Tonights episode of The West Wing won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a drama series and also happens to be the first episode I ever saw of the show. Because the ABC is airing two episodes at once viewers are in the unique situation of watching the finale of season four and the start of season five in one sitting tonight.
Basically the Presidents daughter has just been kidnapped and enacting the 25th Amendment he removes himself from office, and because there is no vice president the Republican speaker of the house takes over as president.
The first video is a promo for tonights episode, and the second is the end of last weeks episode along with those dual credits.
(Last time the 25th was used was in 2002 when Cheney took over the powers of the president while Bush got a colonoscopy).
