‘The West Wing: The Complete Series’ is on sale for just $99.99, which really is an excellent deal since the list price is $299.98. But it’s valid today only, May 28, 2010, so hop over there if you’re interested. I haven’t seen it yet, but it scored a ton of votes in my “what to watch next poll” for Jane After Dark on TV Squad. ‘Gilmore Girls’ won, but I’m sure I’ll be doing ‘The West Wing’ eventually, so I’ll probably grab this series today.
The set is held in a dossier file box, with a faux-leather navy blue exterior graced with an embossed silver-foil presidential seal. Inside are 45 DVDs held in seven individually tabbed and numbered fold-out files (one for each complete season) with a pocket for each DVD and ‘West Wing’ cast members pictured on each fold-out file.
The audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, gag reels, and other extras are the same as the previous individual-season DVD sets, but with this set, you get a glossy illustrated episode guide. Also exclusive to this set is Aaron Sorkin’s Emmy-nominated teleplay for the pilot episode, along with a new foreword by Sorkin detailing the genesis of the series from concept to casting.
