Goofs

When Kate Harper and President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet are discussing the train derailment between Haverhill (pronounced "Haive-rill"), Mass. and Exeter, N.H., Kate pronounces "Haverhill" like halve-er-hill, which Bartlet, being from New Hampshire, would have at least grimaced at, if not corrected her outright.

A sad goodbye for many reasons
4 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first two seasons of this show were amazing, the third and fourth not as good, but still fine.

And then Rob Lowe left, then Aaron Sorkin, and the show got so bloated by its own self importance it went downhill. It also had to deal with the sad loss of John Spencer late in the run too.

So where does that leave us for this final episode? Well, many of our favourite characters have been pushed to the sidelines, replaced by ones not half as likable, so as an audience we feel as lost as Charlie/Will do.

There are nice moments, but it just doesn't feel like the swashbuckling 'West Wing' that debuted seven seasons earlier. The fact that Toby doesn't appear also feels odd. I mean we get Rob Lowe back (for about two lines) but come on - it's Toby! We've come a long way since 'Two Cathedrals', arguably the show at its best. And sadly it's been a rocky rode.
