Manage episode 294505408 series 1927678
For the third episode of West Wing Wednesdays, we brought on Alex Berger, writer on the upcoming Law & Order offshoot, For the Defense, to talk about A PROPORTIONAL RESPONSE.
We talk about how the audience must suspend their disbelief in the show's bombastic dialogue, and view the characters more like superheroes than real life political figures, to better tune into what it's trying to achieve. We also discuss the cycling between optimism and pessimism toward real world politics that affect that era's fictionalized representation of the white house.
