Truly Amazing
26 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series is amazing. From season 1 to season 5 the writing is flawless, and well executed. The actors who grace the halls of this infamous and fictional west wing work together in a cohesive, elegant and enchanting manner. The entire cast works wonderfully together.

This series is funny and enchanting and heart breaking and moving all at the same time. Each episode brings a new point to the table. The West Wing is about the people more than the politics because I've seen this series four times and I still don't have a clue what they are talking about. And yet, I love it still. This is a testament to the writing skills of the writing team because the personal relationships and characterisation could easily lost amongst the politics. It most certainly is not.

The West Wing sports complicated characters whose reactions to the situations they are put in are consistent and believable. Each character is endearing in their own way whilst displaying many other qualities.

Yet series 6 and 7 are not recommended. They are dull, boring, and excruciatingly painful to watch. It's long, drawn out and holds little substance.
