I don't like the West Wing

I think about three quarters of my friends are West Wing fans. Everyone loves it. I don't. It just seems to be a mixture of talking quickly and vague, platitudinous politics. The emotional weight that others find in it I just don't see. Is there something wrong with me?

I used to like it, but I'm over it now.

I think the novelty wore off. They don't even play reruns here anymore.

I do enjoy it- the later episodes aren't as good but its unfair to judge a program by its weaker points. The earlier ones though I think are pretty good. But hey its all a matter of taste- I just thought I'd speak up for the pro West Wing elements.

I disagree with Gracchi i thik the campiing episiodes of the Sanchez ect campaign are maong the very best

I enjoyed it but thought it was a bit of a cop out not to have at least tried the format with a Republican president - Alan Alda would have been great.

I guess their decision not to speaks to the underlying political prejudices of the writers.
