Martin Sheen (Actor), Rob Lowe (Actor), Alan Taylor (Director), Alex Graves (Director) & 1 more Rated: Suitable for 12 years and over Format: DVD The West Wing – Season 1 Part 2 [DVD] : West Wing Series One on DVD

With no a question a person of the finest series i have seen in a long time: thankfully i’m only just into series 2 so there is certainly loads of pleasure remaining for me. The characters are well drawn and the scripts are of this kind of a significant high-quality i am not stunned it won so many awards back in the states. I experienced the chance of seeing this many years back but was dubious because of the issue matter. This show has manufactured a believer of me: if you like reliable performing, good scriptwriting and likeable people you can associate with, this is for you.

How do you make persons strolling via corridors fascinating?what is emotive on the specific degree about politics?how the hell do you go about crafting an american drama about the white dwelling with out creating it a non-prevent, turgid, gloopy homage to uncle sam, or an revolutionary anti-capitalist rant?even just after viewing the west wing i’m even now not absolutely sure, but blimey does it control. Chuckle out loud dialogue much less than a stone’s toss away from sob out loud sincerely touching and unpatronising sentimentality. Cannot envision a united kingdom variation staying rather so watchable, intellect.

At any time wondered what politics would be like when politicians behaved how you wished they would?. Then enter the realm of ‘the west wing’. For motives very best recognised to by themselves, warner brothers have determined to convey out the initially collection in two halves so below, for your viewing enjoyment, is the next 50 %. Fantastically created and made by aaron sorkin this american television set collection is bought to existence on dvd thanks to the simple fact that the ‘film stock’ (rather than the standard ‘tv stock’) that was used on this sequence is beautifully reproduced on this format. ‘the west wing’ has gained a lot of awards in the us and it truly is not challenging to see why when you assess this to the usual reasonable we have beamed throughout the waters to our shores. The first detail to strike you is the cast which, despite the occasional annoiance of moira kelly (who was considerably improved forged as the outsider attacking the administartion in the pilot and has considering the fact that been disappointing given that she was permitted into the white house staff members), is fantastic. Every single portrays a character that, despite not necessarily remaining squeaky-clear, constantly attempt to comply with what they feel to be in the most effective interests of the country in the ‘plea-barginning’ world of american politics. The glowing position of each individual present for me is seeing the conversation of josh with his secretary donna which is so brilliant and well-performed that a lesser display would have just thrown them into mattress with each other from the off and be accomplished with it. Just about every exhibit is powerful, concentrating not only on the growth of the many people and their conversation in this reduce-throat planet, but also on the several challenges going through an administration. If, like me, you have no fascination in politics by any means you are going to conclusion up shaking your head at the stop of each episode pondering what screwed-up set of events led to a country remaining run in this way.

If you are a west wing supporter you will adore this dvd. I have viewed it time and time once again and everytime i find new stuff. It really is so rapid in places that you want to enjoy it quite a few moments in any case. I cannot hold out for sequence two to be launched on dvd.

With the dvd it can be excellent not to have just about every episode carved up by television adverts each individual fifteen minutes. The west wing’s bartlett administration is wonderful looking at, the charachers are plausible, the scripts are perfectly written and deal with drama and humour with equal measure. ‘once you begin, you just cannot stop’you will get pleasure from this collection.

The West Wing – Season 1 Part 2 [DVD] : This is an example of tv at it’s very best. The quality of scrip, direction, acting and production can not be bettered. The ensemble cast are excellent. They play the parts of their characters so well that you forget they are acting. Martin sheen would surely be elected uk president if he even decided to stand for the post. One small cirtisism and it is only a small point, but some of the ‘fringe’ characters do disappear from the story lines, without explaination of the course of the series generally. This seems to be more as a result of the contract problems of various actors rather than for consious plot led reasons. If you only buy two dvd’s this year buy this and part1, or better still get the full season pack now available.

Outstanding drama for enyone intrigued in american politics martin sheen helps make a good president and in my view would make an excellent real president perfectly if regan can enyone can.

