I just finished watching the complete West Wing series a few days ago. I had to decompress a little. If you're a West Wing fan, you know how captivating this show can be. If you haven't seen the show, it is incredibly inspiring. It made me want to jump on a plane to DC and intern for the rest of my life. I was a little late to rally on the West Wing bandwagon, but I was immediately hooked after getting the box set last Christmas. The show does has a democratic slant but that's not the whole show. It's really about the political process and life in politics (on either side of the aisle). Plots encompassed everything from tensions in the middle east, the fine print of the Constitution, to the nuanced rules of the White House curator's office. The episodes are pretty fast-paced and witty with well-known guest stars in almost every show. So, if you're at all into politics or fast-paced witty dramas, I really think you should watch a season (or seven) of the West Wing.
Here are some classic West Wing scenes.
If you're a West Wing fan please comment, I'm going through some withdrawal.
