The complete fifth series of the popular American political drama series. In '7A WF 83429', the search for Zoey continues and Walken takes a hard line against the kidnappers that could contribute to her death. In 'The Dogs of War', bombs drop on Qumar upon Walken's orders and as the hours pass without any word on Zoey's whereabouts. In 'Jefferson Lives', when he realises that his first choice for Vice President faces an uphill fight for nomination, Jed nominates a congressman that none of the staff can get excited about. In 'Han', Josh fails to sway an unruly congressman who insists on voting against the administration on the vice presidential confirmation. In 'Constituency of One', Will Bailey receives an offer to become Vice President Russell's top aide. In 'Disaster Relief', the fallout on the Hill from Carrick's switch to the Republican party exiles Josh deep into a White House doghouse. In 'Separation of Powers', as Chief Justice Ashland's health problems continue to mount, Joe Quincy, Ashland's former clerk, is pressed into service to persuade him to retire. In 'Shutdown', Jed's decision not to be held hostage by Haffley shuts down the federal government. In 'Abu el Banat', the Bartet clan attempts to gather for a holiday dinner and Jed must deal with a hostage situation in Sudan, an assisted suicide in Oregon, his son-in-law's yearn to run for the House of Representatives, and his grandson's desire to spend time with his grandpa. In 'The Stormy Present', President Bartlet attends the funeral of a former president with other former presidents Glenallen Walken and D. Wire Newman, while monitoring a possible situation in Saudi Arabia. In 'The Benign Prerogative', in the days leading up to the State of the Union address, Toby gets crucial voter feedback when he accompanies Joey as she mall-tests the speech around the nation. In 'Slow News Day', Toby gets Jed's support to seize a controversial window of opportunity to save Social Security, but is hampered by Jed's mandate to keep the operation under wraps. In 'The Warfare of Genghis Khan', an unlikely party comes to the aid of the administration as it seeks to discover the party responsible for nuclear testing in the Indian Ocean. In 'An Khe', The SEALs are sent in on a perilous mission to rescue a Navy plane shot down in North Korean waters. In 'Full Disclosure', C.J. has an intensely personal reason for leading the charge when Hoynes decides to rehab his image in a bid for the presidency by slandering Jed and Leo in a tell-all biography. In 'Eppur Si Muove', when a conservative Republican Congresswoman targets Ellie's research project in an effort to discredit Jed, Toby discovers that the source of the leak is uncomfortably close to home. In 'The Supremes', Jed and the staff vet potential Supreme Court appointees. In 'Access', a documentary camera crew follows C.J. around for a not-so-typical day in the White House. In 'Talking Points', Josh is anguished when he realizes that his successful trade negotiation skills managed to create the opportunity for a computer company to move 17,000 jobs to India. In 'No Exit', an airborne contamination alert locks down the West Wing, forcing staffers to stay put until the all-clear is sounded. In 'Gaza', Donna Moss, Percy Fitzwallace, Andrea Wyatt and a couple of congressmen are in the Middle East on a fact finding mission when their cars are blown up. Finally in 'Memorial Day', Jed weighs his options for responding to the bombing as Israeli and Palestinian forces face off against each other.

As a writer want-to-be, I am amazed at the accuracy and overall knowledge that went in to the script-writing. Bringing real life storylines right from the front page headlines to our television sets, as if we were a "fly-on-the-wall" in the Oval Office. Not covering up and hiding, but facing "head-on" the scandals that have corrupted and brought down countless Presidencies and high level politicos. In a time when our country is in peril of darkness and our government can't come together to agree on turning on the lights, we have been given an owners manual, "American Government For Dummies" a/k/a "The West Wing" seasons I to VII. These actors, playing their roles with a sincerity and believability that would make you write in their names on a ballot and vote for them in real life, deliver the government back to the American People, where it belongs. If our real Politicians were as caring and as honest as these characters have been written to be, there would be no close elections. To borrow a line from an earlier West Wing episode,"The people are fed up with having to vote for the candidate that they dislike the least".
Once upon a time, being a politician was a "Call to Duty", much the same as joining the military or becoming a teacher. You wern't in it for the money or the fame. You put in long hours and scrificed time with friends and family for very low pay, you were doing your duty to God and Country for your fellow Countrymen. The West Wing Series reiterates that "Call To Duty", as the actors demonstrate the long hours and lack of personal time, in the day to day running of our country.
I urge you to buy and watch the entire 7 seasons in order, the knowledge and entertainment are without compare.
The series suffers also from the departure of Rob Lowe as Sam Seaborne.
But the West Wing on a bad year is still good tv, and if you got sucked in by the first four years or reruns of the show, season five is still worth it to get to the last two seasons.
Sam is gone and Will Bailey (played by Josh Malina) has taken over as Deputy Communications Director. Richard Schiff's Toby Ziegler, never Mr. Glad-n-Happy, at least entertained us with sarcastic wit as long as the words were supplied by Aaron Sorkin DeBergerac. In this season Toby just seems a dark and gloomy grump, although Toby achieves perhaps his greatest political accomplishment working behind the scenes to join both Republicans and Democrats in a measure to "save" social security (since it seems inevitably headed toward financial ruin.)
Bradley Whitford is still a legislative bulldog as Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman. The late John Spencer is still the White House rock as Chief of Staff Leo McGarry. Allison Janney's Claudia Jean Cregg remains a strong and compassionate character, and Janney won the last of her four West Wing Emmies this season. Dule Hill makes Charlie Young even wiser and more mature as the President's body man and Martin Sheen keeps the show above water as President Josiah Bartlett.
The loss of Sorkin hurts the series both from a loss of snappy dialogue and a lack of narrative arc as many episodes have superficial connection to anything else in the West Wing Universe.
It looks like the West Wing and it's still good, but the flat writing make the shows look as if the performers are sleep-walking.
