The opening monologue, "Why America isn't the greatest country" elevates this to a five star classic from the off.
It's got His Girl Friday repartee between Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer, a great turn from Sam Waterston, ; two romantic sub plots involving the eye candy characters and plenty of witty, incisive lines and comments on modern American society.
5/5

Whilst the politics might get a little preachy at some points, it is still an outstanding show. Jeff Daniels deserves huge amounts of credit, Emily Mortimer is also excellent. Sam Waterston also puts in a great performance. All of these are backed up by an outstanding supporting cast. All of this packaged with Aaron Sorkin's signature beautifully crafted, mile-a-minute dialogue.

A show I always look forward to. Long may that continue.

I loved the west wing and agree with aaron sorkins politics but this was far too preachy even for me, though jeff daniels was great and the opening scene the best ever
