3 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the best TV episodes of all time for raising the hairs on the back of your neck - brilliant TV and exceptional performances, especially from Martin Sheen, Kathryn Joosten and the late John Spencer! The tension builds and never dips, ending with a fantastic series cliff hanger. There is not one character I would like to see cut and each has been carefully developed since the beginning, so we know their strengths and weaknesses and still like them. Normally I hate flashbacks in a series, as it gives me the impression that the storyline wasn't thought out well from the start. That doesn't apply to 'Two Cathedrals' where so much is explained and revealed about Jed Bartlet in this episode. It is easy to forget that Martin Sheen is acting a part because he is just so believable throughout the whole episode - no wonder he was asked to run for the US Senate.

I miss this series so much - it has never been bettered. If you have never watched The West Wing then watch it from the start - you will be hooked.
