Well, close to the best - you'd struggle to find anything of this top quality (over the whole series, not just bits and pieces) ever made again.

Top value at many times the current asking price.

Hi there.

I was in exactly the same position as you 2 or 3 months back. Then I took the plunge and got the complete box set. It's a great show - not really an 'action' one (there's just a gunfight in season 2 and a car explosion in season 6 and that's it) but one that thrives on it's writing and script. It does talk about several of America's domestic and foreign issues addressing both sides of the arguments presented. What makes the show however is the strong character development throughout.

The problem is that a 'political' show sounds boring when people describe it as such. It sucks people in through its characters despite that. The West Wing's a unique show that's worth checking out. And at the current amazon price, you could easily resell it (I don't think you will though) losing only a fiver or so.

Yes. Definitely! And it's really cheap now too. I bought the first series for my Mum a few years ago having personally never seen it before. I quickly became addicted and can safely say that West Wing is amazing!!!

Im just about to replace our complete Box Set as some of the discs nolonger play! We briefly had a dilemma when we reached the end of season 7 as to what to watch; problem solved we just started round again.

Some seminal series stand out... Hill Street Blues, ER, but WestWing is outstanding even in this company. The previous posts attest to the quality of the component parts. I agree, but series 6 and 7 have the added edge of life copying art with the recent presidential election. Santos was based on Obama! I won't spoil the ending.
Simply buy and enjoy!
