The West Wing is my favorite TV show ever. It has smart characters and a great plot. The series, six seasons long, tells the story of the two terms of US President Jed Bartlett and his staff. The cast is excellent, especially the late John Spencer as the chief of staff, Leo McGary.
The characters are great role models. They care about each other and their country, and when they mess up, they apologize. The content is iffy. Language is mild but frequent: d**n to s**t. No sex is shown, but references are made to one character's private relationship and some one-liners are made: "I'm good in bed" is one. Violence, too, is not shown, but there are talks of shootings and terrorist attacks.
All in all, The West Wing is an excellent, patriotic TV show for all. Each show ends with a comforting message, and the episodes never cease to leave me inspired. Highly reccomended!
