Reviews about The West Wing: The American Presidency as Television Drama (Television and Popular Culture) (7):
Vutaur
I give you three stars only because this was well-written. But I think every essay written did not answer the question as to why we the public liked the series. That this book was published in 2003 means most of the later episodes were reviewed. Also, the essays were written with just the Clinton and Bush White Houses in mind. So I wonder what these writers would be writing after Obama and the trumpeter, and what was missed of the earlier shows. I bought seasons 1-3 several years ago. I did not feel the necessity to watch it again until recently. And in the process I bought the rest of the seasons. No need to wonder why - The Bartlett White House was a TV drama that gave many of us hope. We loved the ability to watch good "government" when there is no longer any good government. But there were also symbols. Not one of you mentioned Dead Irish Writers with its end scenes of the Canadian flag and Oh Canada. After 9/11, Bush never said thank you publicly to Canada for their help. I give Aaron Sorkin credit for saluting Canada in the way he could write an episode to bring it in. As for the Isaac and Ishmael story, that is the truth, exactly how all the troubles started and continue. I could go on and on about symbolism in The West Wing drama as written by Aaron Sorkin, but then it wouldn't sell anyway. Writers and politicians and their pundits know that strife and criticism sell, whereas anything good does not. And finally, your snarky remark about The Stackhouse Filibuster, well it was obviously written before Wendy Davis made her famous filibuster stand in Texas over women's right to choose.

I had to watch 3 seasons in about 2 weeks of The West Wing for my graduate class. This book was very informative and gave well rounded and diverse perspectives of watching The American Presidency on Television. This book offers a collection of reviews and essays as the show as a pedagogical tool, looking at the show from a journalist point of view as well as analysis of the characters and the real people they are meant to portray.

This is more an academic book about politics and the role of the executive office. It's only marginally about the TV show and not at all about the actors, behind the scenes, etc. Plus it only deals with the first couple of seasons. Not light reading in the least.
Magis
This is a really interesting book about a great TV series. The service on the delivery was very good.

I was wondering did the authors ever think of doing a complete breakdown of every episode from 1to7 with guest Star credits and behind the scenes stories and breakdown of plotlines.I would love to read how the actors dealt with John Spencers Death and Leo respectively.I would love to see pictures from behind the scenes like a day of shooting and a tour of the set pictorially speaking.

The West Wing is an idealized look at how the American presidency should have been; idealized but not flawless. Jed Bartlet has plenty of things to drive anyone close to him around the bend. This book looks at the Emmy award-winning series from a number of perspectives. Anyone interested in American history or the presidency will find this an essential look at a peculiarly American institution. Great Job.
speaks about how popluar culture influences the real thing and vice versa. A must for all political junkies
