A prestigious, award-winning drama series like The West Wing deserves first-class treatment on DVD, and the Complete Series Collection really delivers the goods. Like the series itself, the packaging is first-class all the way. The entire DVD set is held in a dossier file box, with a faux-leather navy blue exterior graced with an embossed silver-foil presidential seal and a magnet-sealing flap that neatly closes the lid with no visible latches or clasps. The 45 DVDs are held in seven individually tabbed and numbered fold-out files (one for each complete season) with a pocket for each DVD and West Wing cast members pictured on each fold-out file. (In addition, the DVDs themselves are labeled with a photo of the entire primary cast.) And while the audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, gag reels, and other DVD extras remain the same from the previous individual-season DVD sets, the glossy, lavishly illustrated episode guide is exclusive to this set, and it's a convenient one-stop source for specific episode information. Also exclusive to this set is Aaron Sorkin's Emmy-nominated teleplay for the pilot episode, along with a new foreword by Sorkin detailing the genesis of the series from concept to casting. You can bet that Sorkin and his West Wing colleagues are pleased with the overall presentation of this full-series collection; it's durable, impressively stately without being ostentatious (like President Jed Bartlet himself), and guaranteed to look great on any bookshelf. --Jeff Shannon

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First of all, the physical presentation is outstanding. Very nice box, with magnets inside to help it snap shut without anything cluttering the smooth look of it.
Folders for each season are well done, folding out several times to encompass all the discs for each season.
So far I've gone through about 20 of the discs, and have had no issues. English subtitles are there if you want them (someone's post from a while ago said there were none, so that may have just been something added since that review) and all the discs were in mint condition and played without any issue.
The series itself I won't bother reviewing, since there's over three hundred other reviews that go into it, but I will say it is among the best of any of the TV shows I've ever seen, but that was to be expected considering how much I liked Studio 60 and Sports Night. Actors were fantastic, story lines were engaging, and most importantly, you get attached to the characters, and feel invested in what's happening to them. An absolute must for me to enjoy anything is that ability for the writers to pull you into their little universe and make you CARE.
I'm glad I was finally able to get hold of the discs, but even more pleased that it was so artfully done with this package.
You will get attached to the characters and there are some real tear jerking episodes. It was based on the Clinton admin. yet ran during the Bush admin. If our current government could run like this, what a better life it would be. The hard core left or righter's will have a hard time but they should watch it anyway. For the rest of you, it is a must see,
The problem was that the store had fewer than a third of all episodes. So we bit the bullet and reluctantly put out about $180, I think, for the entire series - money, as it turns out, that was extremely well spent.
The West Wing is arguably the greatest drama ever to appear on American television. This is a series I'll keep forever, and hand down to my children. It is entertaining, educational, and simply a delight to watch. At a more abstract level, TV has so much junk that it is also heartwarming to be reminded of the potential value of the medium. The West Wing is written, acted, and staged brilliantly. I can't praise it highly enough.
Forty-five DVDs - seven seasons - and about 130 episodes are neatly organized in a classy portfollio-like case. I'd like to express my deepest appreciation to the show's creator, Aaron Sorkin, who is also responsible for the movie, "The American President," and to everyone associated with the show.
The price is a bargain.
