How many TiVoed Bravo West Wing episodes do you have?

Lots (I was wondering if anyone would catch that...)

I don't watch "West Wing" (I'd like to, but I'm out of time for any more television), but I first learned that word when I was about 10. I was reading a fabulous science fiction short story called "Puppet Show," by Fredric Brown, and the visiting extraterrestrial therein referred to himself as an "ambassador plenipotentiary." I ran to the dictionary to find out what that mouthful meant.

I guess I'll have to wait for "West Wing" DVDs, and then hope there's enough time to watch them sometime before I die.
