I never watched this show during the original run but I started a couple of weeks ago and now it's one of my all time favorites. It is incredibly addicting.

hahaha I just finished The West Wing on Monday! I loved it! the second to last season was kinda of meh but it was still exciting to watch-- you can definitely tell a difference when Aaron Sorkin left.

Now, I want more !

It's all good until Aaron Sorkin left after season 4. It goes downhill fast.

Yep, pretty much. Just put seasons 1-5 on repeat and pretend that you get busy and just can't manage to finish the series.

My favorite show ever.

Loved seasons 1-4 (the Sorkin seasons). Don't really care for season 5. Season 6 redeems itself toward the end, and then I enjoyed season 7 again.

I'll never get tired of this show.

Season 2 is one of the best seasons of tv (except for the wire)

<3 West Wing

I rewatch various episodes from seasons 1-4 on the regular

the other seasons I could take or leave, except for maybe Donna yelling at the guy in the chicken suit

and Alan Alda as Vinick

I watched a few episodes after Sorkin left then stopped watching completely.

Before that I would watch back to back to back episodes on the weekends.

My Sorkin progression went something like Sports Night -> Studio 60 -> The Newsroom -> The West Wing.

Honest question. Is this show watchable if you have even the slightest conservative bone in your body? I usually vote left but I can't stand MSNBC type shit.

I'm pretty conservative and I love the show.

It's actually got a big following here among the other volunteers. With seven seasons on the hard drive at the headquarters, it's a great way to kill time. And you need to kill a lot of time in Benin.

Finally getting my new laptop tomorrow and it will likely be the first thing I watch on it.

The only thing more annoying than Togo puns are the Benin puns volunteers use in their blog titles. (Ibeninafrica, etc.)

Half way done with season 5 and feel like giving up.

Is it worth continuing? Bring back Rob Lowe

Season 5, Episode 10, "The Stormy Present"

Connecticut stole NC's copy of the Bill of Rights, NC stole the Whalers. Lol, they've won me back.

Just finished season 6, the last several episodes were pretty great (essentially everything after Leo came back). Alan Alda's character would never win a republican primary, btw.

i'm on season 4

that terrorist white house lockdown episode toward the beginning of season 3 where each character had a monologue in the mess hall with the visiting school group was the worst thing i've ever seen. if i wanted to watch sorkin feverishly masturbate for 42 minutes i'm sure there are other ways.

love this show though

it was written and produced in a matter of days, i'm pretty sure. so i'll give them a mulligan on that one.

[Edited on July 9, 2013 at 6:45 PM. Reason : i guess that could apply to newsroom as well, but i'm referring to the 9/11 ep]

^ is that really how they produce episodes of newsroom?

as for west wing, i'm about a quarter of the way through season 7. mixed emotions on how they've torn apart the staff, but i've heard amazing things about the debate episode. i'll probably watch that tomorrow.

I think the basic plot of a Newsroom episode is outlined in days, but it takes months to build in the sanctimoniousness and misogyny.

Just finished the series. I really enjoyed Series 7.

The election results were just so unrealistic though.

Oh, and Sam Seaborn was NOT at the funeral, so that wasn't a true spoiler.

Which West Wing characters would match up best to the 2016 crop of candidates?

I'll kick it off with the easiest one...Bernie Sanders = Stackhouse for sure.

My google bar is now confused when I start typing in "the w..." TWW vs TWWW.

I enjoy it, especially the real life politicians, soldiers, lawyers, etc. I knew the show had major cred but to hear that so many real life government workers watched the show and enjoyed it that much is huge.
