And so this is it. The seventh series of The West Wing, collected together in this season boxset, marks the final swansong for one of the finest, snappiest American television productions of the last decade. Fortunately, and there are no spoilers here, it does go out with some style.

That said, even the most ardent fan of The West Wing would argue that its finest moments came in the first four or five seasons, at the point where its creator, Aaron Sorkin, was still heavily involved in its day to day running. Yet that’s meant that some of the later episodes have, unfairly, been given short shrift, when in fact they more than capably demonstrate the winning blend of character, sharp dialogue and cleverly constructed, relevant plotlines of life in fictional US President Bartlet’s administration.

That said, though, season seven of The West Wing still doesn’t hit the heights that the show has scaled over its run, yet it’s got enough within it to more than justify a purchase, and for far more reasons than simply completing a collection. Not least is the superb, respectful manner in which actor John Spencer’s tragic passing was written into the show. When the credits roll for the last time come the final episode, there’s a real sense that something quite special has come to an end. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to an amazing series 7 May 2006
By Will
Format:DVD
The West Wing has been one of the most-underated shows in the UK since Channel 4 started to air the show in the summer of 1999.

A hit since it began in the US, starring Martin Sheen as the President of the United States, it also starred Rob Lowe (until he left after a pay dispute in the 4th year) and the always fantastic Bradley Whitford as Dep Chief of staff Josh Lyman.

The 7th (and final) series of Wing continues to hurtle towards the election and the announcement of the new President. Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits return as the candidates as do their aides (Ron Silver, Janeane Garofalo, and ROB LOWE!!). All of the characters are on top form, as is the writing - which is great as the same could not be said for the 6th year.

The sad passing of John Spencer (Leo McGarry) towards the end of the season is handled as well as could be, with grace and dignity. He is a true actor who will be very badly missed. The show does not dwell on this, but does honour John (and Leo) in a very nice setting.

Buy this season today and enjoy every moment of the best TV show to come out of the USA ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the beginning 28 July 2006
By Peabop
Format:DVD
You have to remember that whilst The West Wing's been must-see TV ever since series 1, it's also had the ability to educate and inform our understanding of the political process. You may disagree with the politics (definitely a democratic leaning) and some of the scenarios may be a little warped, but the backbone - the fundamentals of the American political process - remains throughout.

So we return to the beginning of the presidential process. In series 6, Santos secured the Democratic nomination. So series 7 outlines what happens next, and what it's like to tick down the clock on the last 365 days of a presidency. We get to savour the full panoply of Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits leading the charge for the Republican and Democratic parties respectively, and also have time to honour the passing of John Spencer mid-series.

Despite the introduction of many new characters, I found the symetry and resolution that this series produced satisfying. Brief appearances in the final two episodes of a host of 'usual suspects' will round off any die-hard's viewing pleasure.

The last series 7 episode airs on More4 in the UK this evening, and I for one will miss this quality programming. Time to dust off those dvds and start my personal re-runs....

Fans of Aaron Sorking may wish to hold their breath to see if a uk network picks up his new series, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip". If they do, lets hope they have more consistency in scheduling than Channel 4 has given to TWW over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A swansong that recaptures the Sorkin magic 21 July 2006
By M. D. P. Meechan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Season 7 of The West Wing sees the end of the Bartlett administration and the start of...well, you'll have to watch to find out who becomes the new President. The main contenders for the soon to be vacant Presidency are Republican Arnold Vinick (the sublime Alan Alda) and Democrat Matt Santos (Jimmy Smits). The race for the Presidency introduces new characters, while involving old favourites like Josh, Donna, CJ etc. In mixing old with new, the producers deftly avoid allowing the show to turn into a rose-tinted retrospect of the glory years, yet retains the focus on the Bartlett staffers. The death of John Spencer (Fmr. Chief of Staff Leo McGarry) is handled superbly, and several plot strands (including the Josh and Donna relationship) are wrapped up nicely. The show admittedly lost its direction in the fifth season (not to the extent that some Sorkin fans would argue), but returned to form with season six. This final season marks a fitting farewell to one of television's greatest ever drama series.

5.0 out of 5 stars All good things must come to an end 15 Oct 2006
Format:DVD
West wing series 7 sees the superb american political drama come to an end. The west wing won many awards, and deservedly so becuase this US drama treats the audience intelligently and makes politics gripping. Series 7 includes the campaigns of the two candidates; Alan Alda (M*A*S*H) and Jimmy Smits, the end of the Bartlet administration and one of the live debates between them. The west wing in itself is fantastic, and this series adds to the collection of brilliance. The live debate was so superbly acted, that it makes you break down in tears that TV won't be showing the genius that is west wing. Long live the west wing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to a great series 19 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
After having watched this final series, I would fully encourage anyone, fan or not, to at least pick up a rental copy. At times, it can be tedious with the run up to the election, but it is pretty self evident who the successor to Bartlett will be. The handling of the untimely death of John Spencer was handled well with not too much smaltz and a certain amount of respect. 'tis a pity that there is to be no more but I think that there may be a reprisal at some time in the future with one off specials.

The creators of this show decided to end the series with a thunder, and therefore delivered a season that has it all. There are clear parallelisms between some of the situation seen in the show and those faced by the current administration, and the criticism could not be clearer. There are many comments regarding "Stay the course", and even though it is based on a different environment, the message comes through loud and clear, and with a good level of sarcasm. Also, talking about the inexistence of an exit strategy for a war that the US may march into should ring some bells.

We are used from previous seasons to see a team in the White House that is trying to govern in an ethical way, but instead of facing an "ideal situation" to do so, has to compromise and do things little by little. This is still true, but the main focus of this season is on the race for the presidency between Matt Santos and Arnold Vinick. This makes for some exciting episodes and the fact that Vinick is not a typical Republican leads to some very interesting situations. I bet many people wish that the debates we get to see in real life were as good and revealing as the one we witness during this season.

Then there is the romance. If you are one of those that during the previous seasons was always waiting for relationships to develop between some of the characters, and saw that it was not happening, you will now have your redemption. I understand why the writers crafted it this way, since too much romance in the past would have take focus away from the main issues, but now they really went all out and made good in their unpaid debts.

The usual cast does an outstanding job, but Jimmy Smits and Alan Alda are so amazingly good in their roles that they place themselves a step above the rest.
