What makes The West Wing so enthralling? Is it the way Jed Bartlett throws his jacket on so effortlessly? Maybe. Is it the intricate and intelligent plot? Definitely. Is it the way CJ dances? No. The West Wing is a cinematic vision. It’s fast paced and you don’t have to keep up, you get dragged along. But The West Wing just wouldn’t work on the silver screen. It is less glossy and stylish than, say, Lost or Heroes, but it is wittier, funnier, quicker and smarter than they’ll ever be. And for that it should be admired.
