Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed episode:
00:35 The West Wing: In "The Birnam Wood," come for the lecture on the Israeli-Palestinian stalemate. Stay for the extended footage of a beloved character's apparent demise!
09:47 Challenge Round: In Plain Sight: On West Wing, Mary McCormack plays the super-diplomat (and bangs-wearer) Kate Harper. Terri challenged Catherine to watch her as an altogether different, non-bangs-having character in the USA procedural In Plain Sight. We agreed that the pilot needs to dial the quirk waaaay back.
Next up: We're taking a break for the next two weeks. We'll be back on Tuesday, January 8, with a discussion of West Wing's "Third-Day Story," and for the challenge round, the 1996 movie Big Night.
