Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Enterprise and The West Wing were both non-bad last night. Enterprise certainly didn't reach the same heights as it did last week. A rather interminable "answering schoolchildren's questions" sequence really didn't seem to have much purpose. The away team on the comet acted stupidly. But I'm rapidly coming to understand T'Pal as the most interesting character on the show, and I look forward to seeing what happens between her and the Dubya act-alike chief engineer.

The West Wing--it's tough to watch recent episodes with people who have missed a week. I didn't care for the sports-betting patter, but the revelation about Leo's wartime service made up for it, as did the penny trivia and my favorite line of the episode, possibly the season. President Bartlet on the Second Amendment: "Can't we just agree that it's a stupid-ass amendment?" Maybe I don't agree, but the line made me laugh.
