On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri continue watching The West Wing, Catherine gives a book report, and our entertainment challenge continues with Catherine's assignment for Terri. Here’s your road map:

00:35 A Man Called Ove — This book about a (kinda, sorta) suicidal Swedish curmudgeon charmed Catherine and most of her book club pals, and its movie version charmed the Academy into giving it a couple of Oscar nominations.

10:23 The West Wing — Also charming was this week's episode, "Ellie," with a poignant portrayal of the president"s relationship with his middle daughter leavened by some slapsticky scenes with the staff.

18:53 Challenge Round — Catherine challenged Terri to watch the 1998 Wes Anderson film Rushmore. If you liked his more recent films, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, you need to watch this one too. And listen to the soundtrack!

For next week, Terri challenged Catherine to watch the movie Return to Me. We'll cover that, The West Wing "Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail," and those all-important (pop culturally speaking, at least) Super Bowl commercials. Join us!
