Review of In the Shadow of Two Gunmen
Written by Toniann
Has anyone else watched it more than once already? I couldn't resist. I
literally rewound my tape and starting watching again as soon as it was
Comment from my mother, a TWW fan herself, "Aw, I didn't want it to be
Josh. Couldn't it have been someone else, I dunno, some random red-shirt
Did anyone catch what Mrs. Landingham was saying right before they heard
about the shooting? She was talking about Bartlet's inability to walk past
a rope line, and she started to tell a story that began, "I remember a
time, back at the Governor's mansion..." This would indicate to me that
Mrs. Landingham works for Bartlet, and came to the White House with him (as
per earlier discussions on this topic).
One word: Verizon!
I was surprised it took as long as it did for anyone to realize that
Charlie was the real target. In the opening scenes, I couldn't believe he
was running around without protection. Speaking of, how's *that* going to
work from now on? The president's bodyman will have security? I hope they
spend some more time on the Charlie/Zoe angle soon.
As others have mentioned, I kept wishing someone would comfort Donna;
thank goodness for Mrs. Landingham. Still, I was thinking that these people
could offer each other a little more physical support. Imagine my surprise
when it's cranky, crusty ol' *Toby* who breaks the hug barrier. I love that
Names. Didn't we determine, in some earlier episode, that CJ's first name
is Claudia? Doesn't Josh call her that at some point? And yet, doesn't
Bartlet refer to her as Cynthia (when he's talking to Josh in the airport)?
Or, am I just misremembering?
And last, but not least:
Was anyone else really grossed out when the shooter put his cigarette out
in that sunny-side up egg? Yuck.
