The West Wing returns for a behind-the-scenes look at another year in the life of the eclectic group of frenzied staffers in the Oval Office from creator Aaron Sorkin. The sixth season has enjoyed popular and critical resurgence in the US, thanks in part to the addition of recurring guest stars Alan Alda as Republican Presidential candidate Arnold Vinick and Jimmy Smits as Democratic candidate Matthew Santos, a bright and enigmatic congressman from Texas. Both go up against current Vice President and candidate, Robert Russell played by Gary Cole.
We rejoin the Bartlet administration in the aftermath of the Gaza Strip attack that seriously wounded Donna and killed several others and finds President Bartlet facing strong opposition to his peace plans. Defying the wishes of the majority of Congress - including some of the White House's democratic allies - the American People and the Vice President, Bartlet persists in the hope that inviting Palestinian and Iranian leaders to participate in peace talks will forestall the necessity of a U.S. military retaliation. Even Leo feels that the President should order an attack to make a decisive statement on terrorism.
Adding to the stresses of the peace negotiations, magicians Penn and Teller cause controversy at the White House when they burn the American flag as part of their act celebrating Bartlet's birthday. An asteroid hurtles towards Earth and a leak of oxygen on the International Space Station requires a controversial rescue mission and Bartlet is stricken by a paralyzing episode of his multiple sclerosis.
During Season Six, the presidential race is on, with Senator Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) as the Republican frontrunner and Matthew Santos (Jimmy Smits) vying for the hotly contested Democratic presidential nomination.

1/ The dialogue is much too fast to follow in places. Also it’s often littered with American anachronisms adding to comprehension problems. Friends of ours have turned on subtitles to help . . .
2/ Perhaps like many series, some episodes can be tedious and rather contrived, with one “situation” after another.
Nevertheless the issues explored are surprisingly topical. You’ll probably get “hooked” as we did!
For maximum benefit from some of the fast American dialogue and terrific one-liners, I recommend using the subtitle option, though you may have to adjust your TV aspect ratio setting to a smaller picture to avoid losing some of the lines off the bottom of the screen!
Anyway, If you have never seen the West Wing, you must. Starting with the first series you become part of an amazing 'family' and if you are not a true blue Democrat when you have finished (no that's not a contradiction in terms) then you will be by the time you have gotten this far. It is brilliant drama - we loved it. So will you. There is no mention of Health Insurance . . . I promise. (I think).
