Storyline

Presidential advisers get their personal lives hopelessly tangled up with professional duties as they try to conduct the business of running a country. Fictional Democratic President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet suffers no fools, and that policy alienates many. He and his dedicated staffers struggle to balance the needs of the country with the political realities of Washington, D.C., working through two presidential terms that include countless scandals, threats and political scuffles, as well as the race to succeed Bartlet as the leader of the free world.

Trivia

The California assembly was adjourned by a San Francisco Democrat for the purposes of mourning the death of Dolores Landingham, President Bartlet's secretary in the first two seasons, when she died in a car accident. Kathryn Joosten lived on. In other words, they mourned the death of a fictional character. See more »

Goofs

At one point, National Security Advisor Nancy McNally makes a reference to "M2 Bradleys with 120 mm guns". In reality, M2 Bradleys are Infantry Fighting Vehicles and are armed with 25mm guns. This was most likely a mixup with the Main Battle Tank M1 Abrams, which is armed with a 120mm gun. See more »

User Reviews

A great show.
15 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is what all television used to be like, in the 'good old days'- well written, well acted (even by Rob Lowe!) and beautifully directed.

The plots are thick and interesting and the people are smart and pretty and I just can't get enough of it. I wish Aaron Sorkin would write another movie (he wrote A Few Good Men) and also be as prolific as David E. Kelly- Sorkins work is by far the superiour, and I could watch it day in and day out. Tune in, you won't be disappointed.......