I was let down with high quality of the dvds`themselves. The previous one just would not perform at all just generating a loud humming noise and refusing to load. I suppose i was taking a chance purchasing a used copy but i have bought from zoverstocks prior to and this is the initial time i have at any time provided them a inadequate assessment, appear on lads get your act jointly.

Well, with these types of a favourable overview for the to start with fifty percent of this season, it would be diffcult not to expect the very same for the latter half. In simple fact, if everything, it gets improved. The arcs are now all in perform, and the unexciting character introductions all around with. By now the many interactions and anticipated interaction and the roles of just about every character have become next character, and all thats still left is to power on via the growing (in intricacy) plot threads. We are introduced to the menace from white supremacists, and i fully predicted the nail-biting cliffhanger. I can only assume that the overall series is like this endlessly gripping, using a topic i know nothing about and generating it so incredibly accessible, with performing quality that outdoes a large amount of film acting in other places. My hat goes off to the different gamers, but largely to aaron sorkin.

This is the award profitable drama about a fictional new president of united states of america – president bartlett. The to start with collection handles him from taking workplace and evolves the figures that as the collection develops come to be irreplaceable. It is compelling viewing even if you are not fascinated in politics, every little thing about it is fantastic from the dialogue to the way it is filmed. If you enjoy this you will want to watch all 7 sequence i extensively recommend it.

    1. Well, with such a positive review for the first half of this season, it would be diffcult not to expect the same for the latter half. In fact, if anything, it gets better. The arcs are now all in play, and the boring character introductions all over with. By now the various relationships and expected interplay and the roles of each character have become second nature, and all thats left is to power on through the growing (in intricacy) plot threads. We are introduced to the threat from white supremacists, and i fully expected the nail-biting cliffhanger. I can only assume that the entire series is like this; endlessly gripping, taking a subject i know nothing about and making it so wonderfully accessible, with acting quality that outdoes a lot of movie acting elsewhere. My hat goes off to the various players, but mostly to aaron sorkin.

    With the dvd it’s great not to have each episode carved up by tv adverts every 15 minutes. The west wing’s bartlett administration is great watching, the charachers are believable, the scripts are well written and cover drama and humour with equal measure. ‘once you start, you just can’t stop’you will enjoy this series.

Laugh out loud dialogue less than a stone’s throw away from sob out loud sincerely touching and unpatronising sentimentality. Can’t imagine a uk version being quite so watchable, mind.

For reasons best known to themselves, warner brothers have decided to bring out the first series in two halves so here, for your viewing pleasure, is the second half. Fantastically written and produced by aaron sorkin this american tv series is bought to life on dvd thanks to the fact that the ‘film stock’ (rather than the usual ‘tv stock’) that was used on this series is perfectly reproduced on this format. “the west wing” has won numerous awards in the us and it’s not difficult to see why when you compare this to the usual fair we have beamed across the waters to our shores. The first thing to strike you is the cast which, despite the occasional annoiance of moira kelly (who was far better cast as the outsider attacking the administartion in the pilot and has since been disappointing since she was allowed into the white house staff), is outstanding. Each portrays a character that, despite not necessarily being squeaky-clean, continually strive to follow what they believe to be in the best interests of the country in the ‘plea-barginning’ world of american politics. The sparkling point of every show for me is watching the interaction of josh with his secretary donna which is so brilliant and well-performed that a lesser show would have just thrown them into bed together from the off and be done with it. Every show is compelling, focusing not only on the development of the various characters and their interaction in this cut-throat world, but also on the various issues facing an administration. If, like me, you have no interest in politics whatsoever you’ll end up shaking your head at the end of each episode wondering what screwed-up set of events led to a country being run in this way.

    What if that power is thrown upon you like a big heavy carpet and you have to struggle underneath just to get some air?. Watch the west wing and wonder. For that’s basically that what it is about. A number of people who are in a difficult situation together and try to cope as well as they can. Each of them has his own character and his own problems in the office. Furthermore, the characters are all three-dimensional. And that often is a rare quality in american productions. True, a lot of effort is spent on making each and everyone of the characters likeable, but in no way the bad streaks are absent. You have to have a liking for the setting of the white house.
