I enjoyed the Sorkin-less West Wing season premiere last night. The show slipped some last season (even though it still won the Emmy), so a shake-up in the Bartlett White House was in order. John Goodman plays President Walken well IMHO, and while the dialogue wasn’t quite at Sorkin’s pace, how many shows have lines that make comparisons to an auto-de-fe? And the final montage with Lisa Gerrard’s ‘‘Sanvean’’ in the background is a typical tear-jerking Sorkin move (although for my money the Charlie-Bartlett scenes are more emotional). The online fanactics seem slightly more positive than negative, but express a wait-and-see attitude.
