My husband and I feel that The West Wing is one of the best shows ever offered on television. It's interesting, intelligent, fast-moving, and often quite comical. The acting is top notch and, as you watch season after season, the characters almost take on a reality. It seems that the creator, Aaron Sorkin (very talented fellow), did the first four series and then took a step back for the last three. We found a bit of a change in the show, when he became less involved. But the last three seasons are still very enjoyable - better than most of the other shows on television, to be sure. 'Highly recommend The West Wing to those tired of television's usual, disappointing fare.
