The View From British Couches Two Years Ago

If you're anything like me, you love Aaron Sorkin. What could be better than two or three brilliant characters bantering quickly about current affairs while quickly walking? Remember The first three seasons of The West Wing?

Those of us who thrive on well-reasoned and humorous political discussions delivered at a brisk pace have been out in the cold for a while now. Studio 60, Sorkin's last TV project, was canceled in early 2007 and his play The Farnsworth Invention closed in 2008. (I never saw it. You still can't download theater seats for free over the internet.)

What is a Sorkin fan to do?

Well. Spurred on by my curiosity about the latest star in the world's longest-running Sci-Fi television series, I started watching Matt Smith's earlier roles. And I stumbled upon Party Animals, which follows the lives of young people working in and around the British Parliament.

You can find the shows on bittorrent... or youtube! Here is part one of episode one to get you started.
