I became a fan of the west wing by accident. I caught it late one night on channel four, and although i was not quite sure what it was about, I was intreeged. I have since bought all the sesaons avalible on dvd and have been watching season five on E4. There seems to be something missing from this season. I know Aron sorkin no longer writes for the show, and of course there is no more rob lowe in it either, but I also think the generall quality has now slipped away from the show. I used to think it was unmisable quality drama, now, if i miss an episode, I am not that bothered anymore. I still watch it, but I am just not as into it as i once was. Does any one else feel this way? I am just expecting to much from a long running show?
