Tuesday, December 21th, 2010 – Day 21: The West Wing

Season 3, Episode 10: “Bartlet for America”
Directed by: Thomas Schlamme
Written by: Aaron Sorkin
Starring: Rob Lowe, Moira Kelly, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen, Stockard Channing, Tim Matheson, Joanna Gleason, Mark Feuerstein, Clark Gregg, James Handy, and Steven Gilborn
Original Air Date: December 12, 2001

You can also purchase a copy of the episode at Amazon or iTunes.

Though “Bartlet for America” takes place during the third season of The West Wing, the episode is primarily composed of flashbacks focusing on the history behind Senator Bartlet’s decision to run for President, which is incredibly moving, engaging, and interesting. The episode contains the usual brilliant Sorkin charm and is expertly shot. Another outstanding Christmas episode of The West Wing.

Official Description:
Leo fears the worst when he testifies in the congressional investigation into Bartlet’s lack of public disclosure about his illness.

Join us tomorrow for a classic holiday episode of Lois and Clark and let us know what you thought of “Bartlet for America.”
