The West Wing: Season 3 Reviews

September 25, 2018
By far one of the most exciting political seasons of television that also featured the widest leading cast the show would ever have.
September 25, 2018
The West Wing always raised the bar when it came to end-of-season finales and the closer for the third season was an absolute classic.

By the middle of Season 3, it was clear that Sorkin was trying to give Rob Lowe more to do-to have an actor of his caliber playing a speechwriter was limiting to be sure, and some storylines worked better than others.

This remains the smartest, snappiest, most ambitious entertainment around, and features the most evenly matched ensemble on TV.

Are these folks just a wee bit over-impressed with themselves or what? Has Sorkin perhaps just slightly overestimated the importance of what he has to say?
June 27, 2018
What was once impassioned and earnest became patronising and self-righteous, and what had seemed effortless began to overreach.

Now that three seasons of the show have passed, I completely understand why people are so obsessed with Jed Bartlet... He's infectious, is why.

It made up for its cheap sentiments and preachiness with a few very strong episodes.

I've grown increasingly underwhelmed by the profoundly disappointing third season of The West Wing... I tried to accentuate the positive for as long as I could, but eventually, the show's chronic shortcomings just wore me down.

It was intelligent, acutely relevant and well acted, yet populated as always mostly by characters on speedspeak with one glib, witty voice, as if Sorkin were a ventriloquist.
June 27, 2018
Earnest in its tone, admirable in its charitable intent and God-awful in its condescending pedantry - if irony had been dead, it has by now clawed itself out of its coffin and is roaming the moonlit countryside looking for revenge.
