    Synopsis


    Season one of The West Wing ended with a violent cliffhanger, as President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) and his staff were apparently targeted for assassination. As season two begins, it is revealed that the intended bull's-eye of the attack was actually Bartlet's young African-American aide, Charlie Young (Dule Hill), who had raised the hackles of white supremacists for getting "too friendly" with the president's daughter Zoey (Elizabeth Moss). There is a bit of suspense in the first couple of episodes, inasmuch as the full extent of injuries to Bartlet and his deputy chief of staff, Josh Lyman (Bradley Whitford), are not immediately revealed to the public. This potentially tragic occasion permits the series' writers to pause for a few moments and flash back to the early days of Bartlet's presidential campaign, thereby explaining how such loyal aides as Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe), Toby Ziegler (Richard Schiff), and C.J. Cregg (Allison Janney) hopped on the Bartlet bandwagon. Janel Moloney, as Josh's assistant Donna Moss, is moved up to regular status this season, while Emily Procter joins the cast as White House clerk Ainsley Hayes, who as a devout Republican is at first cold-shouldered by everyone on the Bartlet staff except Leo, who is in awe of her photographic memory and organizational skills. Major season-two plot developments include President Bartlet's revelation to those within his private circle that he has multiple sclerosis, which may scotch his bid for a second term; the kidnapping of five DEA agents in South America, and the disastrous consequences of a rescue attempt; the efforts by the administration to push through a "Family Wellness" bill; a fomenting political crisis in Haiti; and a highly controversial governmental lawsuit against all of big tobacco. The season concludes with a profound personal tragedy for Bartlet involving his loyal secretary Delores (Kathryn Joosten), which leads to a crisis of faith and a momentous decision. ~ Hal Erickson

      Aaron Sorkin's writing is sublime

      When the name, Aaron Sorkin, is on a project, we want to see it, and then, we want to know we can see it again, so it's good these are available. From his films, which include A Few Good Men and American President, to tv series from Sports Night through West Wing, Studio 60, and the current critically-acclaimed Newsroom, he WRITES. Specific to this West Wing purchase (but consistent through his work) the dialogue is sharp, witty, insightful. Characters are wonderful, the actors live up to the page and the sets and pace add to the visual and cerebral nourishment.

      Best West Wing Season!

      Posted

      The second season is the season that hooked me on West Wing. Following the suspenseful shooting that ended the first season, the second season delivers a smartly-written and dramatic picture of politics behind the doors of the White House. I have seen this season at least 5 times, if not more, and I am currently watching through it again. Some of the writing of later seasons lacks the humor, wit, and suspense that the second season does so well! If you have not seen The West Wing: Season 2, you are seriously missing out!

      While some shows may go into a sophomore slump, this was not one of them. In fact, everything gets even better as the second season heats up and rivets the West Wing to new heights of drama and political intrigue. This series only gets better with age.

      Even better than the first season, the second season of The West Wing is an incredible show. Smartly written and gripping, if you like politics you will love this show; if you don't like politics, watch this show and you soon will.

      A fast moving hit TV series of how events unfold and are decided in the White House. Reminds me a bit of the ambiance we had in our office.
