27 Reasons Why You're Still Watching "The West Wing"
"Charlie. What's next?"
The West Wing DVD boxset costs next to nothing these days. You can also catch it on-demand.
At the end of every episode you're struggling not to shout out "JUST. ONE. MORE. EPISODE."
Then there's the theme tune.
Created by the man with the greatest name ever: W. G. SNUFFY WALDEN.
And those titles! How wonderful those titles were.
IT ALSO HAD EPISODE TITLES LIKE THIS...
Why else are we still watching? Well look no further than walking and talking.
Nobody on television these days has the same chemistry as these two had back then.
No other show has exchanges like this either.
And then there's the power of POTUS.
Leo's words of wisdom were pretty special too.
Then there's C.J Cregg, the coolest one.
She had a special way of dealing with people.
She even makes falling into a swimming pool cool.
Sam isn't cool (but he's still amazing). For example, look at his moves during C.J's 'The Jackall'.
You know never to mess with Toby.
Dr. Bartlet was also very straight to the point.
President Bartlet was generally brilliant (and of course has an excellent way to put on his coat).
Sadly The West Wing has dated a little. For example, this 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' doesn't really apply to current US politics.
You find all the old computers a bit odd.
Charlie's tech knowledge is outdated.
And Margaret's email problems are outdated.
Don't forget Josh's obsession back then with his fan website, the infamous "LemonLyman.com"
You don't care though. You don't even care about The West Wing being all overly optimistic from time to time.
Then there's 'Two Cathedrals' of course.
And of course 'Peter's Projection Map'.
Bloody love you West Wing.
