Serie: "The West Wing" - season 5

Sendetid i USA: 24. september-2003 - 19. mai-2004

Frå Wikipedia: The fifth season opens with US forces successfully rescuing Zoey Bartlet from her abductors. Bartlet takes the presidency back from Walken, but is forced back into a Season One level of powerlessness. He comes to terms with his actions at the end of Season Four leading to his daughter's kidnapping, a powerful new Republican Speaker of the House (Walken has had to resign in order to assume the presidency) who forces Bartlet into several decisions he doesn't want, including the nomination of an unimpressive Democrat, "Bingo Bob" Russell, for Vice President. This conflict with the new Speaker comes to a head in "Shutdown," when the Speaker tries to force Bartlet into cutting federal spending more than had been agreed to and Bartlet refuses to sign the budget (forcing the federal government into a shutdown). Bartlet regains some of his Seasons 2-4 power, cutting a deal to get a liberal Chief Justice of the United States, and season five ends with a bombing in Gaza leading Bartlet to push for Israeli peace talks and Josh to come closer to Donna. The fifth season begins toward the end of Bartlet's first year of his second term (fifth year overall) in office. By the end of the season, however, over a year has elapsed. This season was the first without creator Aaron Sorkin and producer Thomas Schlamme, who had left the show in a dispute with the production company.

Dei to første episodane var nydelige, der det pågår ein intens jakt på Zoey Bartlet. Eg har ein følelse av at Charlie framleis har følelser for frøken Bartlet, men eg kan ikkje minnas om dei vart saman igjen i løpet av dei neste 2 sesongane. Det er ein del som skjer både i og utanfor Det Hvite Hus, og eg er forelska i alle karakterene på ulike tidspunkt. Det blir valgt ny visepresident, Will Bailey begynner å jobbe for visepresidenten, Kate Harper kjem inn i serien som Deputy Nationa Security Advisor og Donna reiser til Gaza med admiral Fitzwallace og blir nesten drept. Ho ender på sykehus i Tyskland, og Josh reiser ner og dei får eit djupare forhold.

Eg er på vei til å bli litt lei av denne serien (er nå på sesong 6 disc 2), men så skjer det ting som gjer at eg må sjå vidare, og det skal eg jo.

XOXO
