5.0 out of 5 stars A return to form, 3 Oct. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The West Wing - Complete Season 6 [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Season 6 of the West Wing marks a return to form for West Wing devotees who have missed the Sorkin-written snappy dialogue of the early seasons. We're in the run up to the next Presidential Race and the big question on everyone's lips is who will hold the Democratic ticket. And in the background there's the minor question of still having a country to run...
As ever, the ensemble cast work beautifully together, with Bradley Whitford a stand-out as Josh Lyman, and the addition of Jimmy Smits and Alan Alda deepening the cast. Alda in particular is an excellent addition as a Republican senator and in introducing his character as a sympathetic, nuanced and unstereotypical Republican the team behind the show have gone a long way in redressing its previously one dimensional representation of Republicans. Of course, the world would be a better place if any politicians actually were as intelligent and altruistic as Bartlett or Vinick - Democrat or Republican, but if you are able to suspend your disbelief on that score you won't be disappointed by the quality of this season. The West Wing remains one of the few "must see" intelligent dramas being produced these days: enjoy it while it is still topical.
