesome. I absolutely love John Noble's character, Walter Bishop. I'm just now getting into season 3.
