18 Reasons Why The West Wing is Still the Best TV Drama Ever

By  | 


If you've never seen the NBC political drama The West Wing, I have only one question for you: WHY NOT?! This long-running show was one of the most successful series of the early 2000s. Its perfect balance of serious storylines and refreshing humor made it a sure-fire hit. Its characters are well-crafted and (mostly) likable. The show's President, Jeb Bartlet, is a total badass. There are a ton of incredible female characters. A young Rob Lowe features in the first few seasons. What's not to love?!

Luckily for all of you West Wing newbies out there, you've got a whole seven seasons of the show to enjoy. If you don't get totally hooked after just a couple of episodes, you're doing it wrong. The show isn’t just totally bingeable – it’s rewatchable too. It never gets old! Just in case you need some more convincing, here are just some of the reasons why The West Wing is still one of the best TV dramas ever made.
