This review is from: The Complete West Wing: Seasons 1-7 (44 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
I didn't actually see The West Wing when it was first broadcast on TV and I bought this box set after having only seen the first two seasons (which I rented on DVD). Four months on, I've now watched the whole thing and I have to say it was worth every penny.
As has been suggested in other reviews, the first four seasons (written by Aaron Sorkin) stand out as the best but that doesn't mean there is a nosedive in quality once you hit Season 5. Certainly the show does change direction but I think it's realistic to expect that in any long-running series.
There are so many things to admire about The West Wing and previous reviewers have described the series much better than I can - in fact they convinced me to buy it! I can only agree with everything they've said. A brilliant ensemble cast, intelligent scriptwriting, thought-provoking storylines and a mind-boggling array of famous guest stars all combine to make this a truly outstanding TV programme. It's impossible to give it anything other than 5 stars.

Compulsive. The best TV series I have ever viewed with superb acting from many characters who are not household names in the UK.

The sooner this is available on Blu Ray the better.
