As good as everBy TheMovieman (32 reviews) from Ramsbottom , 26 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]What is it about the Americans? They produce so much high quality drama. The West Wing is intelligent, witty, profound and superbly well acted and directed.The US must be wishing that Jed Bartlett could be the real president.

The West Wing - drama at its bestBy Charles Stallard from Bedford, England , 06 Aug 2006I was very disappointed when Channel 4 decided to show WW season 5, and beyond, on digital only. So I decided to rent and what a good move. Yes Sorkin is missed in the writing department and Rob Lowe is no longer with us. But WW is buzzing. The dialogue is snappy and very catching. You begin to hope that this is the way government is run. Yes it has its smaltzy episodes but these are far outweighed by the cracking ones. Other reviewers have opined about 'The Supremes' and I'll not argue about that. Plotlines weave in and out. I find the 'previously on The West Wing...' a great aide especially when it refers to something that occurred a few series ago.
If you are a fan of WW then you do not need telling. If you have heard of it and are interested start with season 1 because you need the benefit of the previous episodes in many cases. WW makes no compromises when it comes to knowledge of 'The American Constitution' or law and governance. But as one reviewer has already said, there's always Google.
They say that listening to 20 minutes of Mozart raises the IQ. I have found the same after an episode of WW. Now all I have to do is translate that into efficiency at work...

OutstandingBy a customer from Bristol, England , 02 May 2006I carn't believe how fantasic this show is, from the very first to the latest one i've watched. Outstanding!!
Still Alive At Five!By Steve from UK , 05 Mar 2006This is a truly fantastic season, and a key example of how high-end contemporary television at its best now gives cinema a serious run for its money. Watching episodes back to back, and without ad breaks, the pace and stamina of the writing really begins to hit through. The script has amazing depth; throws away as much as it drives home, and is all the more valuable for it. The cast do a killer job of keeping up - which is no mean feat when you begin to realise that one ep of the Westwing probably delivers more dialogue than some series totalled together. And the balance between life's crisis and comedy is expertly handled. The visual style of the series, with its noir-ish lighting is subtle yet beautifully striking, and once this attention to detail is synched with writing and acting this tight, one can only wither in the face of how much time and energy has been spent on delivering this show. I can't understate how tremendous this collection is as a piece of work. In a time where stylised visuals are everywhere 24-7, this is a rare treat to consume hour by delicious hour.
BrilliantBy a customer from preston, LANCASHIRE , 01 Mar 2006Amazing series which I could watch over and over again.
