West Wing - The Complete First Season Reviews
I love this show and now want MORE!!. I am going to find the other seasons cheap or on Netflix soon.
I loved Aaron Sorkin's work on Sports Night which was a highly underrated show and left us FAR too early. The balance between drama and comedy is well done. I even liked Rob Lowe in this. I think my favorite characters are Josh and Donna and their wordy byplay between the two of them.
I think it was mentioned on the extras somewhere the folllowing comment with which I totally concur:
you can like this show whether or not your agree with the political bent. It had to take one "side" (party) or the other to have any kind of credibilty . The characters needed to have passion for the issues they were working on to portray any sense of frustration, struggle and triumph, but it is not overly heavy handed
For those who , like myself, had never seen this , I highly recommended. For those who have... does the quality continue beyond Season 2?
I bought the new 10 movie noir set so you will likely be seeing some write ups from those movies soon
(Decoy, Big Steal, Where Danger Lives, They Live by Night, Crime Wave ,etc)
I have been waiting for this set for a long time
As this is the first season, like all 1st seasons, we get to know the people in the series bit by bit...all series suffer from it in some way. It takes time to get the crew working onthis to be comfy with what they're doing. But Sorkin...I would vote you for president, and time! ;)
