5.0 out of 5 stars amazing series, May 3, 2004
This review is from: The West Wing: Season 1 (DVD)
I don't watch many telly series anymore. They come, they go and by the time you get interested, they are cancelled. I enjoy movies, but series often just do not have the quality that I seek.
I resisted this series. I am not fond of politics; the process
often is more PR than real substance. It frustrates me, so why would I seek out a series about a subject that makes me want to toss a brick at the screen? Due to my husband getting hooked on it, I ended up catching bits and pieces as I would pass by. I found myself captured by the incisive writing, the amazing insight into the different characters, the humour, the pathos, the drama. The acting is top drawer, the casting amazing.
The show is simply addictive.

I am writing my review of this series nine years after Ms. MacGillivary's because all the reasons she gave re. telly series really rang a corressponding bell with me. Than in her second statement again I heard my 'self-talk' re. politics etc. In addition, when I hear the name Sheen I want to hurl (thinking of Charlie). After the 1st episoide I thought that would be the first and last for me--however, since I have just completed watching all seven seasons of 'The Closer', which I really, really liked, I was really hoping for something that might at least be tolerable and somewhat viewable. My closet friend (we met in college) has in the past four years been 'educating' me in the murky aspects of political ways. She mentioned that she was watching this series via Netflex and finnally out of desperation (Major Crimes is a major crime unto itself, I decided to watch a episoide or two. Schock!, this series is fantastic--more fantastic at times than at other times. I am glad that I kept coming back! All the elements of great actors in a series, as with The Closer, great writing and directing etc. are combined in this series. The only other political series that has ever caught and kept my attention starred Gina Davis (not an actor I in the past, that I gravitated to) in the series "Commander In Chief". Back to 'The West Wing' , -- simply great! So glad I watched past episoide one. Sorry about my poor spelling--side-effect of dyslexia.
