West Wing

Last night marked the closing chapter in a great saga that we’ve journied with over most of this year! We watched (with delight) as Matt Santos took office and Jed Bartlett’s presidency came to a close, not a dry eye in the lounge!

Not having a TV, it’s been bizarre for Jo and I to have taken in an entire series of something but having been lent series 1 of West Wing early in the year, we were hooked. Whenever we had a free evening then we’d watch an episode on the Laptop, fab! The writing and characterization is genius and the weaving together of individual stories against a well developed fictional political backdrop was totally engaging. If there was more TV as good as this we might actually get one 🙂

“If we’re going to walk into walls I want us running into them full speed. We’re going to lose some of these battles, and we might even lose the White House, but we’re not going to be threatened by issues. We’re going to bring ’em front and center. We’re going to raise the level of public debate in this country, and let that be our legacy.”
Bartlett

  1. West Wing is a fantastic show – definitely the kind of president that most people seem to want, but would never get elected in real life!
    We’ve also been really enjoying Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip – created by the same person. Well worth picking up if you enjoyed West Wing.

  2. We have also been watching the West Wing this year… we have two more episodes to go until the end… I love this show – what will I watch after I’m done?
