Day #02 - A show that you wish more people were watching.

I'm going to go with The West Wing. It's a series that plutos_revenge bullied persuaded me into buying - and I don't regret her bullying persuasion for one moment, quite the opposite.

The basis of it is simplicity in itself: it's a series about what goes on in the West Wing in the White House, but it's more than just about politics, much, much more. What makes it work so well is the cast; they are amazing, they gel, they work well together, they are all believable, real, flawed, intense, caring, passionate human beings - even those I didn't really like that much I found myself caring about, because they weren't just names and faces, they were real.

The first four seasons are, in my opinion, the best and in the final season and a half it is more broken up as we move from the team we know and love to a new election campaign. But even though I didn't enjoy the last three seasons as much as the first four, I still really enjoyed the series and is something J and I will be rewatching and rewatching. Even the politics was interesting.

And not only did it have an amazing main cast, but it had some great guest stars too. Yes, *hands over lots of cushions* plutos_revenge, some I recognised: Mark Harmon and Alan Alda to name but two.

If you have never seen it and have been put off purely because you think it's all about politics, then trust me, it isn't. Give it a go, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
