Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Like I said, my favourite TV show is The West Wing, and if you only count the first four seasons (I've seen seasons five to seven, but I don't know them as well, and I couldn't really pick one that I like least), I would have to choose Isaac and Ishmael (season 3, episode 0). It was filmed two weeks after 9/11, and it was a special episode. It's my least favourite because I found it patronizing. I can understand why they would need/want to make it, and I see why it was good, but it leaves me a little cold. Then again, a "cold" episode of The West Wing is still better than a lot of things, so... yes, you should still watch it.

I agree completely. I'm watching s2 right now and I was just thinking that Isaac and Ishmael is coming up, and I'm really not looking forward to it. Luckily there's a lot of s2 awesomeness before that! :D

Well, the good thing about this episode is that you can just skip it... I'm rewatching season 1 (I have one episode left), then I'll work my way through season 2... Thank God for DVDs lol

Yay! You're still posting about TWW!! lol

I agree that the ep is a little "didactic" but that's exactly the point, isn't it ... to try and educate and look at the situation in a way that's not so emotionnal (in the context of the time it must have been hard). That said considering their usual audience maybe they could have done it a little more subtly.

I wouldn't even consider it a "real" episode, TBH. Although I see how picking this one prevents you from picking a "least favourite" in the rest of the show! Clever girl! lol (I don't think I have one, or at least if I do, I don't remember it)

This meme is turning into a "I <3 TWW" - and you don't mind, do you? *bats lashes*

Damn, you saw right through me lol If I was asked to pick my least favorite character, that would have been easier: Amy Gardner. She's the one character I couldn't like.
