What a great show. I'm always gld when something original comes to TV, but The West Wing was so much more. West Wing showed me what the President could be with an educated American elected to office. It renewed my faith in the branches of government and the people who work for the common good. West Wing was populated with hugely talented actors who were able to represent a care for the country. Great Talent.
The story lines are well crafted and individual plots in their own right, but at the same time tie the whole show together and help the characters progress in time naturally.
The West Wing is one of the absolute best dramas ever.
