The complete seventh and final season of the award-winning drama series starring Martin Sheen. In this season President Bartlet (Sheen) confronts nuclear saber rattling, and is forced to deal with the untimely death of a close friend and colleague. Episodes comprise: 'The Ticket', 'The Mommy Problem', 'Message of the Week', 'Mr. Frost', 'Here Today', 'The Al Smith Dinner', 'The Debate', 'Undecideds', 'The Wedding', 'Running Mates', 'Internal Displacement', 'Duck and Cover', 'The Cold', 'Two Weeks Out', 'Welcome to Wherever You Are', 'Election Day (Part 1)', 'Election Day (Part 2)', 'Requiem', 'Transition', 'The Last Hurrah', 'Institutional Memory' and 'Tomorrow'.
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 thats 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 Bartlets administration.
That said, though, season seven of The West Wing still doesnt hit the heights that the show has scaled over its run, yet its 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 Spencers tragic passing was written into the show. When the credits roll for the last time come the final episode, theres a real sense that something quite special has come to an end. --Jon FosterSee all Product Description

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!
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.
Outside, the Democrat Santos (Smits) runs a tight race against Vinick (Alda) and who will win (and ultimately become President) provides an electricity to the season. Both nominees, whatever your politics, are commendable characters who you will feel empathy for whilst casting a more disappointing glare at those who pass for real-life politicians. This is what the West Wing has always done best: it has managed to restore a sensibility to politics, showing that the previous attempts to portray them as either idiots, corrupt or overly noble are all false. In the show, they are people who strive to make a difference but are by no means infallable saints themselves.
This really is first rate stuff. The emerging campaign shows that both sides can have good, even great days. With it comes a whole catalogue of problems, some to do with campaign strategy and some unseen. And with the sad, untimely death of principal cast member John Spencer, who plays Vice-President nominee Leo, events towards the end of the season have to take a sad and unexpected turn. For long term fans, expect many storylines to come to a fitting close with relationships resolved, and old friends re-connecting(particularly with the brief and welcome return of Rob Lowe as Sam Seaborn).
The West Wing is a fantastic drama that has rightly earned its accolades for sharp writing, excellent storylines and a truly wonderful cast. Whilst this is a fitting finale, I cannot help but feel a true sense of loss...
