The real reunion

The “next week on The West Wing” trailer pushed the next episode as the big reunion episode, with Rob Lowe showing up. And that doesn’t impress me so much; sure, Lowe was the big name on what was supposed to be the regular cast for the show at the beginning (Sheen was supposed to be a rare gest star.) But at this point… the folks on the West Wing are The West Wing Folks. Lowe hasn’t gone on to big things; he had two series which were quick flops. So it’ll be nice to see him on the show, where he really was quite good, but in terms of being impressed with what an episode has to offer – tonight’s episode had both Stockard Channing and Emily Proctor, both of whom have moved on from West Wing to actual ongoing series, and managed to work this episode into their schedule. (Okay, okay, Out Of Practice isn’t exactly guaranteed to go on much longer, but I think it probably has already lasted more episodes than The Lyon’s Den and Dr. Vegas combined.)
