5.0 out of 5 stars
A fitting end to an amazing series, 7 May 2006
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!
