So yesterday I started watching The West Wing Series 1. Two episodes in and it already has me hooked. At first I was struggling with some of the low (and fast) talkers with their American accents but I'm getting used to it now. Great viewing. Although I do have to rewind bits if I get distracted by the feed...this series needs a bit more concentration than some of the others I've been looking at.
But it certainly beats infomercials and home shopping, which seem to be the standard midnight to four a.m. viewing fare on television. The night before last, I did find an old episode of Leyland Brothers World (they were driving around Cape York, and in Weipa when I tuned in) but that was a rare non-marketing moment.
