The West Wing - The Complete Fifth Season
Martin Sheen




Overview -
President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) continues his residency in the White House during this fifth season of the popular NBC show. The lives of his backroom staff and family fall under as much scrutiny as the man himself, offering a fascinating glimpse of what life as the president of the United States could be like. The season begins with Bartlet's daughter, Zoey, still in the hands of kidnappers. As the rescue effort gathers pace, art imitates life as suicide bombers, the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the threat of terrorism loom large--all of which were pertinent issues in 2004 when this season was shot. Meanwhile, Bartlet's staff struggles to keep the press under control, the funeral for a former president finds Bartlet distracted by the situation in Saudi Arabia, a documentary crew descends on the White House, and a contamination alert breaks out in the West Wing. In this absorbing piece of television, Martin Sheen and the supporting cast deserve credit for their realistic portrayal of life in the White House.
