West Wing: The Complete Seventh Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Get out your hankies for the moving final season of The West Wing. It's not just because it's the last season, and the last time we know we'll hear that thrilling theme music. It's not just because it's the end of the line for the administration of President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet (Martin Sheen), an inspiring, beloved fictional leader of the free world in a time of great cynicism about real-life politicians. It's also because of the sudden, untimely death of costar John Spencer, who played chief of staff Leo McGarry, who, like his character, was a recovering alcoholic and died of a heart attack in December 2005. Spencer's death was worked into the season's story line, and it's both exhilarating to see some of Spencer's finest work in the early episodes here, and heartbreaking to see the impact of his death on the cast. At one point, Martin Sheen delivers a moving on-air tribute: "Johnny, it seems we hardly knew you." Other highlights of the season include the fleshing out of presidential candidates Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits, both respectable, admirable and worthy opponents. And in abundance are the things viewers had come to love about the show: the witty dialogue and spot-on delivery, especially by actors Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, and the crack Allison Janney and the long tracking and circular shots of characters in their element (subsequently found on creator Aaron Sorkin's follow-up series, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). If the story lines aren't as topnotch as some in earlier years, it hardly matters, as this is the season that wraps up the entire story arc. The gimmicks, like the live debate between Smits and Alda's characters, don't hold a candle to the true soul-searching and idealism found in every single episode. The set includes all 22 episodes, a glossy guide to each episode, and "Live from the Director's Chair," a mini-doc about filming the live debate episode. Hail to the chief! --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars a proud end to the greatest series of all time Jan. 12 2007
Format:DVD
The West Sing settles nicely into the Sorkin and post-Sorkin eras in almost equal measures (4 vs 3 seasons). And while no one has ever claimed the John Wells-helmed version of the show was superior, it is still impressive television. Credit is also due for the way the show completes the character arcs for every single character. Sorkin established these wonderfully interesting personalities, and kind of left them where they were. In seasons 6 and 7, each character gets their own legacy, and no one gets short shrift (with the possible exception of Charley) - even Sam Seaborne (Rob Lowe) is back in an all-too-brief role. As sad as it was to see the West Wing end, the final show "Tomorrow" ends with a finality and a hopefulness that fans deserve, and is a far better coda to a series than to continue without President Bartlet in office.

All told, the 7 seasons of the West Wing set a new highwater mark for television, and I, for one, am doubtful, it will ever be surpassed.

The West Wing provides a glimpse into presidential politics in the nation's capital as it tells the stories of the members of a fictional presidental administration. These interesting characters have humor and dedication that touches the heart while the politics that they discuss touch on everyday life.

You don't need to know anything about politics to follow this great series, actually, you might learn a bit...!

Each recurring cast members fit perfectly their own characters. It is very sad that it had to end, but at least this series gave us a fabulous 7 years of great entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best shows ever made March 8 2014

I was so excited to be able to buy the final two seasons (and at a very low price! thank you Amazon!) after only having had up to season 5 for several years. This show is so well-done, with brilliant acting, directing, scripts, everything. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart viewing! Feb. 7 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got hooked on this series, brightly written and great casting. Received everything on time, as always with Amazon. The problem was this: this series is so fast paced and filled with details that I always watch it with subtitles so I don't miss anything. But the subtitles were in French and Spanish, no English! Disappointing!
