Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:41 Dancing with the Stars: We cover four hours of dancing in about 11 minutes, plus award our own prizes for Entertainment and Enthusiasm to two of the stars.
11:36 The West Wing: The drama quotient is high on "Posse Comitatus," the season three finale. If you're familiar with the ep, you'll understand why (and when) Catherine screamed while watching on the treadmill.
23:35 Challenge Round: NCIS: Since Mark Harmon's character on West Wing is no more (sob), Terri challenged Catherine to watch him as Leroy Jethro Gibbs on the long-lived series NCIS (season 6, episode 4, "Heartland"). Catherine investigated and found it worth the watch. For next time, she challenged Terri to take in John Lithgow's Emmy-winning performance as Winston Churchill on The Crown (season 1, episode 9, "Assassins").
For next week, we'll watch that and Dancing with the Stars, plus listen to The West Wing Weekly's "Big Block of Cheese" podcast ep (not the season 4 premiere just yet). See you Tuesday, October 3.
